View Full Version : ANOTHER A5 Question

July 27, 2010, 09:41 PM

Still thinking about the old A5. I seem to remember that some of these guns had a buffer in the receiver that the bolt smacked against at the end of the back stroke?
I don't remember if my gun has this. I don't remember good. :D I might have seen it in an army FM on the Remington which is similar. Is this a good add on if my gun doesn't have it? I shoot only trap loads.
Thanks for your patience!

Not the A5. That was the Remington Model 11 Sportsman that had the bolt buffer riveted into the back of the receiver. Remington made the Model 11 slightly different from the A5 (no magazine cutoff, coil spring under the bolt release, slightly shorter receiver, etc). Remington actually made the A5 for Browning during and immediately after WW2, since the Belgian plant was "unavailable". After 1953, Browning resumed importing the A5 from FN.
