I stand corrected and thank you for the information. I just took for granted that since they used the benelli/beretta choke systems that they were made there.

Not sure anyone ever said exactly were in Turkey, but I do know it's a major manufacturer that makes a lot of different (branded) guns.

Benelli has two different chokes systems now. My M2 uses the Crio System, but my M1 uses the original Benelli pattern choke.

They are not interchangeable.

The Crio chokes are for thin wall cryogenically treated barrels only.

I do not like having to keep two sets of chokes for basically identical shotguns (from the same manufacturer).

That does seem kind of goofy. I remember when I had my Berretta semi (beretta copy of the Benelli, WAY back in the 90's it was a very thin walled barrel.

My weatherby's are the mobile choke system, and they are ported. I WAS going to put a scope of somekind, a reflex in particular, but I've since changed my mind and am going to leave them be for now. I was just (In the back of my mind) bothered by something sticking up on top of a shotguns receiver. I guess I am REAL old school.

Don't you already have something sticking up on the receiver? Those open sights are enormous. That's ok as long as they work, and I assume they do or else you would've said something by now.
