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.”

Remington Full Camo Youth Shotgun Model 11-87 Sportsman

Madison, NC – Remington introduces a new 20-gauge Model 11-87 Sportsman Youth Camo autoloading shotgun for young hunters who want grown-up performance from a gun that fits their build. This more compact, magnum 20-gauge also provides a full featured option for smaller stature adults as well. (Note: The Model 11-87 Sportsman Youth Camo is an exclusive firearm offering available only from select wholesalers through independent Remington Premier dealers. For a listing of dealers in your area, please visit our web site at www.remington.com/premierdealer.

This low-recoiling shotgun has all the features that have made the Remington Model 11-87 a legend in America’s hunting fields, including smooth feeding, absolute reliability and solid construction. The Sportsman Youth Camo will chamber 2 3/4 and 3-inch shotshells and comes with a fast-handling 21-inch vent rib Rem Choke barrel, supplied with Modified choke tube. The durable, weather-resistant synthetic stock and fore-end and exposed metalwork wear a Mossy Oak Break-Up camo finish providing a level of concealment for turkey and waterfowl hunting or for spending an afternoon in the dove field.

The gun’s most important feature is a stock with a 13-inch length of pull that is perfect for young or smaller stature shooters, guaranteeing a more comfortable fit and allowing them to better handle the recoil of stout turkey and waterfowl loads. And with the shorter 21-inch barrel length and reduced weight of 61/2 pounds, this Model 11-87 provides balance and easy-handling characteristics.

The Model 11-87 Sportsman Youth Camo in 20 gauge will fit young shooters like a glove and increase their chances at bagging that once-in-a-lifetime trophy. For additional information on this shotgun and other Remington youth firearms, please visit our web site at www.remington.com.

Why in the world would anyone pay the remington price when they could buy the very same gun that has been worked over by Charles Daly @ Wal-Mart for less than half what remington is asking? I did just that and the Daly is not only bulletproof reliable but I got to buy alot of ammo with all the money I saved.
