I just got a real good deal on an American Arms Silver II O/U. My questions are on the choke tubes, etc. I got 5 choke tubes with it 2 of them have AA Skeet on them so I know what they are for but the others only have notches on the ends, one has 1 notch one has 3  and the other has 4. I put inside calipers and measured them and the 1 notch is the tightest. I want to know if someone else has the owner manual that tells exactly what one is which. I know the 1 notch is either full or extra full. Also if someone has the owner manual could I get a copy? I will pay for copying and mailing. I did not get a owners manual with it and I cannot find American Arms on line. Any help would be appreciated. <!--emo&:)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo--> Also how good are these guns? Thanks in advance.

Hi, RedHawk 1:
     There's a European system of choke markings that uses * marks to indicate choke.
*     Full
**   Modified
*** Improved cylinder

  Your tubes may use the notches as a similar system. Of course, only the pattern board knows for sure.

   I deleted your extra posts. That happens to me every now and again too.  Don't double click on the "Add Reply" button, just one click will do.

Bye

If I remember correctly Benelli uses the same notch system. Jack is right that the asterisks and notches are the same.

My choke tubes, 1 has 1 notch and the others have 3 and 4 noches. But I do not have one with 2 noches? I don't know if the is one with 2 noches. Does anyone know where I can get an owner manual for one?  <!--emo&:)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->

Redhawk1,
Trulock has choke tubes to fit the American Arms shotguns.  They may know more about the id system.  Here's their website:
http://trulockchokes.com/home/americanarms.htm

While I didn't find a website or contact number for American Arms, if you do a search at http://www.google.com  there are lots sites that touch on these firearms.

Hope this helps.

American Arms is no more.  Their interests have been purchased by a company called "Tristar".  They do have a web site, but unfortunately I failed to bookmark it.

Best Regards:)

I finally had a few moments to look the information up.  It was in "Short Shots" of the American Handgunner -- March/April 2001 -- page 114.

They list the complete name as "Tristar Ltd." in North Kansas City, Missouri.

Best Regards:)

Welcome [email protected],
Did you happen to notice the thread you responded to was 13 years old? I'm not sure the OP is still waiting for an answer at this point in time. I'm guessing you used the search function? Anyway, welcome and hope you read some of the more current threads :)
