Briley threading a gun

Postby bickford » Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:23 am

I have a beretta 1200 I picked up last year and it's an awesome gun. I'm thinking of sending the fixed barrel to briley and having them thread it and get 3 chokes. Anyone have experience with this? Also I know I'll get ic and modified but don't care about a full so what would be a good third choice. It's used for duck, dove, quail, and skeet

A Skeet choke would be nice to have along with the IC and Mod . There are times when the Skeet might be all you need
for decoying birds , that want to finish or give you a 15 yd fly-by . As far as the small bird upland hunting choke , depending
where you'll be hunting , it could be the one to use ?

They do good work, and their chokes are nice too. I recommend just calling in to the service department as well, their website can be cumbersome.

Save some money and have Mike Orlen or Steve Rose do it. If there is enough meat, you may be able to get Mobil choke threads. Both come highly recommended and do top notch work.

I've had a 20 and a 12 done by Briley with steel safe choke.

Works good.

Thanks for the info guys. I called briley and $219 get 3 flush chokes and threading. The guy at briley asked what I'd be using it for and said a skeet choke would be a good 3rd choice. Probably go that route

Here:

$55 to cut choke threads, 3 extended choke waterfowl set $100, $155 using Mike Orlen, do what you wish, but Briley is not the be all end all.
