that full choke patterns great no need for aftermarket chokes.

Other than fit and finish, they leave nothing to be desired. Best patterns shooting steel with the factory chokes. Save your money and stick with them. An extended aftermarket will not make that much diff. The only thing I do not like on these is the latest models come with a ported barrel which I would try to avoid if possible. Barrels for these can be found really easy and cheap. So replacing your ported barrel with a non ported one would be easy to do. Pre fit Limbsavers are available for these, both wood and synthetic stocks. Money well spent for a effective add on.
