    Jack, what's the name of that grease you use on break open guns
    (and where do you get it?)

    Thx Bill

    Jack gave some tips at the above link. Perhaps this is what you're referring to.

    late to the party. had to move the dock today. water only 2' from low summer normal. did not get a chance to shoot today. singles and hcp tomorrow at Metro GC in Blaine MN.

    WBG is really good. But if you believe in something else, ok and just hit the same areas of a break open gun.

    I have my exceptions to my own rules (Doug Braker gets he WBG credit for use)
    But I cleaned the old stuff off (do that every couple of times I shoot) and in the process drizzled some 30 wt oil into the ejector. The oil serves to lube and disperse some grime collected from the sticky lubes. Wipe off excess, re-grease the radius, hinge pin, a touch on the monobloc side, etc. Adn ready to go for today. Out of the case it comes, I assemble, work the action a couple of times and wipe off any excess.

    And while this is not a criticism of any gun in particular, I found the CG to be abnormally stiff. Can and will a couple of your CG owners tell me how you overcame the metal resistance and how you go about treating your gun now?

    And I have friends that just whip out a spray can of misty stuff, blow some in the receiver and assemble. I keep waiting for the freeze-up, but it never comes. And my buddy Charlie uses that clear stuff that looks like mousse and is quite liberal about it. Ewwww... yuck. So, I guess what I am saying is that to each his own on what you use, but make sure you hit the wear points and the back of the bbl lug.

    Older and somewhat loose receivers love WBG. They do not like the thin lubes. Adn WBG stays in place. My TMX is pretty tight and I want it to stay that way. my MX3 operates like the tolerances of a swiss watch with WBG.

    Another question for MIA...

    Jack, will (non Perazzi) extended choke tubes fit into a factory Perazzi choke tubed barrel? Is the factory thread design the same throughout the Perazzi line (TM-4 thru current factory choke tube models)?

    Thanks,

    milt

    Milt. the threads are irrelevant. Gen 1 chokes had threads at the end of the bbl, gen 2 they went to the beginning of the choke. Gen 3 they had no knurled ends (flush) but were pretty short (worked ok tho) and I have never held a Gen 4 choke.

    I am not a purist re choke tubes. Fixed or CT is OK by me. the later guns with factory big bores seem to be coming out with fixed in the low 30s const.

    Jack, so regardless of the Gen design, I should be able to install an extended choke tube...right? Even if I had a custom one done??? When I say extended, I mean by 1 inch or more.

    Thanks again,

    milt

    Milt here is a picture posted on another thread by Marcello.

    Shows Gen 1 thru Gen 4 differences.

    don't forget that gen 4 tubes were for 18.4 bores, 18.7 chokes are so marked but look the same.
