Default Interchangeable chokes?



Advertise Here

I was wondering if the chokes for a Mossberg 835 would be ok to use in a Remington 870 or are they specifically made for each gun? I have a full set of chokes for the Mossberg but the 3 dot sight on it is way out of whack and I want to use the 870 for deer hunting instead.

Chokes are specific to gun make and model so the answer is no they won't interchange. What length barrel and choke are on the 870 now? Slugs work well with most standard setups which I assume your using for deer..

Some chokes are interchangeable between some shotguns, someone had a list in one or more of the threads around here but can't remember details.
Charles Daly chokes for the pump and semi-auto shotguns will fit Remington pump and semi-auto shotguns, Mossberg chokes of the 500 persuasion will fit Winchester Win-Choke shotguns.
There are several that will interchange but I can't remember all of them.
I have a Charles Daly shotgun that I buy Rem Chokes for it and they work perfectly.

There are only 2-4 different thread patterns used on shotgun choke tubes. I believe a vast majority are the same threads used on Winchesters, Browning, and Mossbergs. Remington has the more uncommon threads.

Don't know the barrel length offhand but its a turkey gun so it has a longer barrel. I have IC and Turkey Extra Full chokes for it but have heard that a full choke is what I want to used for a non-rifled barrel and the rifled slugs to give it the best accuracy.

Is that right?

Some manufacturer's chokes WILL interchange with other manufacturer's shotguns, you just have to know who will fit who. Here's a link to a chart that will tell the interchangeability of probably every shotgun manufacturer available.

I agree. I put a screw-in Poly-Choke on my Remington 11-87 and don't have to worry about keeping up with choke tubes and having the right one during a defensive situation. Plus you have Extra open and Extra full settings for those situations that call for them as well as all those between.

Just my opinion.

Most are brand specific. If you have a Weatherby or SKB shotgun they can use the same chokes interchangable as they are threaded the same. At least that was the case when Weatherbys were made in Japan by SKB. Some Browning and Miruko shotguns have the same arrangement as Weatherby and SKB did.
