INVECTOR CHOKE TUBE CODE—
To identify individual Invector tubes, refer to the abbreviated indications on the side of the
tube, or use the identification mark(s) located on the top rim of each tube. (See Figure 14).
INVECTOR TUBE SELECTION
To help you choose the correct choke tube for each hunting situation, all Browning Invector choke tubes are inscribed on the side with the patterns they produce with both lead and steel shot. Each Invector tube also has notches in the top rim of the tube. These notches are a code to allow you to determine the choke designation while the tube is installed. Rim notches refer spe- cifically to lead shot. you will need to use the chart below to cross-reference from lead to steel, and determine the appropriate tubes for your am- munition and hunting/shooting situation.
Several tubes are supplied with your Browning shotgun. The tubes listed are also available as ac- cessories. Remember, Standard Invector and Invector-Plus tubes are not interchangeable. Invector-Plus tubes are for Browning guns with back-bored barrels, such as your new Auto-5. Older Auto-5 shotguns are Standard Invector. Be- fore removing/installing tubes, or reading the rim
