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.”

Weatherby Range Certified
program now includes
the Mark V Accumark

(GunReports.com) — Weatherby features “Range Certified” accuracy assurance in its Mark V rifle line with the new Accumark RC, which comes with a SUB-MOA guarantee as well as a factory-shot target signed by company President Ed Weatherby.

Mark V Accumark RC rifles are tested at Weatherby’s modern indoor range. Range technicians mount premium optics, boresight and test fire each rifle to determine the most accurate load using the Oehler Research 83 Ballistic Imaging System.

After testing, the rifle is cleaned and packed with the target signed by Ed Weatherby. Each rifle sports a special RC engraved floorplate.

“Our Range Certified program now includes the Mark V Accumark, one of our most popular rifles among hunters and shooters,” Ed Weatherby commented. “The Mark V Accumark RC is certainly one of the most accurate production rifles available today.”

All RC rifles are guaranteed to shoot SUB-MOA (a three-shot group of .99-inch or less) with specified Weatherby factory or premium ammunition.

The Mark V Accumark RC offers multiple accuracy-enhancing features, including a hand-laminated raised comb Monte Carlo composite stock with matte gel coat finish and spiderweb accents.

It also features a button-rifled #3 contour stainless steel fluted barrel. The barrel, which comes in 24-, 26- and 28-inch lengths depending on caliber, is free floated and topped with a recessed target crown. A Pachmayr Decelerator pad on the buttstock helps reduce felt recoil.

A CNC-machined 6061 T-6 aluminum bedding plate provides a solid, stable platform for the barreled action. The trigger is factory tuned and fully adjustable.

The Mark V Accumark RC is available in 14 calibers: .240 Wby. Mag., .270 Win., .308 Win., .30-06 Springfield, .257 Wby. Mag., .270 Wby. Mag., 7mm Rem. Mag., 7mm Wby. Mag., .300 Win. Mag., .300 Wby. Mag., .30-378 Wby. Mag., .338-378 Wby. Mag., .340 Wby. Mag. and .338 Lapua. Additional calibers and left-hand models are available through the Weatherby Custom Shop.

Manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $2,400 for all calibers except for the .30-378 Wby. Mag., .338-378 Wby. Mag and .338 Lapua, which are $2,700. For more information, contact a local Weatherby dealer, call the company at (805) 227-2600 or visit www.Weatherby.com.

The most accurate factory rifle I have ever owned was a Fibermark in 7mm Weatherby mag. It would shoot any ammunition (I tried) under half an inch (3 shot groups), including "cheapo" Remington 175 gr Core-Lokts. I got stupid one day and sold it. I sure miss that rifle.
