Tru Glo Gobble Stopper or Strut Stopper Extreme?
« on: July 08, 2012, 06:46:43 PM »
today i went to the gander mountain in ashland va. They were having a going out of business sale... everything shooting related was marked at ninety percent off. I Purchased an alleged gobble stopper combo with fiber optic sights for 2.49. the choke doesnt resemble any gobble stopper choke i have seen. this choke has vertical lines all the way around it. the port holes are all at the end of the tube. Did i get lucky and get the ssx choke for 2.49. This is for my invector choked A-5 and also to try in my 535

Congratulations! You did. You hit the jackpot on that one. There were some chokes that were packaged improperly, not many but apparently you found one of them. I'd recommend that you deep clean the bore and then enjoy your find.

Thanks,

The SSX has an exit diameter of .643 and works best with shells with #6 or #7 shot. I would recommend 3" Hevi-13 "Bronze" shells with 2 oz. of either #6 or #7 shot.

It is important to thoroughly clean that choke with the same "deep cleaning" procedure as you'd use on your bore. You will also find that it patterns better the more it is shot. I usually recommend that after it's deep cleaned, you shoot some (a box is good) of 2.75" inexpensive shells through the choke. It responds very well to this break-in procedure. After you've shot it, then just clean it with some solvent and you're ready to go to the range and pattern it. Have fun and enjoy your bargain.

Thanks,
Clark

Thanks Clark, i thought the smaller shot would work better in that choke, but i will have to wait till next weekend to shoot it. get it deep cleaned one night and have it ready for saturday morning. that way i can shoot it before it gets to hot

I have seen a couple of those mixed up packages at GM. The SSX is a really great tube. I have had a lot of luck with them and #6's as well as #7's as well.

Great find!
