Wondering if anyone puts any kind of lubricant on the treads of choke tubes before installing? I was thinking about using an extremely light coating of white lithium grease since it is advertised to be acceptable to 275 F, but would like to hear pros and cons from others first.

Beretta recommends that on their shotguns, and I’ve seen it recommended elsewhere. Just a light coat of gun oil, not lithium grease.

Probably the best product would be a nickel based Anti-Seize, next would be a “Moly” based grease followed by regular grease. Regular grease if heated sufficiently will turn to carbon and lock up the threads. I have always used the Nickel Anti-Seize over the Copper or Aluminum based products.

I use anti seize either copper or nickel based and have never had a seized choke tube . once a year I remove the tube and clean the inside threads in the barrel with a tooth brush and solvent . then apply anti seize compound to the outside of the choke tube and insert it . this keeps carbon build up down in the treated area.

Thanks to all for the replies. Guess I'll stay away from the white lithium and go with Anti-Seize nickle based compound. I found a 0.5 oz. tube on Amazon, and even though it's kind of pricey this small tube will probably last me for quite a few years.

I use the Birchwood-Casey brand of anti-seize choke tube lube for choke tubes and for muzzle loader breach plugs. It came highly recommended to me from folks with lots of experience, and so far it has never let me down. I'm sure there are other brands that would work just as well, but this is readily available and, as someone else said, a tube will last a long time.

I too use the Birchwood Casey lube on the ProBore chokes on my 1100 Competition-be sure to check your choke tube manufacturer's recommendations before lubing-some recommend certain products, some (usually premier ones like Müller) recommend none.

Anyone ever use this product from Outers?   I have had it on the store forever and never sold a tube of it. rs=w_600,h_600.jpg

NEVER anything more than a drop or two of gun oil.
