So I picked this 50s vintage A5 up a few years ago for about $150. it had been neglected and was filthy as heck and had a cracked stock and a severely damaged barrel that had been cut. So i got a ramline stock and cut the barrel back to where it was safe and shot it a lot. it ran ok but i wanted to do more

It took a while to gather the parts but i found new wood ( the butt i found had already been cut), I sent the barrel to Briley and had a bead and thin wall choke installed. Another friend refinished the wood with a nice oil finish and i had a decelerator installed and had the stock cut short. Not knowing how many thousands of rounds this thing had in it, I had every spring replaced and new friction ring and completely cleaned the inside. I decided the leave the metal bluing in the well used and carried state its in. with the Modified choke from Briley, it patterns very well.

here she is. my new Clyde Barrow commemorative. barrel is 18.3 and overall length is 35.
pretty handy little home defense gun. sorry to any A5 purists who are offended.
