1953 Browning A5, Light Twelve, solid rib Barrel. Came in for a full re-blue, customer advised there were no function problems, but it has not been shot for an extended period of time. Fully disassembled, sonic cleaned, pre-boiled, media blasted, de-greased. Then slow rust blued with Brownells Classic Rust Blue, boiling & carding after every cycle. Finished off with two cycles of DicropanT4 accelerated rust blue and oil soaked for 24 hours. Due to its age, I did advise the customer to let me change out a few parts that were suspect. New Action Spring, Trigger Spring, Magazine Tube Spring and Recoil Spring. For any full re-blue, I put in a new A5 Screw Kit. The Carrier Screws, Front & Rear Trigger Plate Screws all have to have the indent for the Locking Screws milled out with a 3/16” or 1/4” End Mill Bit. Test fired, it’s good to go.
