    I picked up another TM1 and it has a choke in it (Mod)and appears stuck. It has a 2 slots on the top to remove it. Anyone know what type of choke would this be so I can get the correct tool to remove it?
    thanks

    You can always just stick a quarter in the slots, and turn it out. If it's too tight, you can just put an adjustable wrench on the quarter.

    A little bit of heat from a blow torch should also expand the barrel, hopefully, enough to get the choke out.

    Years ago when we bent barrels, we used a acty torch to a couple of Perazzi barrels to "bend" them. We were careful with the heat so as to not loosen the ribs and/or discolor the blue. We never ruined a barrel either.

    Be darn careful if you apply a wrench to the "quarter" method. If you bung-up the two slots, you may then cause yourself more trouble than you want.

    Might even consider some penetrating oil too.

    If you "bung" up the slots with a quarter, you probably want to replace that choke anyway. I've buggered up a few quarters, but never a choke.

    Obviously the proper choke wrench is the preferred method. I just mention the quarter if you can't find anything else.

    Whatever you do, don't use a flat head screwdriver, and a hammer. I saw someone bugger the end of their barrel trying to do that. Ouch!

    Question is with the two slot any idea what's the manufactor of the choke. Also,
    who makes a good choke wrench with the two slots?

    B-Square made some nice quality choke removers. I don't know if they still do. They were color coded. Green=Remington, Blue=Beretta etc.

    Good Luck,
    John
