To go with your Crio treated barrel, yes they are Crio chokes, they just aren't "extended" Crio chokes. :D Yeah, what Tucker said.

Are these chokes as horrible as everyone says? Will a cheap aftermarket extended choke outperform the factory chokes i have? If so why doesn't benelli release the "mack Daddy" extended crio chokes?

Yes, they are horrible, the pellets just fall out of the barrel.

 

You must have extended chokes to kill anything past 5 yards....

 

What does functionality have to do with anything?.....

Yes. Crio just refers to the fact that the metal has been cryogenically treated. As long as the tube fits the gun, it can be used.

I would put the non-Crio choke in the freezer before every trip out smile.gif

 

It appears Benelli and other choke makers use the name 'Crio' to designate certain chokes. The name Crio appears to refer to the Beretta Optima choke system, and the name Crio Plus appears to refer to the Beretta Optima Plus system.

 

Remeber that Beretta Optima Plus guns like the Xtrema are overbored and Benellis are not. Therefore you need to select your chokes based on constriction not the common choke name.
