sorry but it was my grandfathers who passed away so it has a lot of value to me. its not for sale. but thanks again tho. i need to re-blue the parts after i get the rust off of it. its been sitting in my dads closet for a year now and in an old barn for 5 years before that. so its a little worn looking. but if you really want a rifle i have a gsg 522 that im looking to get rid of at some point. $250 i bought it for about 400 3 or 4 weeks ago. so thats pretty much brand new and half off.

oh also i took the time to go shoot it yesterday and found out that every now and then the browning A5 wont eject the spent shell and it will just reload it. the bolt comes back far enough to cock the gun but not far enough to spit out the shell. any suggestions as to why and how this can be fixed?

most likely just needs a good cleaning(include the recoil spring). its not a 16 gauge is it?

A5s, are recoil operated, so they are finicky as to the type of ammo they shoot. There is a buffer that creates friction on the recoil spring. If you have a magnum buffer setup and fire standard loads the gun wont cycle right, if you have a standard buffer set up and fire magnum loads the gun will tear itself appart.

A5s, are heardy as hell, but the desighn does neeed to be opperated right, so you dont destroy it. If i were you i would do one or both of these things,
Call AGI and get thier A5 armorer video
Call Browning and get a owners manual for your model gun.

Chnaces are you DO not have the magnum buffer set up on that shotgun, so dont shoot magnum loads through it, untill you are sure.

Have fun, its a real nice piece!

Also,
Recoil operated guns can shortcycle if you dont hold them firmly. On your A5 its important to have a proper shooting stance, lean into the gun, not away, pull it tight into your shoulder. That alone may eliminate the problem. Dont use a foamy recoil pad on the butt. You can be a sloppier shooter with a gas opperated gun, but because the recoil energy needs to stay in the gun, the A5 needs you to hold it firm and lean in. Think aggressive when you shoot it.

I helped a friend I'd an A5 last year. Google Auto 5 serial numbers and you will find a chronicle of all produced A5 ranges.

Production began in Belguim around 1905 and continued until WWII until Belguim fell to the Nazi's. Remington was producing an A5 copy under License from FN and during the War years, picked up A5 production along side there Model 11 clone.

Production returned to Belguim after the war and continued until 1975. After 75 all A5's were build in Japan.

Value depends on condition and ranges from $200 to $900 depending on year/location of build and condition with pre war Belguim guns at the top, followed by post war Belguim, then Remi built War guns, and lastly the Japanese units.

I'd run the serial number before you refinishing anything and take not to damage any remaining finish while removing rust.

Tack
