Default Re bore chokes on Reproduction ?

Hi, tried searching and have heard differing opinions.

Can you open up the chokes on reproduction barrels ?

Trying to open up a few full barrels to IC/M for upland bird.

If possible, suggestions for who to use ?

Thanks

Jeff

Brian, I have seen some evidence of barrel work on chrome plated Beretta barrels resulting in rusting of the worked on areas. Should anyone be afraid of such work?

I am not familiar with what you speak of Bill.

I am talking about opening up the choke on a set of barrels, making a mod/full into a mod/ic.

Has anyone done it, if so, who did it and any issues.

I have heard that there are issues in doing it on chrome lined barrels.

I’ve heard the same thing Jeff, but I don’t remember who said it or even if it was from a reliable source.

This is my understanding and what has been explained to me:

Only the 12-ga. Steel Shot Special has chrome lining through the choke area, all other Repros have chrome lining through the bores only -- not through the choke area. Therefore, special reamers are needed only when opening chokes on a SSS -- which are already choked IC/M (typically .006/.011).
