I've owned both and have no preference. Anyone who can tell you that one works better than the other is only promoting the product they happen to be using. The lightweight sets are far more popular these days, especially in a heavy gun like the K80. It all depends on how heavy you want the gun. I think you can probably get the work done faster at Kolar than Briley but that could have changed too. Some will argue that Briley stands behind their product better than Kolar but I have always had good dealings with them and have no complaints. If you don't want choke tubes in your skeet tubes, Kolar offers a set with fixed chokes that works well and is a little less money. Few shooters tend to change their chokes anyway so it often is a good choice.
Pat, I'm interested in the answer to Big Bopper's question regarding fitting to the specific set of barrels. I have 2 30" o/u barrels for my k80s, one with fixed choke (f/im) and one with choke tubes. Will your ultralights work in either one of my barrels? Does it require Briley to fit them?
Thanks for the info and let me know how much you're asking for them. You can email me. Drop the XX. Jim
I prefer KOLAR tubes, had a friend of mine just shoot his Briley 28GA tubes out the end of his K80 barrel the seperation occured at the chamber. This is not the first time that this has occured with Briley tubes.
Both companies offer good products and stand behind them. I would have went with Brileys but the wait time last year was 9-10 weeks. I got my Kolars in 3.5 weeks. I'm not a fan of the new Revolution tubes and the Briley Draw Locks were a flop. If I were buying Briley tubes, I would get the old style Ultra-Lites.
