First thing you need is a good choke wrench. The Remington wrench has 4 notches and a square hole in the top that fits a 3/8" socket wrench. If that fits your choke, then prepare the choke by soaking it in penatrating oil, have someone firmly hold the gun, while you apply downward pressure to the wrench, so it doesn't slip and twist it out. If it doesn't break loose, try tapping the wrench with a mallot, and try again. Maybe try some heat. If that doesn't work, don't mangle it up, take it to a gunsmith. Mark

Might try sticking the barrel in liquid wrench for a few days. If that doesnt do it. Try the hair dryer routine. Before I would use any great force. I would send it to a gunsmith, and pray.

Put some oil in a small pan and heat it up on the stove carefully w/the Bbl choke tube in oil about 4 inches of oil, set the pan on an old rug on the floor and lean the Bbl against a wll where it will not slide and spill the oil.

After letting it soak a few hours, wipe it off and try to get tube out, still stuck repeat the process.

I had this nhappen on a Ljutic Olympic rib, did the above and then put the Bbl in a protected vice, wrap the tube w/a leather belt. and then use a Pipe Wrench
and I bet the weight of the pipe wrench will take out the tube.

Do the same using the choke tube wrench that fits the tube.

Once you get it out use a bore brush mounted in a drill soaked with oil run it a few seconds , flush and clean, repeat process several times until swab comes out clean

Then clean tube threads.

Used CMD grease on tube threads and around the tube, and reinstall tube.
