    Browning A5

    Looking for a old Browning A5, I have a newer invector multi choke barrel just looking for the rest to put together it all together.

    Haha I'm the opposite
    I should try to get a barrel for mine.
    The reality is unless I got one cheap the money is better spent on a newer shotgun and save the A5 for special occasions.

    Yes your right I have a newer beretta but the wife has her eye on that and I’m a sucker for the old A5.

    Yeah would have to ask why? I could believe the improvement to my shooting after I went to a gas gun (11-87) from the A5.

    Missed your chance at the dreaded gun city 12 to 18 months ago. Had a metric shit ton of different A5's. Maybe 20ish?
    Expensive to cheap. They had a parts gun which I thought pretty hard about but some of the ones on special and supposedly functioning were cheaper.
    No fundage as normal so didnt happen

    Yeah definitely some of the modern guns are easier to shoot but I have never had trouble shoot an A5.

    I liked the fit but The clacking and recoil when shooting boxes put me off.

    I love the old girl too. Getting a bit worn but had a cosmetic refurb as in a bit of a reblue last year.
    Bit of pitting in the full choke barrel but geez I used to shoot ok with it. Probably why I am so fond of it
    Reliable as but lead only now otherwise I'd still use it on ducks. Well not quite right as it has needed a repair here and there and some bits could do with replacenent
    Still.shoots ok
