    I sprayed mine with Krylon. Then used sharpie to write what they were in larger print. Seems to work fine. Over 2 years now, hmm... 25 hunts with that gun/tube? And it's still camo green. Carlson's stainless ones.

    I sprayed my patternmaster with flat black krylon about 5 years ago. I'll probably touch it up here soon before we start hunting snows. Most of the paint is still there, but it's getting a little shiny again around the ports.

    Here is just one thread I easily found

    http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=439360

    My buddy's went through several snap rings, they finally had him send it back to factory, cost him 80 bucks shipping that time, ring broke within a few weeks again, they wanted him to send it back again, nicest auto he ever bought and the dang thing was a piece of junk. It seems to be a fairly common issue with these. He finally unloaded it at a local gunshop. I feel sorry for the next owner. He's lovin his new Beretta multitarget though.

    This gun test, published on the Fabarm website, says the EXIS HP choke tubes that come with the XLR5 are made of stainless steel.

    My XLR5 Extreme's (5) chokes work really well , as most chokes do ! With this gun having a "Old school design" of a Tapered barrel
    it has been fun to understand it's performance over a standard barrels bore or even a slightly overbored barrel . One thing for sure is ,
    this gun is fun to adjust for "fit" as with its many options of adjustability , it does shoot where I'm looking . I would question the tapered
    barrels ability to handle very large steel shot sizes as going from the Forcing Cone at (.740 ) tapered down to (.725 ) at the muzzle ,
    wouldn't it be like shooting a OLD Superpose with a .725 bore ?
