  1. Yesterday
  2. They where made by Teague for his Barrels when Teague converted it from fixed to multi choke.So I would expect Teague would have done the checking then
  3. One thing I always do when getting a new choke (I did it in Thursday morning when installing some teague mobil chokes i had bougt for a beretta in another make that takes mobil chokes as I didn't want to use the long extended chokes supplied on a game shoot) is to fit them and run a pencil down the choke and feel for the step at the join.
  4. had you used that full choke previously or was a it a new to you addition ? as to get lead past where choke butts up to inner edge of barrel the choke would have to be some what deformed to start with surely ? and if it was detritous in the barrel causing the choke to lift out of its normal seated position you surely would have noticed the extra effort to get the choke in before you shot it . these are made with afew thou gap/step down when fitted so you dont get any snagging on wads/pellets in normal use.
  5. Nothing yet - will update here when I hear anything. If you’re referring to what I think you are that’s lead protruding from the end following the blowout.
  6. Any news from Teague ? Have you noticed the damaged barrel on the end where the choke butts up against ? looks like it has been bumped or dropped.

    AGL today under a forbidding sky but was mild and dry. A good round with enough difficulty to be interesting but nothing horrible I started very nicely and was only 1 away after stand 8. Stand 9 I missed two rising l-r midis in front; annoying but 3 away with 3 stands to go was nice. Sadly it made me tense up badly on stand 10 battues, 5 pairs where I hit first and last pair but dropped 4 in the middle. Very cross with myself and it cost me 2nd place it turns out. 1 more silly miss on stand 11 and that was a 92, but as ever felt I’d thrown a proper score away. Anyway, hap

    I was more concerned that it would be bad for any green Clay's but I've been told it does not impact green clays badly at all. I'll not be needing the 10CED for a few months so will see how I get on come the spring

    Chamber length

    I means they are 3" and you can use anything up to that in them.

    Chamber length

    The barrels on my Miroku state 2 3/4” & 3” does this mean one is 2 3/4” and one 3”, if not why not just state larger size? Or does it mean something else?

    10 is very dark. If yours eyes are Ok with the 20 and its the neutralizing element which is an issue then look at the 18 or (much) better the 26 HD or ED type lenses. The knack is to have as 'light' a lense as you can without causing eye fatigue thus giving your eyes (really the pupils) control over the amount of light they see. A really dark lense is great to rest you eyes but that's for holidays and not shooting !! Think about the numbers - a 10 is 20% of the 52 (give or take) - is this what you what ? Will a 26 - which is 50% of a 52CHC be a better choice. Oakley do two lens

    Recently got the 3 lens outlaw X6 set. 20CN 52CHC 92CHCL Now the 52chc will likely be most days and the 92chcl is for dark woodland or super gloomy days but I'm contemplating trading the 20CN. I had got it as a full sun lens thinking the green neutralising would be helpful on bright summer days when green backgrounds can be really bright but now thinking it'll be a pain when coming up against green Clay's so maybe trade it for a 10CED.... Any thoughts?
  14. Yeah, get that, I guess I'm just used to my 525 which doesn't simply come loose until I use my key when I'm cleaning it or whatever, so it looks wierd to me when others are potentially having to tighten as they go round. If that was gonna do that randomly between stands, et voila, situations like the pictures Ant has put up. (not suggesting he didn't tighten them, just the outcome could be the same.) Doesn't even occur to me to check my chokes tightness cos they don't loosen off. Yeah, that's just maintenance though. and something I expect most do. I check and loosen and retighten afte
  15. interestingly my old 3800 has thin wall teagues , I normally use the blue silicon grease they supply, but found I had to re tighten with the key quite often on a fifty birder , so for a change gave it a thorough clean as it gets every time but this time I used red rubber grease as normally used on car brake parts, its a case of wipe on then wipe of like you do . yup it worked , none of the chokes came loose but also came out with the tapered key as they should at the next few shoots , hasnt stopped me checking them every few stands though. good luck antse7even hope vlad
  16. I clean my gun more often when I have had a good day (sometimes I have to wait a long time,) I lay it on my bench and spend some quality time with it, dismantling the ejectors and chokes, brushing off the dirt and cleaning the barrels, lubing and re-assembling. It's a labour of love. 💖
  17. That was me, a noodler! 😁, My chokes used to work loose during a shoot so I was in the habit of checking them for tightness. Since I changed guns AND got into the habit of applying grease to the threads, loose chokes have become a thing of the past - happy days.
  18. No different to looking down at your shoe-laces to see they are still tied. I also check tightness of comb and stock after every shoot, plus other screws; not by tightening further but by ensuring not coming loose. There is many a broken stock that would have been avoided by the odd stock-bolt check.
  19. Simply ensures that they have not come loose before shooting,its a good habit. Better than somebody pointing out you have a few threads showing. Its a fine line between tight and overtight. i wasn't in any way saying you shouldn't share your experience,i just believe in giving the manufacturer the chance first. If the outcome isn't satisfactory then give them both barrels!
  20. Always concerns me slightly when I see shooters tightening/fiddling with their extended chokes by hand before every stand, and I don't mean those who are changing them completely, just... Noodling with them. 😕 Might just be devil's hands and/or habit, but it's a bit disconcerting for me to see for the reasons this thread is bringing out.

    Choke cleaning... Meths or white spirit??

    A number of my guns have not had the chokes out for over 40 years 🤣🤣. I couldn't find a 'little devil' emoji. But there will never be a 'one size fits all ' answer for shotgun cleaning . I clean my gun and chokes every day that I use it , many friends never clean their guns and suffer no consequences .
  22. For what it’s worth , PTFE tape is used to take up the slack in coarse pitch threads where liquids or gases might escape . Personally I wouldn’t use it on a choke . I also don’t over-grease a choke . Any form of lubrication means that you use more torque than the thread requires dry to achieve the same effect . If your chokes are backing out use less not more !

    For info I spotted the Hangman's Stone results today under this address: https://www.cpsa.co.uk/scores/fixture/english-sporting-gunsite-sporting-clays-20201025/102268
  24. I'm sure many will disagree with this but I put a layer of the thinnest PTFE tape on my choke threads and then tighten them down. They do not work loose - I check them every so often. I remove, clean and replace them every 1,000 cartridges (generally 2 months). I work in insurance claims and speak often to forensic scientists and none have suggested that PTFE would affect the barrel or choke material. PTFE tape is - I understand - similar to greasing the chokes but with a better 'grip' to keep the chokes in. After market chokes - probably make no difference but for me (a 686E & 682 go
  25. One of the great things on a forum , is the ability to ask has anyone else had this problem, so I think Ant is doing the right thing by asking before he contacts his supplier . More than a few years back when the steering rack went pop on my out of warranty car , the main dealer said “ never seen that before Sir “ . The LR forum showed numerous cases of failure on 2008 /2009 vehicles . I ended up with a 50% ex gratia payment based on presenting the evidence ! There are many reasons Ant’s gun could have failed , ranging from ammunition , the quoted theory of choke damage but you c
  26. Thanks for sharing your view. Yes, I am in agreement my experience with Teague precision (and my dealing with Nigel even prior to that) has all been very good - I would equally agree and hold the hope of a satisfactory resolution. I am affording them every opportunity to resolve the problem, and see my (ongoing) participation in this forum entirely unrelated to that outcome. Good or bad I will share it - largely the purpose of a sharing platform. I certainly can't subscribe to the comment re: backing them into a corner - there's been none of that, nor any bad mouthing which would fr
  27. Probably get a good price for it in the West End
