Loosening a choke tube

I have a remington 870 shot gun with original choke tube that has been in for 10-12 years. I have just got a carlson choke tube for coyotes and foxes and can get the old one out. Iv tried kroil but it wont budge. And advice?

How long did you let the Kroil sit?

Sometimes it has to soak for days until it creeps into the threads.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

+1 as above. If it dont work by spraying it in you may have to put some in a cup and put end of barrel down in to let it soak.
If that dont work take an actual choke tube wrench and stick in chok and give a couple soft taps on wrench with a hammer. Or try some heat from a heat gun.

Disclaimer: i am not an actual smith. Use info at own discretion. Also use extreme caution as the end of those barrels are pretty thin
