One thing to note to people unfamiliar with chokes is the term "notches" especially in regards to this picture. There are 4 notches in both tubes, they are at 12 o'clock, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. These are are for the choke wrench.
thanks! you are absolutely right, i didn't even notice they were there when i posted the pic.One thing to note to people unfamiliar with chokes is the term "notches" especially in regards to this picture.

However please note that the tube on the left has additional notch marks on the left side of it, it looks like 4 of them. These indicate degree of restriction, the more notch marks the more constricted the choke is. Often 4 notches indicates "full" but will depend on manufacturer. I don't see any on the tube on the right so this would be "cylinder" I hope this helps.
I'll try and make some, and bring my bug spray .Adam I posted some of the trap shoots. I still dont know why we dont have a email system to send to our 800+ members to let them know WTF is going on. Maybe if we statred doing that we would have more than the same 10 guys shooting????
Thanks!Many Trapezoids will be happy to let you try out thier toys....once you get a feel for a "propper fit", this will work well for you.
One of our better up-and-coming shooters "got good" with an older, exposoed-hammer single shot (Sears?) and then, when he had more of a clue as to what would work, moved up the ladder a bit.
A large price is a waste of money if the gun doesn't fit. Better to drop less on the gun, and use the money saved for practice ammo.
Also, don't beaffraid to ask for suggestions - it's better to learn "right" than to have to unlearn.
Keep checking back - there willbe some winter shoots posted here, (Southborough Rod & Gun is having a New Year's Day Hangover Blast at noon, Jan 1 www.srgclub.com) and when the weather improves, more will crop up.
Welcome to Trap!
Do this first before anything else. Take a piece of paper and make a target on it. At 13-15 yards shoot at the target. Change paper. change chokes and do it again. I usually do 2 different shots with each choke just to make sure. This will let you know your POI (point of Impact) vs your POA (point of aim). Then you can start playing.You cant really tell a gun fits until you patern it.........
