Choke tube issues

Recommended Posts

Nitebiter

My choke tube is COMPLETELY rusted in.. just wondering if anybody else has had the same problem and knows of any special tricks or something to get it out short of taking it to a gunsmith and cutting it off.
Thanks in advance for the help!

when you get it out, allways put a little neverseize on the threads.

I have not, although i did stuff the end of the barrel with a paper towel yesterday and sprayed about half a can of WD-40 down it and just let it run through into a bowl and kept puttin it through to slow soak through the paper towel and it didnt produce.. id rather not have to take it to a gunsmith!!

I had the same problem last year. I took it to Scheels in St Cloud. They were able to pound it out for me. Now I use choke tube lube all the time. If you use the lube make sure to check it from time to time. They will get loose on there own.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
