    I have been using a small amount of that CRC silver anti seize mechanics use for many years (available from super cheap autos) for around $16. It’s outstanding and my guns get wet often and I only pullout tubes occasionally

    Anti-seize.

    I once bought a Fabarm o/u that had the choke tubes stuck tight because they were never removed . Perserverence , diesel and lots of bad language got them free eventually . Lucky it was cheap because I probably had 20 hours in it by the time I got the tubes free.....
    Be more involved and less impressed.

    I used some copper anti sieze after i heard several horror stories about badly rusted in chokes.
    Lasted extremely well and works brilliantly.
    Gives it a little bit of resistance to the threads so they d9nt come loose even if done up finger tight

    TIP.
    If you see a horizontal drilling rig on the side of the footpath (they usually have Ditch Witch on the side) drilling in a new cable/ pipe go and ask them for a squirt. These machines use that copper anti seize on all their drill joints.
    Put it in a paper cup / or a plastic bottle, a bit will last you for years, I use it on my chokes and any wear points such as the hinge or top levers. I put it on my bolt guides, any where!
    I got a small screw jar ( the plastic kind) full of it about 15 yrs ago..... its still pretty full.

    Please use any brand choke grease, or even a small amount of standard grease. The amount of guns we get back with “stuck chokes” that are simply down to the the owner being lazy and not taking them out and cleaning them and relubing/greasing. Moisture can get in and under and rust them into place. I shoot with a mate who was proud to say the other day he hasn’t taken his chokes out for 18 months, even though we shoot in the rain etc. Guess whose gun is at the gun smiths in an attempt to get the chokes out.

    I just bought some Beretta white choke grease from Reloaders, pretty cheap. Haven't used it yet but looks good. I can chime in tomorrow after I use it if you want?

    Cheers

    Was looking through my supply of oils, lubes and greases. I've got 3in1 oil, hoppes No9, crc556, breakaway, blue grease, white lithium grease, lanolin grease and some no name brand of oil slightly finer than 3in1.
