On extended chokes, there is usually a very small gap between the choke and the barrel end to make sure the choke bottoms out and not the extended part
When I took out the flush mounted choke and installed the extended choke initially it screwed in w/o any problems. When the extended choke tube was fully seated the marking of the type choke (on the outside of tube) lined up w/ the front sight on the barrel.

This is how I knew that, after cleaning the barrel, removing the extended choke tube to clean it off and lube the threads that something was wrong. The front sight and the choke tube marking no longer lined up properly.
