Too soon old, Too late Smart. It's pretty much what every collector of original Parkers has been saying. Sadly, the Repros are not considered by the very same people who bemoan that sacrilegious treatment, to have future as a collectible.

I do not really care what present and future collectors think of my decision to open chokes. I do know there are hundreds of grouse in 6 states plus New Brunswick that regretted my decision.

I opened a 28" repro 28 gauge. It was choked "mod/full." The "full" was 40/1000. I thought it silly tight (still do). I heard Briley said 28 gauges were too thin to put chokes in, so I had a local (skilled) gunsmith open both barrels to skeet/skeet. I am happy.
