I'm supposeing it can and is done but how easily can a cylinder choke be threaded for a choke tube namely the win-choke.
reason for the inquiry is I just bought a Stevens md 320 (I know made in PRC but dual slide bars and great trigger) that I would really like to have threaded for a modified choke. is this something a fella with machine shop and tool makeing experience could do?

For a one-time job, you would be money ahead just to send the barrel to Carlson's and have it done correctly.

$125 gets it properly threaded, three choke tubes of your choice, and two choke wrenches.

The proper tooling to do it yourself will cost you about $3 bills.

Greetings
Good advice from rcmodel. I purchased the tooling some years back because of wanting to run Round Ball tests through varias chokes. It was worth it to me as later I did several more 12 bores in the family. That would be the only way to break even.

Contact Mike Orlen or Steve Rose, cheaper and better than Carlson's. Last one I had Steve do was less than $80 with return shipping. Rose Action Sports

I second the Mike Orlen recommendation. I've used him in the past, and he does great work. :)

Mike Orlen and Briley's are the only two I have personally used and will vouch for, 100%. Mike is far less expensive, but he doesn't have the tooling for everything like Briley's does.
