View Full Version : Early '70s belg a5 mag

October 30, 2016, 22:21
So my only semi shotgun is an early 70's belg a5 mag. My thought is since the bluing is almost all gone I was thinking of parkerizing it. Also pull the furniture off and bead blast it to start a new and do some fine coats of tung oil. A family member told me that this is a stupid idea and will only hurt the value. My thoughts are that I will never sell this gun and pas it to my almost three y/o son. I'm sure it may hurt the "collector" value but I also feel it would look mighty fine and serve a utilitarian purpose. What say the rabble. :whiskey:

Does it really have any value to destroy in the shape it's in. I have an early 50's a5 in 95% and don't think it's worth much more that $600 or $700

I'd say go for it.
