browning auto 5 assembly

I just came across a Browning a5 mag. I took it apart, and I'm not sure what order the bronze ring and friction ring go back on.
I read something about the bronze ring warping if its in the wrong spot.

This is how I put it back together. correct?

No the diagram is no longer there. My dad always complained because it did not cycle shells. I think he did say something about having to shoot heavy loads through it for it not to jam.
So the way I re-assembled it is correct for heavy loads?
light loads the friction ring would be on the other side of the spring, correct?

Hello,
I am new to the forum and ran across this post. I have a similar issue with my A500G. I know it's not an A5, but would either of you be able to help. I posted in the Browning forum:

Need help with Browning A500G
I have an A500G 12 gauge. It has been very reliable and I shoot mostly skeet with it. I performed a routine cleaning of the gas system, but when I went to reassemble it, I had a flat washer I couldn't place. It doesn't show up on the expanded view drawing in the manual and it's not mentioned at all in the reassembly directions. The washer fits over the magazine tube perfectly, but I don't know if it goes before or after the sleeve bar, gas piston, or gas cylinder. Any ideas?

I'd be happy to add pics if it would help.

Thanks!

I wish the A500G had as nice a schematic drawing as the A5 above....
Anyway, I posted a pic in my original post in the Browning forum.: Need help with Browning A500G

Thanks!
