    Anything different available other than the pos that comes from the factory?

    I think hand tighten is fine actually for the extended tubes.

    Haven used the internal only tubes

    For the standard (flush) choke tubes, the plastic 4 lug wrench works fine.

    For the extended tubes, I recommend trying a couple of different "crescent" wrenches. The first one I had was useless, but after I complained to the Beretta rep at the Cardinal Center, he gave me a new one which was much better.

    Thats why i went with the extended chokes in my Beretta plus they protect the end of your barrel from any barrel to concrete oops. That can be an issue for us short people.

    Beretta makes a much better wrench than that thing that comes with the gun. Its got a real handle, and made of much heavier steel with a nice sharp hook.
    Here is is:

    I have one and like a lot. After I crack em loose, I spin em out with an Shotgun Specialties taper wrench like the Briley one shown above.

    I guess there's no solution other than checking tightness between rounds.
    I'm on the second Beretta wrench as above. I like the choke tube tight, but maybe It's me that needs to change..Thanks for the suggestions, may order a tapered wrench and give it a try..

    I thought everyone immediately threw those things away and used a Briley wrench?
