    Perazzi Chokes on Ebay. Is a "0" marking the same as cylinder choke? Also what constriction would a "4" be?

    Yes, Perazzi "0" matches bore diameter and is a Cylinder choke. "4" is 0.4mm or about 0.016" or Light Modified.

    As I recall, the secret to Perazzi Chokes is to Multiply by 4. So a choke numbered 8 would be a 0.032, a 6 would be .024, and yes a 4 would be .016

    you can usually take the number on the choke x 4. A #8 choke tube being .032 constriction.

    hunter44, the choke restriction is not all you have to pay attention to. You also have to know the inside diameter of the barrel they were intended for. Perazzi made barrels in at last three different bore diameters (and maybe more), and the chokes have to match.

    Perazzi usually changed the design of the choke tube when the bbl. diameter changed. ie threads on top threads on bottom.
