    I am thinking about having thin wall tubes installed on my gun. I shoot mostly sporting clays and I think it's time to have more options with the chokes. The gun is fixed mod/full.
    I've read some negative comments about Briley on here lately and was wondering if they're still the best to do this type of work. Is Seminole a good choice? Is there anyone else to consider?
    Thanks for the help.

    Briley just installed thin wall tubes on my Perazzi. This is the fourth or fifth set of barrels they have done for me, all were excellent workmanship and results. There have been some bad experiences posted here about Briley, I have never had a problem with them.

    I had a Briley "thinwall" system put in my '65 Superposed Broadway. This was a few years back, no regrets, made the Broadway a much more flexible firearm.
    At the time, Briley did not offer extended tubes, but I'd opt for them today if they are.

    Great idea to get that fixed-choke gun shooting again!

    Consider Carlson's in Atwood, KS.

    More reasonable pricing than Briley, and faster turn around. Quality workmanship.

    Click on their "CUSTOMER SERVICE" menu and select "Installation" for pricing.

    Briley.....the system that is the standard. Stu Wright @ www.wrightsgunsmiths.com can put the briley system in for you and charges alot less. He also makes extended tubes for the briley systems.

    Hey,

    My understanding is that anyone can cut the tube but only Briley can cut the barrel.

    Take care,

    Jim

    Poster... you mentioned Seminole... I don't think they do thin wall installations. Briley has been doing them the longest. I've had them do a couple of guns.... no complaints. Don't know about the others.
