I joined your club, thanks to Yentzen always posting pictures of his, it made me want one, I now have 2, a 1990 Mag 12 and a '57 Standard Weight 12

Here is the Mag 12, just brought it home:

Soon as it gets a good going over, and some patterning work, it will be in the blind with me on opening day

Been on this forum for years and just found out about this thread............(bw77)

Been shooting the A-5's since I was in my late 20's and am now 64,
so I have seen a few , come and go.

My father to me, and I to my son and sold a few that did not work out but still own one that I use with lead in the field.

Nothing like , looking down an old "Hump Back" .

Use a 391 for the steel, but it is not the same, when duck hunting.

Just raise hell, with the upland game now a days with it.

Later.

A 5 roll call

Postby Graymatter » Mon Nov 03, 2008 3:05 pm

I've got about a dozen of them from the first year of import to the gold classic. All guages, light and mags and bunch of spare barrells. The only one I'm missing is the standard 12. All of them from Belguim. Great guns. If I every find the silver classic with matching serial number to my gold classic I might just HAVE to buy another one :biggrin:

I've got a few...most of my pics are on shotgunworld. I've had more in the past, but needed to pair down a bit....don't ask me why. I have no sensable answer. My main waterfowl gun is a Jap Stalker Mag, and my two favorites are my 1972 Super Lightweight 20ga, at around 5lbs, and my latest; a 1913 16ga with straight/english stock. Can't beat'em. :biggrin:
Here's a thought: Let the ducks work and decoy.

Still think you need to cut me a deal on the Superlight and that old, worn out straight stock!

BTW: Still haven't decided if I'm going to get that 12ga Super Light receiver or not....

1965 a-5's

Postby kansasduckhunter » Thu Nov 13, 2008 12:18 pm

I have two a-5's that my grand dad gave me. A light 12 and a light 20. They have the matte rib on them. He never fired them even once. I've only had them for a few years and haven't been able to do more then just admire them. They are 1965 models.

Just got handed down my great grandfather's A5 light and can't wait to shoot it. The ducks won't know what hit them.

i got an old belgium A5, best gun ever. pops handed it down to me as he doesnt hunt anymore. ive bought other guns so the A5 doesnt go hunting too often, but whenever that happens brand x takes a poop and is sold the next day. im sticking with the a5 until i give it to my son(that i dont have) lol

I shoot and collect A-5's. I have a Benelli SBE II, M2 20 ga and a Nova but yet I quack hunt w/a 1960 A5 Mag 12 and Turkey hunt w/a 71 A5. Nothing like a Humpback. Being this is a Duk hunting site here is one of mine, a 1st yr 1958 A5 Mag 12.
