    In many shooters' opinion (mine included), simply the best there is.

    Ditto. There have been numerous threads regarding them in the recent past - do a search for them and you'll read a lot of opinions (and I can't recall any that were negative).

    GREAT pattern.

    They loosen (you have to re-tighten them constantly)

    They are unslotted (you need a taper choke wrench)

    I put a little anti sieze on the threads and shoot a couple thousand rounds. Never had one come loose or freeze up . Great chokes that produce nice even paterns without hot centers.

    John,

    I find the same thing,got into the habit to give it a twist when changing stations.I now use a little blue Locktite on upper four threads or so.(thin)

    I use one in my BT. It's a light full and it has never given me any trouble at all. Lots of smoke.

    Captin. A Perazzi 18.7 bore is .736 a Wright #3 Exit Diamater is .712 making the choke .24 IM. Perazzi bore .736 a Wright #4 Exit Diamater is .708 making the choke .28 LF. Hope this helps clear up any confusion.

    If you own a K80 you might have trouble with the threads matching up, so try it before you buy it. I have them for other guns and they work fine but they couldn't find one that would work in my K gun and we went through a bunch.

    Don, that's puzzling because I had a full set of Stu's chokes for my Krieghoff, some of which I purchased from Stu at the Grand and some that were purchased from him over the phone. At no time did he ask which threads I had or even look at my gun's barrel - he just reached into a bin and handed me a tube. I would think that you and especially Stu would have known if your tubes were an aftermarket installation, so I'm stumped!

    Don, I had the same situation. I purchased a set of chokes from Stu at the Illinois State Shoot. He had to go through roughly 3-5 chokes before he found ones to fit my barrel. Don't know exactly why there were issues with the chokes, but I think they are the best patterning chokes I have owned.

    Shoot Well

    I, also had an issue with a tube for my K80. Have been using a #6 and a #8 for a few years. Recently purchased a #7 and it did not fit. Returned it and the replacement fit fine.

    To "Old Aviator",

    What are the Wright choke tubes you have for Kolar 0.740" barrels, are they the 0.300" extended type, and how many $$?

    Thank you,

    Larry
