I need the locking block recess on the barrel extension of an older browning auto 5 lengthened and was wondering if anyone knows a competent gunsmith that knows what they're doing? Finding a good one is like searchin for a needle in a haystack. Thanks

Larry Pockrus or Scott Mayse. Old school "gunsmiths"

Aaron/TDK in Newark Texas,

Exactly what makes you think you need to lengthen the locking block?

Check out the thread I started here. It's the locking block recess in the barrel extension that needs lengthening. If you have any thoughts or suggestions I'd love to hear them.

Ditto on Larry. He's in Krum or thereabouts. Been there a few times and always does a good job.

I would still use Aaron, take both barrels to him. Aaron is as good as it gets and the kid is reasonable and honest. Every thing Aaron has done for me has been perfection, kid is talented.

But for Auto-5s I would actually use Art's in Peveley, Missouri. I have had him work on no less than a dozen Auto-5s and each one came back perfect and quickly. Did you install the 2 piece lifter? If you didn't, you can and you will have speed load like the '54 on Auto-5s.

It's an old Browning. It goes to Art's.

I did install the two piece lifter. Bought the parts from Midwest gun parts. Works like a charm. Yeah, arts is the probably the best choice but honestly this is not too difficult and I'd like it done fairly quick. If I had the tools I could do it myself. How often is Aron on this forum? I'll shoot him a message.

I don't know what he normally charges, but he quoted me over double what everybody else did to cut and thread a barrel, and was pretty rude on the phone.

Buzz, Is Scott still around? I haven't talked to him in years. Last time I saw him he was working out of his house. I always liked him.

I would still call Aaron, he restored my 28ga Citori and the guy I got it from couldn't believe it was the same gun. He goes by TDK here on the forum.
