Who has had choke work done on a fixed tight choked barrel? And who is considered to do the best quality of work? Am thinking of having a fixed .038 opened up to around .025. Thanks in advance.

If you want the best Tom Wilkerson I had him do my Perazzi the next weekend won over 2000 dollars and havent stoped. That gun crushes targets

Kerry Allor Did My 90-t to change the POI moved the choke, Then honed the barrel bore to the choke .032 when finished.. It will still hit a target from acrossed the street, best turkey shoot gun I have ever had.

Had a hack gunsmith from NJ do a barrel and a choke tube for me years ago . Never hit in the right place , then found out the next month he had screwed up a Perrazzi barrel for another shooter who just thru it in the garbage can at the State Shoot. Yes get someone reliable . I sold both of mine . There are too many hacks and unfortunately they come from Jersey . Oh yeah and there are 2 or 3 from PA , very close !!!! Must be the water ??

I agree with the Tom Wilkerson guys. I have a high rib 90-t with a Wilkerson barrel .749 bore and .711. .038 fixed choke and it to will hit targets hard from across the street. Singles targets are puffs of smoke. Dale

Tom Larkin did one for me last year at the Great Lakes Grand. It is an old 870 full that he opened up to an improved mod. Still crushes targets back to the 27 but is a little more forgiving at 16. Overall I shoot it much better now.

Maybe instead of getting the choke opened up I would think about having the barrel reworked for screw in chokes. That way you can find the right choke for your shooting.

Or,,, you could just learn how to shoot instead of risking a buggered up barrel.


ljutic111 , You should have done the noble thing and thrown your gun in the garbage can also. Doesn't it make you just another hack for passing it on to someone else?

Of course you didn't think about that cause it's the gun's fault. Glad I could help!

My wins won't help you any, sorry

I wouldn't mess with it because you will be out money with no real gain and you still won't be happy. You would be better off to trade it for choke tubes and be done with it.

A few years ago I had my DB-81 barrel backbored by Kerry Allor to .740 without any choke work done. I then had Jack Martin(deceased) from Fresno do the choke work. It ended up at .026 restriction and really hits the targets hard from 27 yds.

Bad, If I posted my average would you believe me? Are you are willing to take advice from everyone else , no questions asked? Ask the gun manufacturer what his average is. I don't think you really want advise, you just want others to tell you that you are doing the right thing. good luck

Johnny Boy !! I explained to the guys I sold the gun and a barrel too of the situation and they were willing to take on the gun with that in mind . Eventually they had them choke tubed . And don`t go telling me what to do or shouldn`t have done .

Johnny one thing is for certain you like the superior better than thou act on the internet. I asked a simple question about opening up a fixed choke barrel. Your flipant response was not needed or asked for. I have shot choke tubed barrels for years and have a fixed choke barrel i am thinking about having opened up some since i have zero need for .38 constriction on a sporting clays course. If you think your shooting ability has any coralation to whether a barrel is .038 or .025 you have shown your ignorance for eveyone here to see. I have been a Master class sporting shooter for the last decade and know full well how to shoot a shotgun. I certainly don't need you to advise me on how to shoot a gun. You have added ZERO to this thread about the question i posed. If you like to shoot a fixed choke at .045 i don't give a rats azz. It is simply not needed for any trap target or sporting target. And who said i was taking advise from anyone? I asked for others opinions and who had done the work. Not that hard for most to comprehend.
