I own one of these shotguns and absolutely love it! It is light and has eaten every type of ammo I have fed it without a hiccup. It is very reliable (not to mention fast). Does anyone make aftermarket barrels (capable of accepting choke tubes) for this gun? I would like to hunt with it but the barrel is too thin to thread it for tubes and the open choke is very limiting.

A gunsmith/friend of mine shoots one of these in action events. He put a sleeve on the outside of the muzzle and then hogged it out and threaded it for tubes. It works great but it does have that thin sleeve wrapped around the muzzle.

Brownells sells a Screw-In Choke Adapter thats fits Cat's description. You turn the last inch of the barrel to an uniform diameter and solder it on. It is pre-threaded to accept Win-Choke thread choke tubes. It is offered in four different internal diameters to accommodate different barrels, so I won't quote part numbers. You can find it on page 75 of Catalog #51. The retail price is $21.85 (US).
