    I just pick up a Perazzi MX-15 over the weekend but was wondering what does the numbers on the chokes mean and there measurement. They are #2,4,6,8,10. Which one is a full choke and so on?
    Thanks for the info

    Perazzi chokes are in increments of .004

    ie:
    2 = .008 or Improved Cylinder
    4 = .016 or Light Modified
    6 = .024 or Improved Modified
    8 = .032 or Light Full
    10 = .040 or Full

    Probably .725 But you need a bore Gage to be sure...

    The numbers on Perazzi chokes are 1/10 of mm. That's the constriction of each choke.

    x4 as above mentioned you'll get it in 1/1000 inches. 6x4=24 means 0.020". (Neil corrected me, 0.024")

    On left side of the barrel, it'll show the bore size in mm. 18.4 approx. 0.724" , 18.7 approx. 0.736" that 's pretty much the largest bore size allowed by Italian proof house.
