question about Jap Auto 5

Postby Luvbowhuntn » Sat Jul 13, 2013 1:11 pm

Do all the Jap Auto 5's come with screw in chokes? I've got a chance to pick one up on the cheap, but I want to make sure it's got the screw in chokes. Its a '76 Mag version. Its been used so it isn't in pristine condition,but I figure it'll be a good shooter for doves and ducks as a backup. I just don't want to be stuck with another fixed choke Auto 5. Already have a Belgium Light Twelve with cylinder bore barrel on it. Need something I can vary the choke on now

I can't speak for where you are but around here it would only cost you $150 to get it threaded for chokes, I can only assume it would be even cheaper if you live in the USA.
I can't speak as to whether or not Japanese A-5's all have chokes or not, but I hope this helps.

Not all of them have screw-in chokes, no. I have three Jap guns and only two have chokes, the other one is fixed full.

A 76 model would be fixed chokes.

I think standard invector chokes began in either 1987 or 1989 on the A5. (That knowledge kinda comes and goes based on the day.)

Yep its a fixed full choke. I need to find someone to open that barrel up for screw in IC and MOD Invector chokes. The walls of the barrel seem plenty thick for this. I posted a thread a few minutes ago to see who I need to send it to and what it may cost
