    No Thanks.

    Not fond of the vent rib and definitely not the Jap

    I know you think I'm joking, but I repaired a Diawa that every part was nearly identical to the Browning. I also had a Savage on the A5 patent, it was hairy bad about shooting twice each time you pulled the trigger. Mangled squirrels and gave out a few nosebleeds.

    Just curious as to why you shy away from the jap barreled Auto 5?

    Personal preference only. Both my father and grandfather had Belgiums and that's all I've ever been fond of. Has nothing to do with functionality at all

    I've heard that its ok to shoot steel through the Jap barrels but not the Belgium.

    That's correct, good for duck hunting.

    Actually the gun is Belgium made, with a jap barrel.
