I have recently purchased a Browning BPS, which I am emmensly happy with. I am currently using it for predominantly sporting clays, duck shooting and pheasant shooting.

I am in the process of 'pimping' it up a little to make it suit me better, looking at installing a hi viz sight and limbsaver (more to extend the bitte than anything else).

One of the other things I am considering is the benefits of purchasing an aftermarket extended choke (the one that extends out from the barrell a little).

Cna anyone offer me some guidance as to whether or not this improves performance, any particular brand and what type of choke to get (given what I am using it for and that I have to be able to use lead and steel).

For all of your activities, you'll probably want more than one constriction. Briley, Rhino, Seminole, among many others, all make excellent aftermarket chokes

As for the hi-viz sight, IMO I would not use it for targets that are moving, whether clay or feathered - you want to focus on the target, not the sight, or you'll miss behind.

with such a fine gun I'd stick with original parts from the manufacturer. They know their product best.
Have a nice day,

In my Brownings, I primarily use Browning's Midas Grade extended chokes / they also make a Diana grade - but there isn't anything wrong with Briley chokes either.

Does it improve performance - I doubt it.

For all my guns, in terms of chokes, I carry a:

One of the great bargains in extended choke tubes of excellent quality is Angleport. They will sell you 5 extended chokes of your choosing for $100.00 plus shipping. The quality is as good as anything you will buy from anyone. 5 similar chokes from Briley will cost you twice that.


I have 3 complete sets of Angleport extended chokes and couldn't be more pleased.
