    I no longer shoot registered skeet but still like to shoot 3-4 rounds a week with friends. I’d prefer the sub gauges due to the lessor recoil. Not wanting to invest in a full set of Briley or Kolar tubes, I’m thinking I might opt for a set of Briley Sidekicks or Rhino Stingers to shoot in my K80. I’ve seen the Sidekicks and have a pretty good understanding of how they work. The Rhinos apparently work on a different fit principal than the Sidekicks in that they utilize an “O” ring instead of the plastic or Delrin type button.

    However, I don’t see the Stingers listed on the Rhino website and I’m wondering if they are no longer being manufactured (?)

    If I was still shooting registered I’d go for a full set of fitted Ultra Lights but just not wanting to spend $2,000. Another option would be the Briley Companion tubes but they carry a higher price point than the Sidekicks or Stingers and my goal is the lowest cash outlay.

    Hoping someone with first hand experience with the Stingers can weigh in.

    Thanks in advance

    As a person who has tried and shot all the small gauge reducers, In my opinion the Rhino Stingers are hands down the best. They keep your balance of the gun since they are about 15" in length and have screw in chokes for skeet and sporting distances. They do not rely on the bore or choke of the 12 gauge. I have had several sets throughout the years for myself and shooting buddies who come from out of the country to spend some time playing. As a side note, like all small gauge tube reducers, they perform best with AA or STS shells. If not, you may have the occasional stuck hull and need to pop it out with fingers or knife blade. Feel free to contact me via PM if you'd like any further info. Good shooting, Rey

    I don't think Rhino stingers are still in production.
    I have the Briley Sidekicks for my 20ga. K-80 barrels and couldn't be more satisfied with the 28ga. the 410 not so much. Had a set of full length tubes made for the 410.

    Hope this helps
