    What do the numbers on Krieghoff KX-5 choke tubes refer to ?

    Looking at a used KX-5 with three tubes. Think they are marked #2, #3, and #4.

    Is this nominally modified, improved-modified, and full ?

    What would be a good source for additional choke tubes ? Price ?


    Thanks.

    Hammer,

    The KX-5 chokes and the K-80 chokes are the same and interchangeable. So if you are looking for additional chokes, you can shop the ones that are for K-80 guns as well. The KX-5 is treating me well. I've owned it for about 2 months and have improved my scores with it. It is a solid gun with an adjustable rib that allows you to put it where you want it. It took me six rounds to find out I needed to set it 100% high, and I am amazed at the outcome...you will be too.

    I just bought a modified titanium choke (#2) for my KX-5 and just love the thing. I paid $85 shipped for it. The regular price from Krieghoff is $135. You can post a thread here on trapshooters if you are looking to buy and you'll get some takers.

    Yes, the numbers mean the size. #2 modified, #3 IM and #4 Full.

    #4 (full)= .034 constriction
    #3 (IM) = .027 constriction
    #2 (Mod) = .017 constriction

    Get a Kick's ported choke Stainless,extends about 1 1/2" They call it the Smoke,and it works great. I bought the full and imp mod. $60.00 or so plus shipping. My friends at our club call it the Shredder.

    Why do you need additional choke tubes? You already have what you need. Don't be a sucker for flashy chokes.
