Kinda like putting deer whistles on a Jag XKE.....might be functional but doesn't look right.
I have 2 skb autos with a Full array of Bryley Choke tubes. I think the biggest advantage of the Poly choke is for the Hunter. My Ithaca model 37 is Very Light weight so isn't a chore to carry in the woods all day. The poly choke gives it a Huge amount of vesatilety. Also I am appreciating the amount of felt recoil reduction I am getting from the Venting. Yea it will be louder for sure. but everything can't be perfect. I think just for Kicks and Giggles it will be fun to also use it for all the wingshooting Games. It might even surprise you even at those.
I suspect that in years gone by, damaged muzzles were salvaged with these handy devices, and they allowed one to have the exact barrel length desired without losing or post forming chokes. Poly Choke also made vent ribs that could be fitted to plain barrels. Good stuff!
Yep For Sure. If I ever see one of those little 20 gauge PolyChoked Jewels In a gun show it Will be going home with Me!!!!
Polychoke was still in business until recently. I believe they mades versions that would screw into several standard choke tube threaded barrels. For those that like the ability to quick change construction in the field. It could also be had with and without the vents just like the original.
Mine on my Ithaca M37 has a slug setting. Like you I Love em.
I know folk don't like the looks and I understand that even if I don't agree with the sentiment. For me, the look speaks to versatility and individuality as well as a sense of purposefulness.
From a user's point of view - they're right up there with Pachmayr Compac grips, white-line butt pads among others as a *standard* upgrade for me.
.....for five stand/sporting clays allows almost instant choke changes. sorry to see the latest owner in wisconsin go out of business....
Ahhhh.... Another savvy buyer capitalizing on the perceived loss-of-value for those muzzle-warts.
Not unlike the S&W lock-hole in cost slashing except that there's an actual shooter benefit to the shotguns' pro-tube-erances.
And there's an interesting contrast 'twixt a view such as yours and mine.
I find the *dampening* effect at the starting, intermediary and stopping point of a swing more pleasing with the muzzle devices. I tend to aim empty-muzzled or otherwise lightly barreled guns a bit more erratically.
Use longer barrels and that issue goes away.
Nah. Not gonna do that.
The *problem* is already gone without the hassle of longer barrels, choke tools or thread maintenance and with the wonderful versatility and effect of the devices.
