    Anyone have an extra 12 gauge choke tool they don't need?

    Most sporting goods stores will have them hanging in the aisle next to the choke tubes.

    They tend to cost about $5. Which is what you would pay for someone to ship you one.

    They are not universal either...they are different for each mfg...

    But if you need a choke tube wrench to take a choke tube in or out....you screwed up ...and either got them in too tight / or you didn't clean and lube the barrel or the choke properly.

    Finger pressure - put a finger inside them - to get them in or out is all you need. You don't need to "crank" them down into the gun...

    If choke tubes don't run in or out without hanging up ....clean the threads in the barrel and on the choke ...I use Break Free ...and spin them in and out until they run as smooth as butter.../ and clean the choke tubes - after every range trip ...it just takes a few seconds...scrub the plastic fouling out ...lube them and put them back into the gun.

    I've seen too many guys ruin barrels by crossthreading choke tubes in a barrel ...and they didn't realize it until it was too late and the threads were stripped out....and its pretty sad. Sometimes you can have someone "chase" the threads in the barrel...and sometimes it just toast....

    If your choke has notches thenaquarter works, otherwise buy a cheap one for about $10 from a number of places
    Your best bet is to use some anti seize grease
