    understand but that doesnt mean thin wall choke tubes like briley or angleport-- it just means that some conversion was done apparently by someone

    I think the problem is terminology- I have always thought of only the square threaded chokes as thin wall choke tubes

    Colonial Chokes made thin wall tubes for after market application. They were used often on Brownings due to the thin walls. That might be what you have. The choke tubes should be marked as such.
    My 2 cents.

    Those measurements are very similar to my aftermarket choke installed by Carlsons.

    John once you find the right thread splurge and buy a custom choke tube if you plan on shooting the barrel Wrights will make you a tube to match the thread in the barrel and so will Briley and the extended chokes seem to pattern better IMHO.
