introduced the first ported Turkey Choke into the market in 1995. Our
Patented design delivers the best pattern density possible by a choke by
striping the wad from the shot and shortening the shot stream,
delivering more pellets to the turkey’s head at one time, plus
reducing felt recoil and muzzle jump!
NEW! RHINO "THUNDERBOLT" TURKEY CHOKE
RHINO “GRAND SLAM” TURKEY CHOKE
Pricing:$98 & $108
*This choke tube is
designed to produce some unbelievable patterns! 20 yard patterns
measure approximately 8 to 10” in diameter and pattern 100% in that
circumference. 50 yard patterns can be achieved with correct shot size
producing 90% patterns in a 28” diameter.
*We can manufacture a turkey hunting choke for your needs. With
loads that are available today in heavy shot, we are producing
remarkable patterns at the 70 yard mark that are above 80%.
*These choke tubes are manufactured of 174 stainless
steel and are hand lapped to a zero micron finish on the inside (giving
them a mirror finish). The reason behind polishing the inside of the
choke tube is to reduce plastic build-up and shot deformation. These
choke tubes are then brown acid washed resulting in a brown, no-glare,
*The porting on these chokes covers the entire 360
degrees. The holes are designed as wad strippers. This
design allows the shot stream to develop and maintain itself with zero
interruption and interference from the wad, therefore producing 33% more
consistent and more uniform than any other choke. The by-product
of the porting reduces felt recoil by as much as 10% aiding in reduction of recoil in the 3” and 3½” magnum shells
where reduction of recoil is most necessary. Since you are not
exceeding 2000 feet per second this porting will not be as loud as a
muzzle break on a rifle. It will be no louder than a standard shotgun
with or without porting.
Please keep in mind the a choke
tube can only take the shotgun so far. The condition of the barrel will
hinder the performance of your choke if it is not in it’s best
condition. There are several factors which influence your guns’
#1 The first thing to consider
is the point of impact of the shotgun. If it is not correct, there
are several options: Adjustable fiber optics or mounting a scope
can be done by you. Rhino charges $85 to adjust the point of
believes that lengthening and polishing the forcing cone to 2”
creates less shot deformation. This is a critical factor since the
charge generates it’s velocity in this area. If you force the load
through a very short, abrupt area (forcing cone), there is quite a
lot of ‘recoil’ produced. By cutting and polishing this
transition point lengthening and polishing the forcing cone, you make a much more gradual entrance into the
integral part of the barrel which lessens the recoil and diminishes shot deformation. Thus a better pattern
by as much as 20%. Rhino
charges $70 per barrel for this.
#3 The internal condition of
the barrel should be as slick as possible allowing the load to go
down the barrel with minimal amount of disruption. If there are any
scratches or imperfections they should be removed by polishing the
barrel. This will make your barrel shoot 8 to 10% better. Again, the theory is to have nothing interfere
with the load as it develops down the barrel. Any interference will
cause ‘flyers’ and holes in the pattern. Remember how small a
turkey’s head is and you don’t want to miss. Rhino charges
$55 to polish most barrels.
#4 The condition of
your choke is absolutely critical. First it must be clean.
If you only get one shot, make it your best!
Rhino polishes the internal wall of our ported chokes to
eliminate drag and build-up inside the choke tube. Non polished
choke tubes create build-up inside which produce erratic patterns. Since the choke is your last change to
control the pattern, Rhino eliminates final shot deformation
by removing all tooling marks. This allows the load to pass through
the choke and out of the barrel undisturbed, creating that shorter
shot stream which delivers a tremendous impact because it is a short
The price of our ported
patented turkey chokes follow on the chart below.
#5 If you wish your shotgun to
perform 40+ yards, porting the barrel will vent the gases in
front and behind the load. This is the best way to
control the gasses that disrupt patterns. Our goal is to eliminate everything
which will deform the shot. We want there to be NO
resistance to the load as it exits the barrel insuring the best
pattern density at the target area.
Also, please consider that no
two turkey guns are completely alike. The harmonics of each barrel will
cause it to perform differently. This is why you and your friend may
have the same gun, but yours shoots better than his. Each shotgun can
be made to be your ‘Ultimate Turkey Gun’ with a little work!

only a guideline and some guns require further testing to ‘fine tune.’
