New a5 won't unload

Postby Browndoggy » Sun Dec 22, 2013 6:49 pm

Hey guys first time posting! I bought a new a5 this fall and have had great luck with it cycling anything I feed it. However I have a small issue with unloading it. First you pull bolt back and eject the shell that's chambered, second you hit magazine release and it lets one shell out of magazine tube. This is where the problem is. Sometimes it won't release the shell! Anyone else had this issue? I feel it's a safety issue. When unloading it can lead you to believe that gun is empty when it's not!!!! Any advice? Browning says send it to them so when seasons over it's going!

Thanks for input! I've stripped it all the way down when cleaning and I feel that it's in the latch in the trigger assembly.

It could be I took my trigger assembly out of the gun and soaked it in hot water with dish washer soap ......no this won't hurt it just let it dry good then oil the mechanism and see what happens. Mine works every time now.

I assumed it was because the spring has so much tension out of the box. I usually just sharply bump the chamber with my hand after I hit the button and the shell will drop. The last shell always drops

I've had a very similar experience with mine. I'm going to try cleaning the mag tube and the trigger really well.
I have also had problems with the auto load getting stuck on the carrier sometimes. Anyone else?

I had it happen last time I went duck hunting and it was very cold. I assumed it was because of the cold and maybe some moisture. I'll keep an eye on it and see if it does it again. I haven't taken the mag tube apart yet to fully clean it but I'll take a look in that as well.
