I picked up a steal last night on a 76 Browning Auto 5 Magnum with 30" fixed full choke barrel. I was wanting to send it somewhere to have the barrel opened up to accept screw in Invector chokes. Has anyone here had any experience with this? I bought this thing to drag along on a few hunts since its in great shape and has synthetic stocks. I figured $400 wasn't a bad price for a great condition Jap Auto 5 with synthetic stocks, wood stocks, and 200 high brass #6's. I just need to open that barrel up some. You guys know of anywhere that I can get that done?
I've always been a huge Benelli fan. But in the last 2 weeks I've run up on great deals and bought the Jap Magnum Auto 5 30" full vr barrel I mentioned and a 1957 Belgium Light Twelve with 28" mod. vr barrel. i have fell in love with these guns. I can see already that the Belgium is going to be my dove killer. I can also tell my SBEII and my M2 will be left behind on some duck hunts to take that Jap Auto 5 along with me
Also does anyone know a ball park figure on what it may cost to have this done? I'm a big fan of Carlson's choke tubes. So I was hoping to get this barrel to where I could use them in IC and MOD
