invector chokes are easy to find on ebay or gb. my experience is, they tend to be tighter than what they are marked.


Ok thanks!

Congrats, those are great guns! Somebody already added a recoil pad for you.


Yes it has a Decelerator pad on it. Seems like a good one.

Anyone have suggestions for where I can buy Invector or compatible tubes?


I have been using the Trulock extended Precision Hunter chokes in my Citori 16 for several years and really like them. Great patterns. I like the Skeet 2 the best for hunting wild pheasants, sharptails, chukar, etc, but I often run IC under Modified.

Very nice, I have the same gun and it shoots well. No issues so far after a few years of use. I have Briley extended chokes in mine and they seem to work well for me. Enjoy the gun!

Thanks for the info on the Trulocks - I will check them out

Thanks, and good to hear your gun shoots well with no issues.

I went out on my first hunting outing earlier this week with the new Citori. Below are the results - two good opportunities and two wild roosters in the bag. This gun handles and shoots fantastic - I love it!

Looks like the gun is working for you, well done. Second the Trulocks advice, have a bunch for my Citori Upland and they work great. I consider Colonials on even par with Trulocks.

IMO; the Browning chokes are "unique" when comparing to common aftermarket internal dimensions but work OK when you pattern them and understand what they actually do. FWIW, the 16ga Invector Cyl choke is actually what I consider a blunderbuss constriction, if I remember correctly in the .680 area that works very well in the 10-20y range.
