Trulock™ Choke Tubes Acquires a Fanuc Robodrill Machining Center

Trulock™ Choke Tubes is expanding operations in 2022 with the addition of a Fanuc Robodrill long bed 4 axis vertical machining center. This automated vertical machining unit is equipped with a true fourth axis and is dedicated to produce a specific firearm part for one of Trulock’s major firearm accounts. 

“This Robodrill is extremely accurate and rapid, which allows us to increase our productivity while maintaining exacting quality standards,” shared George Trulock, president of Trulock™ Choke Tubes. “It offers a special design pallet fixture to facilitate fast changes with short cycle times.

Trulock™ designs, builds and tests all their choke tubes at their facility in Whigham, Georgia, using state-of-the-art CNC manufacturing, now including this new Robodrill unit. That process has allowed them to develop chokes with special exit diameters that produce dense, hard-hitting patterns.

In fact, Trulock™ offers the best guarantee in the business: your money back if you’re not satisfied, and a lifetime guarantee against failure as long as you own the choke.

About Trulock™ Choke Tubes

George Trulock began manufacturing chokes in 1981 to solve the dilemma of creating a choke system that could be retrofitted into most shotgun barrels without the use of an adaptor or machine tools. His final design launched The Tru-Choke style choke tube in 1982. Since then, this proprietary system has been adopted by several shotgun manufacturers as O.E.M. and copied by a number of aftermarket choke makers. Trulock™ chokes now stocks approximately 2,000 different choke part numbers and has come a long way from George’s first piece of production equipment, a Warner and Swasey # 2 turret lathe.

Trulock™ Chokes has grown from a one-man show to a company that employs 30 people producing products 24 hours a day, 5 days per week. Trulock™ Chokes is still a family-owned business with George’s sons, Scott and Jerrod, a vital part of the management team.
