    Removing split shotgun choke

    My Beretta 391 Xtrema has a stuck choke. Upon closer inspection it looks like the choke has split down its length (turning it almost into a roll pin and therefore even harder to remove.

    I have tried soaking the end of the barrel in a penetrant overnight to loosen any seized areas but still can't remove it. Does anyone have any other ideas on how I could try and get it out?

    Take it to a good gunsmith. They deal with this all the time.
    In future take out and clean after each use.....I know Horse has bolted

    The thin wall type chokes are good at this and stripping the keyways in my experirnce. An application of moly grease or anti seize and checking they dont loosen during fireing occasionally is a good preventative.
    Yep a smith can get them out might cost a couple of hundy though.

    if you have a spare choke key grind of one of the key lugs so there is only one lug insert it so it is before the crack so as you loosen choke it should pull the choke in to a tighter circle hopefully it then breaks free.
