I use the same Choke tubes in my T/C 12ga as I use in my S&W, and Mossberg 12ga.  I do believe they are Browning tubes.  I'll have to check.

Let me take the above back.  Can't remember which tubes I use in my T/C 12 ga.  It's buried under about 30 guns and barrels and I don't feel like digging it out at this time.  I do know when I bought it I found I already had choke tubes that fit it.  And after thinking about it for a while I do believe the choke tubes came from my Stouger 12ga Skeet gun.  But I still think the little plastic tubes the choke tubes came in say Browning on the outside.

Best thing to do is take the tube currently in the barrel with you to the gun store, and match it.  In most cases when the guy behind the counter sees it he will know which one you need.

Briley can make a custom one like they did for my 10-gauge TCR barrel,

The question is not to have one made , but to identify what I have.....kinda a research/mystery problem. Nothing close in any of the choke tube/gunsmith supply places.. nor can any of the shops I visited identify it.....closest I came was.."beats the s_ _ _ out of me"    . Need a TCR expert.....if any exist!

      I have no experience with any of the TCR's but surprized that it would be different from the Encores and muzzle loader barrels which are the same, at least mine are.  Be aware that Browning, Mossburg and I think Winchester as well each have two different choke tubes(just to make life interesting).  The Browning Invector(not the Invector Plus)and the equivalent Mossburg and Winchester fit my TC's.  Mine mikes about .812 OD at the muzzle.
