Browning Invector DS Choke Tube System
Check out the newest shotgun choke-tube system from Browning.
"It Centers the choke tube in the barrel, is that important? Beats me but I'll buy it." How important is it to have the shot leave the barrel in the same direction the gun is pointing? I would ask, "Who is this imbesile," but I don't know how to spell it.
OVER inventing the choke, you say? Maybe?
I always like my shot to leave the barrel the same direction it is pointing! LOL
New alibi for my P.P. shooting: "Hey, my choke tube must not be concentric!"
Makes sense in theory but this was obviously recorded at a range; would have been nice to see some quick patterns to support claims.
Another brass ring to grab at.
I'm not buyin these extended choke tubes because of the longer choke area, and thus better performance The top shots at the club I have talked to on this very issue tell me it is more hype than fact. The one guy told me that he had a several boxes of extended tubes he'd sell me cheap. Said he could have bought a new car with the money he spent on special tubes. Now can one be made to last longer? Maybe so. When the guy said "I don't know, but what the heck I'd buy one" I'm with RES1956 on this one. My problem with the extended tubes on my O/U for hunting is I would get a lengthy piece of weed stuck between the tubes.
What I do believe in though for tighter patterns is the Flite Master wad that Federal puts in their Prairie Storm shells, or the little metal protrusions that Carlson, I believe, uses in one of their choke tube designs, that seperates the wad cup from the shot BEFORE it leaves the muzzle. And if you have one of them you should NOT shoot the Prairie Storm loads through it. But they both do the same thing.
Looks good to me.
I have used shotguns with chokes and without I would give this one a try to see the pattern myself but not sure if I would use for anything but shooting contests http://executivegunrunners.com
