My new SearsRoebuck auto loaader

So how do you like my new to me 12g auto loader I traded a set of truck air bags and 50 bucks for it. It seems to shoot good. Any one know any thing about the adjustable choke on it?

it looks like a Standard Poly-Choke, or the Sears version of one.

Sounds like you may have a Ted Williams 300, made by Winchester; same as a Winchester 1400.

To set the choke correctly, screw it all the way down. It should stop just beyond Full; then back it off to what setting you want. You should feel clicks. It doesn't have all the settings printed on it. The click between IC and MOd would be Skeet 2; The click inbetween Mod and Full would be Improved Modified. It can be also unscrewed all the way off for cleaning.

Good guns. I had a TW 200 (Winchester 1200) the pump version. I shot that gun really well. Grandson inlaw has it now.

looks like a good shot gun but I think you should swap that filter on the fish tank out for a canister.

Sears used an adjustable choke made by Lyman. It is a very good device.

ebutler462,
Do you recall, does the Lyman have the same basic instruction: Tighten all the way and first click back is full?
