choked barrels

Ive been searching for reasonably priced barrels for my Winchester Model 50....

Good luck lol...now even the gin prices are climbing...used to be fairly easy to snag a clean one under $300...


Seems the IC barrels are 26"... Mod barrels are 28" and full is 30"....


Are they just chopping 2" to get the choke???


If so...I can find full choked barrels...

The others are hard to find and are $200+ when you do usually....


Just wondering...looking for options...


Snagged one on eBay...just got it today....I didnt look at the pics good..I knew it had some light rust..I want it for grouse so I dont care about that...its 26" and mod is stamped out and its marked Imp-cyl...doubt it was factory...might pattern it later today and see how it shoots...

I'd love screw in chokes....I love the gun and they shoulder and point very natural for me...but kind of limited with a 30" full...shot plenty of grouse and pheasant with spreader loads but even those are limited to low brass and real fi e shot..and expensive to get to the house...

Re: choked barrels

Why can't you have a smith tap it for screw in chokes?

Re: choked barrels

Mauser,

http://www.americhoke.com/#screw

This guy says minimum outside dia. of 12 ga. to take a win-choke is .850. If yours meets or exceeds that, it should be possible. If not, see how far back it would have to be chopped to get the .850...

Re: choked barrels

Thanx!!


Confirms the issue...OD isn't .850" until like 8"...


Hit the bores while I was playing...my "new to me" modified turned IC barrel mics at .720...my 30" full mics at .68 or so..

Didn't get to test the new barrel yet....hopefully its good for bird shooting...

Re: choked barrels

Quick look online and if my bore is normal...and it should be as it was made in the 50s... .720 or so is right on to actually be IC...

So....I should be in business!

Re: choked barrels

Rose action sports In Kentucky will tap the barrel for chokes...125$ includes 3 chokes and return shipping turn around about 2 weeks. They have chokes for thin barrels also. Briley will also do it but more $$$
