Preview: Briley 360Click Quick-Change Choke System

posted on August 9, 2020
The question we should have been asking ourselves long ago is: Why have we been turning a choke tube more than one revolution to fully seat it? Engineers at Briley Manufacturing, a company based out of Houston, Tex., have developed the answer to that question with a choke tube that requires rotation of only 360 degrees to fully seat.

Aside from the brilliant mechanical function of the design, the 360Click system looks cool, too. The exposed tube is stylish and provides functional aesthetics, thanks to longitudinal knurling combined with spiral flutes. Long gone are the days of spinning choke tubes for minutes at a time. In a competitive, and even a hunting setting, time is of the essence, and Briley’s 360Click is touted to be 10 times faster than conventional, threaded-in choke tubes. A quick twist of the choke tube detaches it from the barrel, enabling target shooters to change barrel constriction to match the environment scenarios in the sporting clay arena.

The 360Click choke is made of 17-4 stainless steel and mates with a provided adapter featuring a black QPQ finish. Installation requires the adapter to be secured in the barrel before installation of the quick-change choke tube can occur. Briley’s 360Click choke design allows for tool-less use. Turn the choke 360 degrees to engage a point of resistance with a felt “click.” This engagement secures the unit into the provided adapter. An adapter wrench is included, along with thread-locking compound.

360Click commands an MSRP of $554.65 for its Starter Set that includes five choke tubes and two adapters. Single choke tubes are available separately, along with adapters and wrenches.
