Does anyone know if there are any tube magazine extensions and flashlight mounts available for the Browning A-5?

Thanks in advance,

Hello there and welcome to our Shotgunworld Tactical shotgun forum and I beleive can help you some I will try to anyways. Now I do`nt know if they still make them but at one time Choate machine and tool was making combat shotgun magazine extention for browning auto 5`s you might could try them out I beleeive they have a web site it you will type in their name in a web serch thing it should give your the web address to get in touch with them. Now as for flash light attachmenst do`nt know if they ever had one of thoes for the browning auto 5. Now with that extension though if you get one make sure you do`nt make the mistake of also getting a barel magazine tube clamp that goes around the tub mag and barrle and holds them together like you have seen with other tactical shotguns for the borwning auto 5 is a recoil operated shotgun that has to have it`s barrle move a little in the recoil operation of the shotgun for it to work reliably and if there is anything that holds that still or slows it down and like cause any undue friction that isn`t suspose to be that that will cause your shotgun to not function reliably and to jam and all that bad things you do`nt want to happen in the proper function of your shotgun.
So if you do add a combat mag extention on your browning auto 5 you will need to just screw it on the magazine and let it hang there without a mag clamp going around it and the barrel.
Another place you can look is if you can get you a shotgun news in there you can find this one company that sells things under the name Swat I beleive that are shotgun mag extention but I beleive they are made by Choate machine and tool and just sold under the Swat name.

Anyways hopes this helps you out some and once again welcome to our forum visit often you can learn all sorts of things here and sometims even see a few shotgun bargains and such and just a good frinedly place to hang out and read what others have posted on here.......

Hello again and I hope you are having a good day. I think I have some more help for you I went ahead and looked it up for where I saw that about a shotgun combat magazine tub extention for browning auto-5`s , I got out one of my old Shotgun News issues that I have and looked it up and found it. Looks like the name of the company is Quality Parts CO. they sell Bushmaster firearms and parts but they also sell other things like rifle and shotgun synthetic stocks and things of that nature.They also sell combat magazine tub extentions for pump action and semi-auto shotguns. Their web address is http://www.bushmaster.com and their phone number is toll free 1-800-998-SWAT the numbers for swat if you do`nt want to look at the letters on your phone are 7928 their fax number is 1-207-892-8068 anyways you can get in touch with them and you could even request one of their 80 page catalogs free upon your request.

Another place you might could get in touch with that makes combat tub mag extentions that might work with the browning auto-5 would be Briley Manufacturing they have tub mag extention that i Know work with the browning gold and the winchester super x and benelli and remington shotguns so they might be able to help you with your browning auto-5. theit phone number is (713)932-6995 to ask for technical help like asking if they would have a tub mag extention for browning auto -5`s or maybe if they do`nt have one but maybe they could make you one all they would really need to do is make the tub and thread it right to mach up with the threads on the end of your tub mag after you tack the end cap off and then also of coarse have the rigth length of magazine spring and a good mag spring follower and then you are good to go.

Well anyways I think one of both of these places will more then likely be able to help you out and get you all set up nice and pretty .Hope this helps you out and get out there and ejoy shotting that browning auto -5 some more and pactice practice practice.The you get to have double the use out of a fine old shotgun you get to have fun practicing with it and if you have too hope you wont have to but if you had to use it to defend yourself and your family with it then you would more then be plenty prepared to handle the situation.

Have a good day and always try to be prepared.
