How many times can you screw a choke in and out of a barrel before you wear out the barrel threads ?

I've got it set up with Briley with direct withdrawal from my account. They send me a new IM, LF and Full every 6 months. Works out great and I never have to worry about wearing my choke threads out and not having a choke ready. For what it's worth, I usually only get about 232 times. Maybe I need to try a different choke grease.

Rotti: 3rd post and you're the etiquette monitor?

OK, I'll answer the question to the best of my ability. I've yet to hear of anyone wearing out the choke tube threads in their gun's barrel. But if you could find that rare bird...would he know how many times he's screwed/unscrewed it?

And do we know if he typically leaves the choke in if it's gotten wet, so it's rusty in the barrel ? And who did the threading? Some are better than others. And which choke tubes? Factory or after-market?

So, I think I'm safe in saying that if you keep the threads and choke tubes cleaned and lubed (and don't force the choke in with a 5-lb hammer)...the answer is: "a whole bunch of times." And I seriously doubt anyone has counted choke removal.

There, Miss Manners. Is that better?

Dang, I was WAY off. I was thinking 437,025 times. I keep a running tally in my gun case.

I sincerely hope this is a farce... Because IF any of above number were true, Sporting and Trap shooters would go through barrels like AR's do, and be a large market of replacements in 3rd party options. None of these exist currently.

Same here!


I looked at my 2 Perazzis and 14 Mod 12s ... and none of them had any threads!

Must be a thread thief out there!

A fellow I worked with who is now retired told me a long time ago that there are no stupid questions just stupid answers.

I think he was wrong, I have have stupid questions and answers all the time.

Denny you crack me up, I really truly like your replies, thanks
