shotgun threading

Can anyone tell me how you would thread the inside of a shotgun barrel to fit a choke and what all you would need to do it thanks

Re: shotgun threading

I would send it to Briley and have them do it.

Re: shotgun threading

Contact Mike Orlen in MA. He can provide a slightly better cost than Briley and his work is highly respected in the industry, especially in the area of fine doubles. (You can find him on ShotgunWorld forum.)

Re: shotgun threading

It is a company. Threading a barrel for a choke is not a do-it-yourself project. You aren't dealing with a water pipe, it not done correctly it can get real ugly.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: shotgun threading

I am sure others can safely and accurately install the choke tubes it is just that they are very well known for this work. Look them up on the web and check it out. Good luck.

Re: shotgun threading

My dad threaded my shotgun for choke tubes. In short, it takes a pretty good lathe and the right bit. Its a very easy job to screw up so I would suggest paying the extra money and sending it to a gunsmith.

Re: shotgun threading

I would imagine that if your barrel has a fixed choke they would have to expand that out to a cylinder bore as well before cutting in the threads.
