Hi, I am new to this forum so go easy if I break any protocols. I inherited a Browning A-5 from my grandfather, the serial number on the side is B26654 which if I am correct places its manufacturing date between 1940-46 by Remington. I have been told not to shoot steel out of it due to barrell damage, but my question is , could I buy a modern barrell that would allow me to shoot steal? I would really like to get an improved barrell for duck hunting. The current full choke is a bit too tight for the flooded timber hunting that I do. Thanks for any info and help.
