    i just purchased a used beretta 686 onyx with 26 1/2 in.barrels.i went to the sportsmans club yesterday to an open skeet shoot and some guys were telling me i should invest in some extended choke tubes i believe it takes mobile choke style.i am obviously a rookie and enjoyed shooting this shotgun yesturday and would like to get proficiant at this,so ur advice would be greatly appriciated,.
    p.s. my first round i shot 16 for 25 and second round 18 for 25,first time ever at club.i have shot clay pidg in back yard with hand thrower but never from trap.

    First thing you need to do is pull out the ones you have and see what you have got, type and constriction. Correct constriction for each game is more important than getting extended chokes. See link above. You need open chokes for skeet. (either skeet chokes, or cylinder, or IC) Have fun with that new gun. Mark

    Carlson's makes some nice tubes and they are less than 35 each for my browning

    choketube.com (the "sporting clay" tubes are for all clay games)

    If you're just shooting skeet a pair of skeet chokes should do it or maybe 1 skeet and 1 improved cylinder.

    skeet is usually .005 and IC is usually .010 constrictions

    4 notches is IC. No notches can be a variety of things. You need to pull them out. Use a choke wrench or a quarter. There is more information on the outside of the body of the chokes. See toward the bottom of the link I posted above from Beretta. Mark

    binny,

    There's no conclusive evidence that extended choke tubes pattern any better than flush choke tubes.

    They're just easier to get in and out, and they look cool. Period.

    And they cost more.

    Why do they cost more? Because there's more metal and more machining involved in making one.

    Choke tubes aren't magic.

    Carlson or Briley are good choices. All extended tubes for me.

    You don't need extended tubes. They are nice for installing and removing.

    You probably have Mobil Chokes, and Beretta has extended ones on sale for $12.00, and flush for $10.00. Click the link.

    The choke with no notches is a skeet choke, and can be a USA constriction, or a very large .730" Euro.

    thanks binny.

    I use extended chokes, but only for the reason of protecting the end of my barrel. Okay..... okay...... They look cool too, but I think the best reason is so the barrel doesn't fall victem to my stupidity. I use the factory Beretta Victory tubes.

    I have a set of Briley extended chokes that I use for clays and hunting in my 686. I like them a lot but they are expensive.

    Your money is probably better spent on lessons than chokes, IMHO.

    Binny,

    Go to www.blackbore.com and check out their offerings. I've been using a pair of IC & IM for a few months now and I'm quite pleased with them.

    Jeez, why don't they have those $12 chokes for a 20ga? I'd snap them up in a heartbeat.
