I am wondering if anyone has had a problem with the patternmaster chokes shooting out of the barrel. The reason I ask is that i just had mine do it today and then 15min later my cousins did the samething and messed up both barrels . both were the browning invector plus chokes. both chokes were brand new this week.

We were both shooting the winchester Xperts 3.5" BB 1625 FPS.

Found one of the chokes in the field it looked like the wads were hitting the bottom edge and bent it in.

Sounds like you had browning invector chokes in guns that need the invector plus tubes. Check the length of the tubes against your factory tubes.

just because they are labeled invector plus does not make them that. COMPARE them to your factory choke. Odds are they are packaged wrong or someone sold you the wrong chokes, or...... your guns are choked for invector and not invector plus???????????

Well I am Shooting SX2 and the other gun was a Gold hunter. Both are Invector Plus Chokes. The Choke looked right and bought them straight from Patternmaster. The Local gun smith has both guns and the messed up choke at the moment so cant compare.

thanks for the insight guys

i bought a long range invector plus patternmaster and it flat out did not fit in my sx2, but when i exchanged it for an extended, it fit just fine. best bet is to take a ton of pictures, and call patternmaster directly to resolve the issue.

Had the same thing happen with one of my favorite chokes for my ten gauge. I have bought a few trulock chokes for my 12 gauge and done well with them. Blew the choke out first shot with my ten. Figured I didn't tighten enough and assumed it was my fault. Bought another one with less constriction. Same thing happened after using a wrench to tighten it. Called and complained and was compensated and have had no problems at all.

I visited the Patternmaster booth at Scheel's a couple of weeks ago. The guy told me to use plummer's tape on the threads when I put the choke tube into my gun. That should keep it tight.

just heard from Patternmaster ane they are replacing the barrels . They where really good to deal with. It came down to a incorrectly packaged chokes. Honest Mistake.
Good on them for taking care of it. Although that mistake could have been serious, that is not impressive.
