A young friend of mine wants to buy a quail gun. Found used gun Browning 28 inch,20 gauge, fixed chokes , both skeet. Can this gun have Briley chokes? Resale value?

He'd be better off to start with a Browning with choke tubes. Then he can have a versatile gun. Not worth it to pay to have it choke tubed. A 12ga can be down-loaded if needed. Some 20ga field loads can recoil as much as a 12ga. Easy to change LOP as he ages. Gun fit is important to shoot well and enjoy the gun. Good hunting! Bob

Almost certainly Briley can thinwall it. It won't be cheap though, $429 to thread both barrels including 5 flush chokes. Plus shipping there and back, so call it $500 for a round number.

I agree, 20 gauge with skeet chokes is fine for quail. I also wouldn't open up a factory 20 gauge skeet in 28 inches, those are getting harder to find. JMO.

Why not a 20 gauge 1100 or 1187 with Rem-Chokes? A lot cheaper than a Browning Skeet. Recoil will be less too. A friend of mine found an old Winchester 1400 IC in a garage sale for $150. He takes more quail than any of us that hunt together. And is not worried about any scratches or rain.
