Had a look at a Perazzi MX-8 this evening. 30" bbls, non-selective trigger. Barrels have been ported and thin wall chokes installed. The 'problem' is that there are only the chokes currently in the barrels - no others. I removed the chokes to see if there were any identifying marks. Other than the choking, there was nothing to indicate who's choke they were. Any recommendations on how to go about IDing these chokes. The current owner is says he has looked high and low to fine any paperwork that may have accompanied the choke work (gun belonged to his father who is now deceased), but came up with nothing.

I believe that Briley Thin Walls have Briley's name on them as well as the bore diameter and a 'serial number' of sorts. Nothing of the sort on these chokes.

BTW, the chokes in question, or should I say included with this gun, are of the 'square, flat thread variety.' Not sure that this is an any way evidence of the manufacturer,

They sound like Brileys to me. I have some older Briley thinwalls with no markings. I don't know of anyone else who made thinwall chokes a few years back.

I'll be in Houston on Friday. Plan on stopping and talking to the folks at Briley. Hoping maybe that they can cross-reference using the ser # off the gun. Also want to see in person one of the Blaser F-3s.

I have the same problem with an 1100. The barrel was backbored to .730 the rechoked with a thinwall. The only markings are "Not for Steel Shot" and L.F.
I measured it every way possible, then called Briley. They said that it was probably an old Type A which is no longer in production, and any replacements would have to be custom made. I didn't ask the price, figured I would just find another barrel.

My old MX3 had briley S type thin wall when I had my superposed done years later the barrels were to close togeather so they had to put in S type thin walls and they were interchangeable with both gun so they make them still Jon

Briley will ID chokes - at least as to what fits - if you take one to them. They will not offer to check their records for a particular gun. Found this out when I wanted to find out what was in my (gasp!) skeet/clays gun. Had to send them four chokes; they ID'd them as soon as they saw them.
