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's Vanguard Deluxe Returns

February 10, 2011

(GunReports.com) -- Weatherby has brought back the Vanguard Deluxe rifle for 2011. Brad Ruddell, Weatherby's vice president of sales and marketing, said, "Initially introduced as the VGX many years ago, this rifle is nearly identical in appearance to our classic Mark V Deluxe and has many of the same features, but costs much less. Like all our Vanguard rifles, its performance is backed by a written accuracy guarantee."

The Vanguard Deluxe features a Monte Carlo-style "semi-fancy" grade walnut stock (gloss finish) with maplewood spacers, and rosewood forend and grip cap. A polished action and high-gloss blued metalwork further enhance the rifle's looks.

Vanguard Deluxe rifles that have serial numbers beginning with the new "VB" prefix will be guaranteed to shoot SUB-MOA (a three-shot group of .99-inch or less) with factory or premium ammunition. Each will feature the new two-stage Match Quality Target Trigger, which has an auxiliary sear for a "creep free" consistent let-off and pre-set sear engagement at .008-.012. The trigger is adjustable for weight of pull down to 2.5 pounds.

Other accuracy-enhancing features include a 24-inch, #2 contour cold hammer-forged 4140 steel barrel with field crown and a Monte Carlo stock capped by a low density recoil pad.
