    Hey all, I recently received a carlson's barrel through Midway for my 870. Issue is though where it was made wasn't my reason for choosing this company(reviews were) but on the side it plainly says made in Turkey. How can they advertise as made in USA then plainly say made elsewhere? If it patterns fine I don't mind I'm just curious.

    Highly doubt they make any barrels in house, they just don't sell enough to make it worth it.

    When they said made in the USA i'd assume they're talking about choke tubes.

    What isn't made in Turkey these days?

    Probably fine, though.

    You're right their CHOKES are made in USA barrels are made in Turkey, but as I said as long as it patterns well, I don't care if it was made in OZ

    I really hope this is a 24” rifle sighted removable choke barrel made in Turkey for Turkeys?

    To each their own my friend do whatever brings you happiness. Just don't limit yourself by not trying the foreign stuff, who knows you may find even better craftsmanship on a few different makes.
