    Well it’s soaking in kroil and will begin to deploy some tactics. Forgot to mention the choke has a spiraling crack running down a quarter of it. Kind of embarrassed I let this go as normally I’m kind of a stickler for not neglecting gear. Thanks for the tips, I’ll let you know how it gets removed

    Better take some measurements. If you do manage to get it out without a brownells stuck choke remover the thread portion of the barrel may be swelled. Bailey can repair it either way but I bet it's cheaper to buy a new barrel.

    Not specific to choke tubes but aside from oil (I use Mousemilk) if it's stuck use heat. If it doesn't break use more heat. Keep adding more heat until it surrenders. Don't be bashful!

    I seem to have the opposite problem - my chokes are usually loose.

    If the tubes come loose easily a wrap of Teflon tape on the threads usually cures it.

    Had a Mossberg 500 with this issue, I had to use a hand held propane blow torch to get this choke tube loose.

    Good luck.
