    Take a 3/4 piece of teflon tape and put it on the threads. You don't need to wrap them completely. I received this information from other tube manufactures, not Beretta.

    Put some grease on the threads and then tighten them with a wrench. I have
    the same gun, and that works for me.

    My Browning and Caesar both come loose. I just check them between posts.

    All I use is gun oil on the threads. Also I clean my guns quite often it seems as compared to others according to some posts in this forum.

    The Seminole chokes I use on my Beretta 390 work loose about every 5 rounds or so, and I got in the habit of snugging them while moving to the next station. During sporting clay rounds, however, I'd forget now and then and decided to do the teflon tape wrap. It surely works. The Seminoles don't have slots milled in them to use a wrench, save for a pair of vise-grips, but I'm not that desperate.

    Get some Door-Ease or similar grease stick from an automotive or tool store and apply liberally to the threads/body of the choke tube. It keeps the tube from backing out and also keeps it from freezing in place.

    Try anti sieze grease used on heavy machinery or Birchwood Casey Choke Tube Grease. I have used both and loosening of tubes is not an issue and neither is getting stuck.

    Briley has choke tube grease. They are probably all the same, but they keep the tube from coming out or sticking in. Bill Malcolm
