I emailed Trulock and they said it will be June at the earliest before they have them.

I also hit them up at their booth during the NWTF convention in Nashville this last week and they indicated support of doing something in the future.

I apparently did contact Briley because I got an emailed response from them today. Told me there are no plans to do a production run, but they would do customer orders for $95 per extended tube.

I'd rather wait, had good experience with Trulock chokes and I would expect the price to closer to $40-$50 bucks as well.

FWIW I got around to reading the write-up in American Rifleman that showed the constrictions of the factory chokes as .008", .012" and. 045" and a 66 percent pattern from quality shells and only .012" of Modified choke. Something less than .045" should be useful as a true Full constriction.

Hello fellas, new to this board, glad I found it!

I have a sweet sixteen on order (hope to get by may, yikes)

Anyways have had the same findings with chokes as was said here. I emailed Trulock earlier this year before I ordered my gun, just got a generic response that they do not have them for the 16. Hopefully that changes, all my guns have Trulocks and are good tubes. That being said, Browning does offer a IM and light Full tube for the 16 DS. Both are steel shot approved and the IM has a .023 constriction. I'll probably get both. I'll pattern and see how they do, but for me an IM is my all round pheasant-waterfowl choke. Although I have a favorite 16 ga steel load (hits 1600+) and I want to see how the LF patterns with that load on 3 shot.

Here's to hoping George starts turning 16 DS chokes. He definitely has the best chokes for the price bar none.
