Choke Identification

Postby mote1977 » Tue Jul 19, 2016 7:51 pm

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I'm just getting back into waterfowl hunting after a long break. I was hoping someone could identify the maker of a choke for me. I bought it probably 20 yrs ago for my Rem. 11-87 and it's been in storage most of the time. I know I purchased it to use for duck hunting at the time. It doesn't have any markings on it at all. At first I thought maybe a pattern master but all the ones I see have markings. It's laying next to a factory Rem choke for comparison. It also has fluting inside you can see in the second pic.

I've always just shot what came with the gun and am clueless about aftermarket chokes, but welcome to the forum!

looks like a strangler choke tube

check to make sure not turkey constriction,in which case too tight for steel

You're right , it's a Strangler. Now that I hear the name I remember it. It's definitely not a turkey choke, I remember buying it specifically for goose hunting. Thanks for the help.

Good chokes

I thought all this aftermarket stuff was a gimmick,I was wrong

There is a learning curve in that they are usually less forgiving,but it is either a solid kill or miss from my experience

Bought a few chokes for my shotgun and found that the factory full is pretty much the same as the expensive Briley Extreme long range I bought and swore by until I patterned and could not tell which was which on paper.
Shoot your gun a lot and you start shooting instinctive. That's what helps more than any fancy chokes.
Of course the guys with the patternmasters will disagree.

They say these fancy chokes shorten the shot string and puts more pellets on target at once. That's theory and I can't prove or disprove it. Sounds good tho.

I've been using a Terrortube for the last 6-7 years, and love it!!!!!! I don't use a dog, and finishing off a cripple swimming off at 40-50 yds is no longer an iffy/shell wasting proposition.
