I have read some good reports about the Star Dot Chokes for the 835. The only problem seems to be finding one. Can anyone offer suggestions? Thanks

It took some searching to find one. Seems like you have to find an individual who is selling one to pick one up. I managed to find one from a guy selling one on here that was a Preston Pittman choke, which is the same thing as a Star Dot. I would check the Old Gobbler forums. There was a guy selling some for $40. I believe he had three left. It throws a heck of a pattern out of my 935.

The Star Dot choke is probably in my mind the best choke you can shoot out of the 835. I can't see another more expensive choke like Indian Creek or Pure Gold out shooting my Star Dot. I have 2 of them and both were very hard to find. The Star Dot is .676 constriction for the 835 by the way.

The Star Dot chokes that they made for Winchester, Browning, and Moss 500 with Invector threads are said to shoot very well in them guns at least in the Win 1300 and Moss 500 guns from what I have been told. The Remington Star Dot chokes were not very good from shooting the one I have in my Rem 870. So I wouldn't recommend them for any Rem gun from my experience or from others who have tried the Star Dot chokes in their Rem guns.

wow! I bought one 6-8 years ago on ebay. Really just bought it cause it was cheap ($11 if I'm not mistaken). I wanted a different choke but didn't want to spend the bucks. Shoots really good. Its funny, cause I always thought I had bought a "cheap" choke. I was even hesitant to tell people what kind it was. Turns out I made a good choice without even realizing it.:bounce:

I was shooting a Mad max choke,and my friend bought a Star Dot for his gun,and it walked the dog on mine,so I bought me one,and in all of my testing over the years it rivals my kicks .665 at 1/3 of the price.With every load.Sometimes it was better by a few pellets,sometimes the kicks was better by a few.Wish they still manufactured them.

I believe the company that used to make Star Dot chokes is Colonial Arms. You can go online and order chokes direct. I am ordering some chokes from them tonight.

Hmmmmmm 3 bidders retracted their bids all at one time. lol Looks like they may have got an offer from someone else? IMO, it's stupid to bid early on Ebay, anyway!! :) If you can be there at the end; bid at the end.
