A+++++++++++++++ for Mike Orlen.
I have a Franchi 48 AL which had a"cyl" fixed choke barrel. I love this shotgun but beyond 25 yds I was out of luck. Since there aren't many quail left in my area and very few rabbits, my favorite has been sitting in the gun cabinet for years.
Based on the recommendations of folks on this site, I sent it to Mike Orlen last Wednesday. Today, 9 days later I received my barrel and 3 new screw in chokes for $125 which included shipping both ways and the barrel looks beautiful.
If you are considering this work on an older fixed choke barrel, google Mike Orlen for a telephone number and give him a call. He was great to talk to on the phone and his service was superb
