Choke tube wrench

I have a Fabarm Red Lion 12ga. autoloader & have lost the choke tube wrench for it. This gun was made in Italy & imported by H & K. The odd thing about the choke tubes is they take a 6 pin wrench instead of the 4 pin most commonly used in other guns. I've written to H & K as well as several Fabarm distributors & not received an answer from any.
Any suggestions as to where I might locate one would be most appreciated.

Maybe call H&K?

I looked around on the web and found nothing- I'm sure you did the same. Maybe a call to H&K? Might be more productive than a letter. The number on their website is
Phone (205) 655-8299

Try a flat washer and a pliers until you can get the correct tool.

I was trying to think up an alternative

In the spirit of displaying adaptability, I was trying to think of a way to substitute something else in. I've used a pin wrench to work on bicycle bottom brackets, like this one:

Then there are pin wrenches here, too:

Any of those a possibility?

Sucess, well maybe

Got a call back from H&K today. They didn't have a wrench but refered me to CDNN in Texas. Wrench is ordered & will hopefully be here by the end of the week. Even if it is not the right one, it was only $20 including shipping. Worth a shot, no pun intended.

Thumbs up Got it

Wrench showed up today & it is indeed the correct one. What a pain in the butt to find one. Now I can change choke tubes & go shoot some ducks or dove. Maybe a trip to the skeet range would be in order first for a little refresher on how that gun shoots. I figure 10 rounds (250 targets) should do it.

Thanks for the suggestions.
