Just bought my first Auto 5, a 12 ga magnum and it came with two barrels. I only want the shorter one, so the full choke VR 29 1/2" 3" chamber extra barrel needs to find a good home. This can be yours for $300 or trade for a 24/26" VR 3" Japanese barrel. Offers considered.
The bluing is 100% except for a 3/8" spot on the left rear of the barrel and a 3/4 inch blueless spot on the left barrel band just forward of the barrel extension. Looks like somebody polished off these spots; it is not pitted and should spot blue easily. Also, there are two thin typical forearm rub lines. There are several dark spots on the barrel front mouth normally polished surface that should polish off easily. There is some very light red oxide on the barrel extension. The red oxide on the barrel extension is that typical of storage and will clean easily leaving only a darker stain. The barrel is marked with the usual Browning words and "Made in Belgium" on the left. The right side reads: ...* Special Steel-12 gauge shells 3"... The bore is bright with not rings, pitts or anything that should not be there. The barrel mouth mikes at 0.690 +/- as near as my micrometer can read. Barrel has the following number on the rear left end "VL 11485".
The pictures seem to show many more marks and dings in bluing than are actually there. But to ensure satisfaction, following initial payment, I will ship to you for approval. If you approve, we are done. If you do not want it, return it and I will refund shipping both ways as well as the purchase price.
Note: I will be out of town July 25-31. It this sells, I will contact the buyer as soon as possible after Sat. July 31. I apologize for the inconvenience.
