  1. #9 shot for skeet. 7 1/2 or 8 for Trap, and when others say magnum they are referring to the type of shot used in the competition shell (Remington STS or Winchester AA) which is harder then the regular field shotshells, not the powder load.

    Trap gun?

    To me the A400 would be the way to go if wanting a semi auto. Fairly low recoil and dependable as well. You would have to put a shell catcher on it though to keep it from kicking shells out in the direction of the shooter next to you. Personally I'd check out Browning's BT99 or 100.

    Muller Chokes

    I've run Mueller chokes in the past. They were good but I ended up selling them. The original chokes for me worked as well as they did.
  4. Try this. One of the best videos I've seen. While not for a 22/45 it should be similar. Kit made a huge difference.
  5. Tron would be the go to guy. Just send him the stock. Fast turn around and a professional job. If you do send your stock be sure to put something between the ears to help reinforce them. during shipping.
  6. Had a Ljutic Mono I shot trap with. Had a stock made to fit me so I could get the correct sight picture. Struggled with it for 6 months. For me it swung and balanced terrible. Felt like swinging a 2x4. Lost an average of 4 to 5 birds. Finally traded it off for a Perazzi. Scores went back up. Sometimes even if a gun fits you, it might feel better then what it was, but still not great.
  7. Briley chokes are as good as any. Choke depends on the relationship of the bore diameter versus the choke constriction. If the bore measures .729 and choke measures .719 that would be IC, same .010 constriction as a .740 bore with a .730 choke. .021 difference in choke sizes, both improved cylinder choke, but different internal diameter. So the choke tube constriction has to be matched to the bore diameter to get the choke you want. .000-cylinder, ..005-skeet 1, .010- IC, ect,ect.

  9. I agree. doesn't look good at all. As said I would get in touch with the manufacturer or builder. Not only to ask about the chip but the barrel as well.
  10. I pretty much use the blue locktite. It works and never had a problem with it.
  11. I definitely think it's personal preference. Try different lengths and see what you like and works the best.
  12. Personally I like the the brake clean in the spray cans. Can usually find it on sale in the $3 range
  13. Yep I'm going to have to vote for 180's as well. Just a good weight class.
