I've searched the forums here, and on a couple other sites, but can't find any info on the adjustable Poly-Choke.I just bought my first shotgun, a Remington Express 3" 12ga, and would like to get some feedback on this Poly-Choke before buying any other chokes for the gun.Poly-Choke WebsiteI asked this question on another forum, and so far have got nothing but "Its ugly" comments. I'm not one for making things 'pretty'. As long as it functions as it should, it's well-made & reliable, and it doesn't get in the way, I like it.If you have any experience with the Poly-Choke - Good, or Bad - please let me know. I'm pretty much just starting to get into hunting, and have had not one hand-me-down. So I can't be just throwing my money at something that might work.Thanks in advance.

I have a couple of customers that have them and love em especialy in sporting clays cause they can make changes without changing the chokes out . :harhar1[1]:

I don't know anything about it but it looks interesting. I'll be interested in seeing what anyone has to say about it.

I found the following review by simply googling "Poly-Choke Review"http://www.shotgunwo...s_polychoke.htmThe person that tested the device speaks very highly of it...but he received it for free, and may have had a motive ($$$) in giving it such a good review.

I read the reviews on Cabelas...according to those, the people's that worked liked them, and others not so much.

I have an old western field pump that has one on it and I don't care for it. It's nice to have so much versatility instantly available but that big bulge at the end of the barrel distracts me and in turn my shooting suffers, especialy when pass shooting birds like dove, pigeons, and crow.
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.

I have one on my first shotgun I got in the early 70's. It came stock on the weapon. I still have the gun today. I wish they came stock on the new shotguns. You have to jump through hoops to fiddle with inserts and extra chokes nowadays, but I guess that's how manufacturers make extra money - Selling items as accessories that use to be stock items.I hunted everything from pheasant , dove and quail, to waterfowl. It is a great gun.db
