    A friend of mine has a set of Skeetmaster Tubes in his Browning Citori (12ga). The ejectors for the 410, 28, & 20 gauge are missing. I heard Skeetmasters is out of business. He needs new ejectors. Does anyone have any info for parts ?

    Thanks,Herman

    They've been gone for a long time, probably 20 years or more. I think your only hope is to call Briley and see if they can do anything for you. I think I remember reading somewhere that they had serviced these in the past but I wouldn't bet on it.

    SkeetMaster/Purbaugh tubes typically used ejectors from the host guns version of a four barrel set (meaning the 20ga tubes used ejectors from the 20ga barrel of a four barrel set, ect). May be a place to start.

    At one time, Briley would attach the Skeetmaster tubes to their chamber inserts. These work very well. The Skeetmaster tubeset was first class. Guns with hard to remove extractors, and the Briley/Kolar machine put them out of business.

    I have been told that the Skeetmasters/Purbaugh tubes were the best choked fixed tubes in the business at one time. I know of several sets floating around that were converted by Briley to a new stainless steel chamber.
