In vector Plus Choke Systems

Pre 1983 BPS models and current 12 ga. BPS Buck Specials are conventionally choked. Most current BPS shotguns have barrels that are threaded to accept the Browning Invector Interchangeable Choke Tube System. You may confirm this by glancing on the right side of your barrel where the specifications are inscribed. The degree of choke is indicated on the side of the tube, and with a "notch" code on the top rim of the tube.

STANDARD INVECTOR

Pre 1993 BPS models, excluding the 12 ga. 3 1/21' magnum, are threaded to accept Standard Invector choke tubes. The 28 gauge BPS is Standard Invector.

Invector Choke Tubes arc made with tempered steel and are fully compatible with all FACTORY AMMUNITION (loaded in

INVECTOR-PLUS

All current BPS 12 and 20 gauge shotguns, except the Buck Special and Came Gun. have back-bored barrels and are threaded to accept Invcctor-Plus choke tubes only. They are not interchangeable with standard 12 gauge Invector choke tubes. A special "Plus" choke tube wrench is provided to remove and tighten these tubes.

When it becomes finger-tight, use the Invector choke tube wrench lo firmly seat

the tube.

THE INVECTOR CHOKE TUBE SHOULD BE PERIODICALLY CHECKED TO ASSURE THAT IT IS TIGHT AND FIRMLY SEATED. BEFORE CHECKING, FOLLOW THE SAFETY GUIDELINES OUTLINED ABOVE.

INVECTOR CHOKE TUBE CODE

To identify individual Invector tubes, refer to j the abbreviated indications on the side of the tube, or use the identification mark(s) located on the top rim of each tube. (See Figure 10).

INVECTOR TUBE SELECTION

To help you choose the correct choke tube for each hunting situation, all Browning Invector choke tubes are inscribed on the side with the patterns they produce with both lead and steel shot. Each Invector tube also lias notches in the top rim of the tube.

These notches are a code to allow you to de-

termine the choke designation while the tube is installed. Rim notches refer specifically to lead shot. You will need to use the chart below to cross-reference from lead to steel, and determine the appropriate tubes for your ammunition and hunting/shooting situation.

ON GAME GUN MODELS, THE RIFLED CHOKE TUBE TIGHTENS WITH USE. THE RIFLED CHOKE TUBE SHOULD BE REMOVED AND CLEANED AFTER FIRING EVERY 15-20 SHOTS TO AVOID EXCESS TIGHTENING AND TUBE REMOVAL PROBLEMS.
