    I am wondering about #6 & #8 Perazzi chokes. Is the #6 improved Mod, and the #8 full? I did a search and did not find much info. Also, I looked at a TM-1. I was looking at the the letters "AM" in a stamped box on the bottom side of the barrel where the gun fits together. Are these the letters that identify the year of make? Thanks! Corey

    AM would probably indicate 1984 proof date. Ever thought of measuring the internal dia. of chokes at very end??

    Numbers are in mm of constriction. at .004/mm, #6 is .024 & #8 is .032 of constriction. Pretty close to nominal .025 for IM and .030 for FC.

    .030 is Light Full according Briley and a few others. .035 is Full and .040 is Extra Full.

    Chokes are what they shoot w/ any particular load regardless of the #. The # is a good guide in general but until you put it on the paper you are just guessing and hoping.

    In a TMS that I had, and like a fool sold, the #6 was as full as a #10.
