Browning a5 users?

    Recommended Posts

    Anyone here shooting an a5?

    Have one being brought in tomorrow and am unsure whether to buy it.

    I've never had or sold one but have a vague recollection of reading some poor reviews a while ago.

    This one is a 2013.

    Any info appreciated.

    Cheers

    Never seen one in any dealers I've been in, or any at a shoot I've attended. Can't be very popular these days.

    Remember some on here buying them when they first came out.

    With it being inertia it should be reliable enough.

    I would expect reliability and good build quality but as you say there doesn't seem to be a great number of them about. I don't recall having seen one anywhere.

    It's one of those guns that I think should sell easily but I have that having feeling that it could sit for a long time. A bit like the 32" fusion that I have.

    I will see how many replies I get before it turns up tomorrow.

    The guy didn't turn up yesterday so I guess he will come in today.

    I've made a provisional offer but also told him that I need to look at it before confirming. He is supposed to be bringing it on the basis of my offer.

    I've seen the ones on guntrader and also know that sportsman guncentre offered him £200!

    I will see what it's like and make a decision from there.

    They must have believed off was a pre 1998 of the long recoil design. (The barrel moves backwards in the action like a pogo stick the length of the bolt) 

    The later ones have a system like a bennelli and  the Barrel won't move.  £200 offer is a bit cheeky for a 2013 gun  if you ask me.

    Hmm £250.00 sounds like a good deal lol.

    Eddoakley you certainly seem to like the more unusual guns to stock.

    I offered more than that but not as much as he wanted.

    Gotta have some interesting and unusual stuff otherwise it would get a bit boring. I don't seem to make any money from having a shop so I at least need to make it a bit of fun!
