28 Gauge I C Disappointment
« on: August 28, 2021, 07:11:50 AM »
Recently ordered and received an Indian Creek choke for my SA-28. The choke tube (Mobil) would not even begin to screw in. I know it's not the guns threads as I have an aftermarket Briley tube that screws in effortlessly. Sent it back for a refund.

Could it have been the wrong choke? Someone put an Invector in a Mobil-marked packet accidentally, I mean?

Very strange. I’m sure they’ll make it right.

It was marked "28 Gauge Mobil" on the choke. I've read comments on other hunting forums of this happening with 28 gauge chokes from I C.

I C has offered to make a choke that will fit my gun if I send them the barrel, no charge. I'm gonna take them up on that generous offer.  Will update when complete.

I received my barrel today just 10 days after shipping it to Indian Creek. The BDS .525 fit perfectly and I'm sure will shoot a great pattern. From very disappointed to very happy in 10 days!

They said the threads on the SA-28's are too shallow. I'm not really buying that as my Briley tube threaded on effortlessly and they had no idea what gun I would use it on, just ordered a 28 Mobil thread.

Just for my own curiosity I looked up your Mossberg SA-28 and on the Briley website it specifies a Huglu threaded choke tube. I’ve never heard of that type but apparently its also used for the CZ.
I've had multiple Mobil chokes in mine so something may have changed or it's an error.

I looked on the Briley website and it only shows chokes for Mossberg 12, 20 ,28 gauge nothing about Mossberg International  SA-20 or SA-28.  It's a whole different gun.
