  1. A5 Carrier Latch Spring

    Is sx3 new. I had a similar problem with my A5 when I put the sx3 latch spring in it. The spring is really stiff when new it and it pinches the rim of the shell against the receiver preventing it from feeding. Never seemed to effect it when shooting just at intial charging. Has went away with more use.

  3. A5 Carrier Latch Spring

    Rob, after verifying you have a clear firearm, remove the trigger group. Then if look in the bottom loading port you wil see a pin that the shell catch pivots on. If you look inside the receiver you will see a very small groove, in that groove there is a very small cotter pin type clip, which needs to be removed, I sanded down a small Allen wrench to fit in the slot and work it out. Be careful it gets lost easy. The pin will then come out from the bottom you will see the top of the pin in the ejection port. Use a small punch to push it out the bottom, some pressure with a finger on the shell catch assembly may be needed to help free the pin it is under A little spring pressure. After removal the shell catch is free to be removed. It is a two piece unit with a spring in the front and back so it can be tricky at first. You are wanting to replace the spring at the rear of the assembly it is the cone shaped spring. I hope this helps, FYI I am not a gunsmith just pretty mechanically inclined and also had some help from others, so don't get yourself in trouble no shame in getting a gunsmith to help out.
  4. Shotgun Sight Options

    What Dawson sight did you use on the front? I love my 10/22 flip up on my FN wanted to make my A5 just like it.
  5. A5 Carrier Latch Spring

    I installed the Winchester sx3 spring in mine to help with this problem. Brownells has them. Two things that I can add is that the new spring was a little to stiff at first the shell would release from the tube but then get pinched between the receiver and catch not allowing it to feed. But it is breaking in fairly quickly. Also I would suggest getting one or two of those little clips that holds the catch pin in, they have the tendency to take flight during removal or installation.

  7. Thanks for the link very good read. Hopefully they ( TN ) will get some big stick mags to run.
  8. Been thinking of moving to unlimited class for 2017 and have been eyeballing the tooth and nail site regularly. My buddy has one of your 1919s and loves it. The XTR comes in at a better price point but the 1919 has worked up a good Reputation. Just wondering what ya'lls opinion is.
  9. FN SLP Mk1 for Open Division

    I have ran my SLP for years at 12 + 1 with no problem and my friend has shot his for the same at 14 + 1 all Nordic extensions. You can get them to run just fine with the right mag spring. Two downsides are that the 14 + 1 is cumbersome to maneuver and get into dump barrels sometimes. And the SLP has a shorter loading gate compared to some so the speed loaders are a little finicky. Other than that they will shoot anything u feed them.
  10. Had a great match and fun hanging out friends. Got a good draw off the random Am prize table was wondering if anybody else with a FFL item has received them yet.
