As I understand it, The rings referred to are the contricity rings. These are formed when the barrel is being made. When a barrel is overbored these rings are lost. Most barrel/choke tuners overbore barrels so they have more work with in the choke section (they don't overbore that last few inches as that is where they do their magic).

Here is a pic of the rings you will see in a Ljutic:(thanks JAC1)





These are intended to help strip the wad from the shot as it exits the barrel. I have no idea if it works or not.

Ljutic's most popular chokes are .700 and .705 on their fixed choke guns and with .740 bore, you will find some tighter and looser like .690 and .710
but they nare few and far between.

A few folks already mentioned that the purpose of the rings in a Ljutic were designed to "slow down" or strip the wad from the shot string just as the shot string exits the muzzle.

I have a SS Mono built in 1994 with the wad rings intact. Although this particular Mono is not a SLE PRO, it came from Ljutic with a .740 Bore, the forcing cone lengthened and a fix Choke .705, I don’t believe a new Ljutic comes with the wad rings anymore especially with the advent and today’s popularity of screw in chokes tubes. I am not sure but it may be possible to still order a Ljutic today with the wad rings.

Dan Orlich, Member of the ATA Hall of Famer, shot Ljutic #1 using a .695 choke, the bore was .735

Thanks everyone for the replies. My Ljutic #116X has the rings in place. I was just wondering what the term meant. Unfortunitly, it looks like I may be selling off my trap guns due to employment problems. I'll have to wait and see. I'm not experiemced enough to do it myself thou. Thanks David.
