Hastings replacement wadlock barrel for the Browning Auto 5

  • 12ga
  • 3" magnum chamber
  • 28" length
  • wadlock rifling
  • vent rib
  • Hastings CT II choke tube system
  • satin finish

This is not for use on Browning Auto 5 2-3/4" receivers.  Unlike the traditional smoothbore barrel, each barrel is designed with six straight lands and .005" deep grooves that run the length of the bore. This prevents wad and shot charge from spinning, which in turn greatly reduces the number of flyer shots and stray pellets. You should see a 7-10% improvement in pattern density.

Note: These replacement barrels are for the classic Auto 5 and will not fit A5's current production.  

These barrels will fit 98% of the Browning Auto 5 guns.  Due to some minor variations in the Browning Auto 5 guns, occasionally, a barrel will need minor fitting.  Most fitting issues occur with guns made before 1960.  If you receive a barrel that needs fitting, you have the following choice:

1.  Return the barrel.  Please call or email us before returning the barrel.  Any shipping and insurance costs cannot be refunded.  Return shipping costs are the customer's responsibility.

2.  Have a professional gunsmith fit the barrel for your gun.  The gunsmith will need both your gun and the barrel.  The cost of fitting is the customer's responsibility.

Once a barrel is fired or fitted, it is not returnable.

I have A Browning A5 Magnum that was born the same year I was, 1971. It came with two Belgium made barrels, one modified and one full. The modified barrel seems to have been dropped or damaged somehow at the crown, and it has the limitation of not being able to handle steel shot for ducks. I finally broke down and bought a Hastings barrel to make my gun more %u201Call purpose.%u201D After a weekend of shooting some clays, I am blown away by the accuracy, performance and looks of this barrel. Quite simply, it is perfect. It has made my A5 more versatile and capable than I ever thought possible. My only regret is not having bought this sooner. I would have enjoyed my gun even more, which is something I would not have considered possible before.
