I was given a winchester 1300 defender 8shot..... it has a 18" barrel.. i want to put an extended extra full turkey choke on it...i went to a couple of place's here in town and they want too much... just wondering if there is someone here that can do the job at a resonable price... or can recomend to send somewhere..thanks.. just to make clear.. i need the barrel to be threaded for a choke...

It would probably be cheaper to just get a choked barrell. I saw some after a quick Google search for around $120-160.
The Defender, out of the box, was never intended to be choked.

I agree with getting a second barrel. If the barrel proves hard to find, just get a used 1300.

Yeah.. i looked into that... the 1300 defender 8 shot only has that one size barrel for it unlike the regular 1300 you can find all types...thats the only reason why im willing to just have an extended choke installed on it...
If you are going to hunt with it you will want the longer barrel. IMO
thanks for the info everyone.
The best bet as mentioned before is to get another barrel but don't forget to plug the magazine tube if you take it hunting. There's a three shot limit, one in the chamber and two in the mag.
