My recommendation would depend on how you use the shotgun. If you have a duck gun that wears a Modified tube all year long, use anti-seize. If you are changing tubes constantly on a sporting clays course, I might even consider using oil. Grease splits the difference. In any case you should remove, clean and relube your choke tubes once or twice a year.
I just use the same grease that I use for my breach plug in my muzzleloader.
Somebody tell me if this is a bad idea. I figured it was close to the same stuff and saw no need to have 2 different types.
If you are worried about clean up of standard anti seize, the food grade anti seize cleans up well.
Can't recount all the stuck choke tubes that were brought to me for removal over the years when I was gunsmithing..
Been shooting on Mars and Venus again, eh?
Slip 2000 makes some good products.
I'm not picky and have no regrets - yet.
Make rust head south of the border with Spanish Jim's!"
If you shoot a lot, you should be cleaning your gun after every range trip; clean your chokes at the same time as well as the threads inside the barrel. It's amazing how much gunk from powder can get in between the wall and the tube
Good advice. I should have made it clearer that cleaning the tube once a year is the minimum for guns that are not shot often.
Just pick out a average size can or tube of gun oil and then figure it as the price per gallon, it's insane. No oil is that good to demand such $$$$$$
Every gun I own gets it where grease is called for
I want to thank everyone for sharing your thoughts and advice with me. Very helpful as always!
