Browning Auto 5 magnum 20 problems

Postby quailhunter123 » Tue Feb 18, 2014 5:20 pm

My A5 mag will eject the spend round, load the round in the tube to the place in-between the chamber and the magazine tube and release the 3rd shell so only the brass is sticking out of the magazine tube. I had no rings in the gun because the last time I put them in according to the owners manual the gun would not cycle. Does anybody know what the problem is or have any suggestions?
I think I might need a new recoil spring because when I was given this gun for duck hunting when I was young with no rings in it at all so I think firing high velocity shells with no friction rings might have worn out the recoil sprin

You can still get the friction rings and owners manual for that gun from Browning. Take it to a competent gunsmith and have it fixed properly. Those Magnum 20's are beautiful guns. Take care of it. Good luck.
