Hello,
I bought a used Comp 1 , that has choke tubes installed.
I know that they are not factory, but after market.

One tube has I Mod etched along the side by what looks like one of those engraving pens was used.
The second tune has L F and Lead Shot etched along the side, this one looks like a factory marking.

I do not see any brand markings on either tubes. I think they are Beretta Optima style tubes, based on the threads being 2 3/4” from the bottom of tube.

Just wanting to see if anybody had a better idea about determining tube style.

Thanks

Being an older model, Briley might have inserted thin wall choke tubes in the barrels. I have a set of Briley 20ga inserts and one of the tubes only says "MOD .610" does not mention Briley. I would suggest you email the pictures to Briley and see if the tubes are made by them.

My Briley tubes are done that way. Hand done with an electric pencil.
If the threads are "square" (flat across the top). They would be Briley's.

The very early Briley thinwalls were only marked with an electric pencil.
I had some that were like that. I think they were made like that about 1980.
Also Briley thinwalls have notches at the top that are smaller than other chokes.
I think only Briley thinwalls have the small notches and the square, shallow threads.
