Hey all,
Anyone know what kind of chokes I can buy to supplement my mod cyl screw in that came with my NEF Pardner Pump 12 g? I'm specifically looking alternately for a rifled choke for sabot slugs. Does anyone have any experience with which brand will fit?
As a secondary question, I'm also in the market for an 18" barrel for my pardner pump (currently has a 28 inch sport barrel) for home defense. I have heard the remington 870 barrels can be modified easily to fit the NEF, which is essentially a knockoff of the remington design. Does anyone have any experience with this? If so, please advise.

Thanks.

Thanks, Oneounceload. It's embarrassing to admit that I was not able to find this.

Not saying you can't find similar chokes from others...........Browning Invector type chokes are available from a wide variety of makers

These questions come up all the time.

The correct answer (and it's not a smart aleck answer, and definatelly not intended to be) is to read the owner's manual, or ask the manufacturer. If you have not read the manual, you really should.
This information is most assuredly in the manual. If not, the manufacturer is the one to tell you how they made it.

If you don't have a manual, they can be downloaded........or you can do what I did and Google it................;)

They take Mossberg chokes

Mossberg, Winchester, Browning Invector, and H&R are all interchangeable.
Makes finding tubes for these guns really easy.

Thanks Onmilo. That's what I was wondering. The dudes at NEF were not super helpful. Yes, I did get a manual, but it only tells you how to take the barrel off the gun for cleaning the bore, and doesn't give much help other than that (what do you expect for a 135 dollar gun made in china?). In any event, it disassembles just like a Rem 870 so cleaning the action wasn't too tough. I just didn't want to blow 50+ dollars on a new choke tube only to find it didn't fit.

Is this what the manual looks like? It says right there are page one:

The barrel is equipped with an internal modified choke tube. It can be
removed or tightened with a quarter-size coin. (Be sure it is tight
before firing.) Additional choke tubes (Winchester/Browning/
Mossberg-type) can be purchased from a gun shop.
