The Rem Choke tube system is used on a number of Remington shotguns including the Model 870, Model 1100, and Model 11-87.
Remington 870 is the most popular pump-action shotgun in the world. It is used by police, military, special forces and regular people. They all use Rem 870 for different purposes, from door breaching to home defense and hunting. There are many variations of the Remington 870 that you can choose.
The Remington 870 is adored because of its dependability and affordability. While some hunting shotguns tend to cost upwards of one thousand dollars, you can get a Remington 870 Express shotgun for under $500.
Remington 870 is easy to customize for different purposes. A lot of people hunt with 870, so I receive a lot of questions about the best and must have upgrades for hunting shotgun.
You need to understand that there are different types of the game and you need to change chokes, ammunition and some upgrades for particular type of the game.
Although any Remington 870 could be used for hunting, the Remington 870 Wingmaster is the preferred shotgun for hunters. It is an American classic that has been manufactured by Remington for over 60 years and it still holds up strong against the modern day shotguns. You have the option of choosing between a 12, 20 and other gauges.
I received Real Avid Gun Tool Pro Multi-Tool as a gift for my Birthday. I always wanted to buy it, so I was very happy to receive it :)
This multi-tool is designed specially for guns. That is why Real Avid Gun Tool Pro is full of useful features and tools. Now I don’t need my regular multi-tool because I can disassemble, clean and reassemble my guns using the one tool.
I use it mostly for shotguns but Real Avid says that it will be handy for rifles, AR-15 platforms, revolvers and pistols.
When it comes to steel shots with your shotgun, you need to have a more open choke instead of a full choke. The only way you should have a full choke is if it’s specifically approved for steel shots by the manufacturer. Otherwise, go with more open choke because it will allow the steel shot to safely exit the barrel without damaging your weapon. If your choke is specifically made for lead shots then you should never use a steel shot with your shotgun either. This information can usually be found on the manufacturer’s website or at the gun dealer where you purchased your weapon. You can also use improved cylinder chokes and modified chokes as well for steel shots. You don’t want the choke to be tighter than the modified choke or else it could damage the shotgun.
Here is new infogpraphic about shotgun choke tubes. I receive many questions about chokes and decided to make an infographic which explains basics.
A shotgun choke is found inside the bore of a shotgun barrel. It basically has a series of markings that helps shape the spread of the shot that is fired as it is coming out of the barrel. The specific choke you use determines the range and accuracy of the shot. Many choke models available have identification markings on the rim of each choke tube. That way the gun owner will know what type of choke is installed in the barrel without having to take it out.

Rem 870 with 21″ Vent Ribbed Barrel with an Imp Cyl Rem Choke from Remington 870 Forum:
2 new interesting chokes from Carlson’s company which is well known for shotgun owners. This company manufactures barrels for Remington 870.
I didn’t have a chance to test them, so if you have any info, please leave a comment.
I’ve bought a rifled choke a lot of time ago. Finally, I have tested it on the range today. Rifled choke is believed to stabilize a projectile in flight giving it a spin and better accuracy.
