The tape does work but if you let it build you may not be able to seat the tube completley. I prefer a dab of grease and snug the tube down with a choke tube wrench. Seems to keep them in place yet allows easy removal.

I've used both depend on what I found at the time, Teflon tape & Anti-Seize stick both worked well with no issues. You have to clean the tape well afterward though.

I use teflon tape on choke tubes otherwise they tend to loosen up after just a few shots. These are Beretta choke tubes that are hand-tightened. Don't use so much tape that the choke cannot be fully seated and you'll be ok.

I'll agree the Beretta Optima chokes work loose quickly in my al 391. I use the teflon tape and it helps alot.

I put a drop or two of rem oil on the tubes and check for tightness between posts.

Yes I can walk and tighten the tube at the same time. LOL

I use CMD GunGrease too. Shooting Coach here on TS.Com use to sell it. Click on the link. Maybe Coach will chime in.

I had trouble with Wright's chokes working loose. When I told the Wright's person at the Grand about it they told me to use teflon tape. It works great.

There are two different thickness's of teflon tape...Get the very thin one...I have used it for years on my Beretta 391...Never comes loose & very easy to take off..Also very clean, not messy & simple to use....Pete

I have used Cat Antisieze paste in the past very similar to Loctite copper.But the best in my opinion after long time use is Birchwood Casey Choke Lube.

If I ever buy a used gun I'll have to ask if they used teflon tape on the choke tube.
