    He opened the forcing cone on my A5 to shoot steel.unfortunatly not enough meat at the muzzle for chokes
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    This is not going to help,Dave Da Silva was my truck fixer when I was at Awakeri(has a "couple" of silver Ferns)used to take barrels to Oz in checked baggage when he went to visit inlaws,pick them up on the way home.Don't think that's going to happen these days

    Thinking about buying reamer and tap and doing it myself.
    Failing that will take barrels with me to US and get done over there next time I'm over

    Na its the Mrs 26" skeet gun.
    Needs multi choke for sporting as its a true skeet pattern and she struggles with any real distance. Need to be able to fit IC and LM when required.
    I generally shoot briley skeet chokes for sporting in my gun and they are quite a bit tighter than hers.
    Some targets arnt even worth her shooting at as too far away. Does nothing for the confidence.

    Greg is a specialist shottie smith, though he does everything else as well.
