Did all, some or none of the 302s have choke tubes?
Thanks a million,
Rex

Some.

The 302 was the first Beretta model to have choke tubes, and they were different from the ones used later. They dropped into the muzzle without threads, and were held in place with a threaded collar on the outside of the barrel.

That style of choke tube was not popular. It was only used on the 302 and a few early 303's before being replaced by the internally-threaded type still in use. They may also have been used on a few 301's, but it is hard to tell for sure, because so many barrels have been swapped over the years that you never know whether they are original or not.

Beretta originally called them "Mobil Chokes", but later used the same name on the internal type. Now, Beretta's European parts distributor Armeria Brignoli Silvio refers to them as 302 chokes, even though they were also used on a few 303's. Most people call them "drop-in" or "collared" chokes. They are available from Brignoli.

As far as I know, they work as well as the internal type. I have a 302 with them, and I have shot a few clays with them.

e rex, here is a photo of my 302 barrel, drop-in choke, and collar.

I had George Trulock make up a full set of chokes for me. He is a sponsor here at SGW.

Thanks RR. There is one coming up at an auction in a couple of weeks. Around here, auction guns usually bring a little more than new price.
