So I lost my invector choke wrench...

Postby gatorsnagger » Mon Oct 07, 2013 8:12 am

Lost my invector plus choke wrench and probably wont have enough time to find a new one before the next weekend. I tried to put a quarter in the end and twist it with a pliers but I'm pretty much stripping the edge of the choke at that rate. Anyone have any good ideas on how to change chokes if needed?

Quarter is soft, exactly how tight is it? A wrench may be a wasted effort at this point, it may be stuck.

Shot it as is and then..........
find the time to get a wrench.

I NEVER have chokes get stuck................
but I also grease them when I put a new one in after cleaning the barrel.

If a quarter and a wrench is stripping your choke, that sucker is stuck. Either rusted in or swollen. Shoot it as is and then take it to a gunsmith.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

Get the proper wrench before doing anything. You will need it anyway.

2-dayed one from midwayUSA to my house, so I could get it before the weekend. That hurt the wallet! There goes that 6-pack of new dekes I was looking at.
