Clean Your Choke Tube

Safety Tip for Hunters and Sportsmen #3

When cleaning your shotgun after a day afield, remove and clean the choke tube and choke area of the barrel as soon as possible upon returning.

The carbon buildup can harden surprisingly quickly and cause the choke tube to seize permanently in the barrel.

 

Please note: When considering your choice in Gunsmiths, please remember: all Certified Gunsmiths MUST be licensed by the chief Firearms officer of the province.

To ensure you have access to your favourite guns, please do not wait until the last minute to contact a licensed Gunsmith.

The closer to hunting season, the busier they will become. Although their skills seem like magic, they require time to perform their craft. Just like the hunting trip itself, plan well ahead of your trip afield to have your guns serviced.

Not all firearms are repairable. This not a limitation of the gunsmith, older firearms with tin mechanisms were designed to have “throw-away” and replaceable parts. Many of the tin mechanisms are no longer available anywhere. For example: Even the popular Remington 742 bolt and action parts have not be available for over 5+ years.

Stay safe and take care of each other!
