Converting Old Browning Model A-5s

Newer versions of this famous shotgun use roll pins instead of screws to hold certain action parts. Here’s how to convert early Auto-5s.

Glock Mods: An M1911 Man Branches Out

I’ve worked with the 1911 for many years, and sometimes that experience has been helpful with other pistols, such as the Browning Hi-Power, for example. Sometimes the differences between pistols are hard to spot, and other times we find similarities between handguns that at first seem very different. Another example: If you can work on the Savage 1910, you can work on the Astra 400, and you won’t be confused by the H&K P7M8. But the Glock? Ah, the Glock is an altogether different creature. Sometimes my 1911-based reasoning produces positive results with the Glock, and other times it does not. With the Glock so popular with law-enforcement and now proving itself in competition—winning the first top-class award at IPSC—we’re going to see more and more Glocks turned in for improvement. And at the very least, we should be familiar with the similarities and the differences between the Glock and “old Slabsides.”

May 22, 2008

Printer Friendly | Email |

Madison, NC – Remington Model Five offerings in 2008 – the Model Five Youth in 22 LR; the Model Five Laminate in 17 HMR; and a classic Model Five in 22 LR with European Walnut stock. Whether you are a new shooter, small game hunter or just like to spend an afternoon plinking, these full-featured rimfires deliver a level of performance you would only expect from a premium centerfire rifle.

The Model Five platform features a reliable, smooth-operating solid steel bolt action; carbon-steel, hammer-forged barrel with standard 1:16 inch rate of twist; detachable, steel magazine box with five-round capacity; steel trigger guard; chrome-plated bolt body; single stage trigger with manual two-position safety; butt plate; convenient sling swivel studs (excluding Youth version); adjustable big game-style rifle sights; and dovetail-style receiver for the option of mounting optics. Both receiver and barrel wear a traditional polished blue finish which completes this classic rimfire rifle.

Model Five Youth 22 LR – Comfort, fit and safety are the key features of a firearm designed for the younger shooter and this rimfire may just be the perfect “first-time” rifle. The downsized, hardwood stock has a shortened length of pull (12⅜-inches) which provides proper balance and fit with the more compact 16½-inch barrel.

Bolt-actions inherently offer a level of safety with manual cycling of the bolt required but the inclusion of a single shot adapter on this Youth version adds the option of turning this five-shot capacity rifle into a single shot. The Model Five Youth platform, combined with the affordable and easy-shooting 22 LR chambering, makes this rimfire the ideal rifle for the new shooter at the range or to take afield on their first hunt. Suggested retail price: $237

Model Five Laminate 17 HMR – The flat-shooting, medium range 17 HMR offering has many rimfire enthusiasts back out at the range and in the field. By combining this premium performer with the accurate Model Five bolt-action, rimfire shooting is taken to the next level. On this version, the flawless-functioning action is housed in a sturdy weather resistant, brown laminate stock. 22 LR and 22 WMR chamberings are also available. Suggested retail price: $363

Model Five European Walnut Stock 22 LR – If a more traditional rimfire offering is your preference, then this Model Five with a classic wood stock, constructed of European Walnut, may catch your eye. Available in 22 LR only. Suggested retail price: $279

Every shooter needs a bolt action rimfire rifle and these well-designed Model Five rifles deliver performance, accuracy and a whole lot of fun! Visit our web site at www.remington.com for the complete listing of Remington bolt-action, pump-action and autoloading rimfire rifles.
