Actually you HAVE to have a choke tube installed when shooting slugs-just make sure it's a cylinder or improved cylinder. If you shoot a shotgun without ANY tube installed, it'll clog up the threads in the least, and damage the threads at the worst.

Indeed. I prefer shooting slugs and buckshot through my cylinder bore barrel [18.5" HD]. I only have a modified choke on my hunting barrel and that wouldnt work too well.

S.S.

Think mossberg needs to make this easier for people to figure out on their website.
I'm not surprised about the price increase, but I love my Mossberg, so it's still worth it in my opinion. My local gun shop is very helpful, and they are the ones who gave me the phone number. I also recomend a 2x full choke for turkey hunting or skeet shooting.

Default cool , thanks.

I guess I'll order it from mossberg. The local gun shop said they could tap the barrel and thread it but it probably wouldn't be very accurate with the short barrel. A waste in their mind. Thanks and happy shooting.

I assume you're talking about shooting aerial clay pigeons. If you was actually shooting the organized game of skeet, you'd want a double or semiauto with an open choke.

That assumes you have a threaded barrel that takes choke tubes. If you do, then yes, you want a tube installed that has no choke to protect your threads or you want to use a slug barrel. You do not want a choke installed when shooting slugs.

I meant clay pigeons. And I don't really care about shooting slugs. Won't be hunting game big enough for that ever. I just want a shotgun with a choke that can reach game up to 35-40 yards. Looking at a remington 870 they have at the shop too. It has a modified choke on it. Under $300.

I stand corrected, you are right. I'd use my H&R Autoloader for skeet.
