Another trick is to try and actually tighten it just a smidge - many times that will break the hold and let you take it out.

This year I got two CZ Bobwhite SxS's. They both use tube and the first gun's I ever had that use them. Have read abut stuck tubes before and really hope to avoid that but just in case, my 28ga has cyl/I C in it and if they get stuck, I'll live with it. Think of it as my grouse gun. Have another 28ga and it has IC/S2 in it, my other grouse gun! The other CZ is a 20 ga and haven't a clue what I'll use it for, maybe Huns, probably Huns. Don't know what Ill use in it yet but think IC/Mod. Thinking about it for pheasant if I actually ever hunt them again. Other than those two new CZ's everything has fixed chokes. I got discouraged with screw in chokes long ago. Everyone I saw either had expanded tubes which I find really ugly or the barrels were bulged at the end to accommodate the choke and I find that even uglier! The advantage of fixed chokes for me is they are all I've ever known!

Just make sure you clean the threads on the choke tubes and inside the barrels and then regrease/lube as directed by the owners manual. Any lubricant will do from mineral oil to anitseize.

IF one has a stuck choke tube or tubes , the quickest way to un-stick them is to HEAT outside of your barrel or barrels . Heat gun hair dryer or torch ( just be damn careful and DON'T get carried away with too much heat ) If you feel more comfortable with lubricant squirt a little Liquid Wrench on those threads allow to soak squirt a little more wait 20 minutes and , firmly square up your choke wrench and Back them out .

Over the years I've come to the conclusion expensive break lose penetrating concoctions , are NO better than Liquid Wrench and it's Less money than most any other product . So pocket the difference for a box or two of shells .
