    Has Remington always used the same choke tube configuration for standard 12 gauge barrels? I have an early choke tube 1100 skeet barrel that only has two slots in the tubes for installation, I've seen newer models that have four. The plastic containers that mine are in are marked Trulock.

    Thanks

    All the early Remington "skeet" barrels that I have seen have not had removable chokes. I'm thinking these are aftermarket chokes that were installed later. Usually not using the Remchoke thread pattern. A picture would be helpful. Does it look like this?

    Remington Manufactured RemChokes have 4 slots. Trulock is an aftermarket choke manufacturer. I think early trulock chokes only had 2 slots. If your barrel is marked "Skeet" then it probably has had Colonial-type chokes installed.

    That is not a Remchoke. Trulock makes a generic TruChoke that is used in aftermarket installations. To me, it looks like that is what you have.

    Thanks, I sent a pic to Trulock. I'll see what they say.
