An Old School FN

I really like me some 20 gauge A5. Anyone else?

^ I've always wanted a Browning Sweet Sixteen.


....but for now, I'm content with my Browning Auto-5 in 12 gauge, my Remington 11 in 20 gauge, and my Winchester 97 in 16 gauge.

One for a Remington 1100 should fit.

Found a outfit manufacturing these.Not sure if they are compatible with Rem11 but may contact them to see what the can do.

Here in South Florida these old autos make great hog guns.

Seen a Winchester mod 20 or 21 auto 12ga at a local show.Anyone have info on this model

If you are implying that the safety in the front of the trigger guard is a problem, in my opinion you are mistaken - as it was not much of a problem for millions of M1 Garands.

Also the change to the push button safety on A5's occured long after the War, unless you meant the Korean War.
