custom choke work

Postby wpevey » Sat Jul 06, 2013 11:15 pm

I just got a couple original Ithica 10ga autos. I have one w/ a 26" barrel that I'd like to get worked so It will take interchageable chokes. I know briley's and angle port both do it but was woundering if anyone has any recomendations of who would be good to use. I dont want to send the gun to just anyone, too easy to ruin it. Thanks.

Carlson also does this work and their choke tubes are high quality.

I have an addition question:
Who would have the Browning taps for Browning tubes, Hastings taps for Hastings tubes etc?
My Bps 10 and 28 ga had new tubes put in shortened barrels and they are not Browning threads but proprietory Briley threads and tubes by Briley.

I am sure Mike Orlen and Steve Rose both have the Browning Invector tap. I don't know anyone who has said they have the Hasting's choke tap.

You might call Simmons in Olathe Ks, they do great work and have been in the custom gun business for years
If you're there for the limit, you're there for the wrong reason

Bill ,

If I'm not mistaken Briley makes all Browning chokes but , there are several outfits that can cut the treads .
Both invector and invector plus

Lost, I have them written down at work and I won't be there again until Sunday night.

Feedback from Rose Action for those who are interested:

Thanks for contacting me.


I can thread for Rem-Choke. Win-Choke (same as Browning Invector) and Tru-Choke (same as the original Hastings tube). The later Hasting 2 tube was a proprietary tube and as far as I know no one outside of Hastings was threading barrel for these tubes. See information below detailing minimum barrel dimensions.


The price for cutting to length, bead replacement on the barrel, and choke tube threading (without new tubes) starts at $95 per barrel (return shipping included in the price). If you want a pedestal base with the bead add $40 per barrel Turn time is generally 14 days or less, however I will be closed August 20-25 which will add a week or so to the turn time.


To accept Rem-Choke or Win-Choke (same as the Browning Invector tubes) threading the outside diameter of the barrel at the spot it is cut off (the new muzzle) must .845” or larger. If the diameter is between .825” to .844” I can thread it for Tru-Choke tubes.


Please send your barrel, a check or money order for the total, a description of the work to be done and return shipping instructions to:


Rose Action Sports
1200 Beeker Rd
Pembroke, KY 42266


Please ship via US Mail or UPS only. FedEx service in this area is unreliable and too often results in returned packages.


If you need more info please call 270-348-3262 or email anytime.
