Operation of the Magazine Cut-off
The magazine cut-off is located at the front end of the left side of the receiver (See Figure 12).
This cut-off has the purpose of locking the shells in the magazine so that they will not feed into the chamber. This permits you quickly to change the load in the chamber of the gun with- out going to the trouble of unloading the whole magazine. In this way a duck load can quickly be taken out and a goose load inserted, if the need arises.
To operate the magazine cut-off, merely pull the cut-off lever back (See Figure 13). This will lock the shells in the magazine. Push the cut-off lever forward when you desire to release the shells in the magazine so that they will feed automati- cally as the gun is fired.
With the magazine cut-off in operation, the chamber empty, and the breech bolt locked in the rearward position, a shell may be instantly delivered from the magazine to the chamber by merely pushing the magazine cut-off forward.
lnvector Interchangeable Choke System
All current Auto-5 shotguns have barrels that are threaded to accept the Browning Invector-Plus Interchangeable Choke System. You may con- firm this by glancing on the right side of your barrel where the specifications are inscribed, and where the choke markings are normally lo- cated. All older Auto-5 models and the Auto-5 Buck Special are conventionally choked. The word, INVECTOR denotes that the barrel is
threaded. The degree of choke tube is indicated twice on each choke tube: Inscribed on the side of the tube, and indicated with a “notch” code on the top rim of the tube. Invector Choke Tubes are made with tempered steel and are fully compatible with all FACTORY AMMUNI- TION (loaded in compliance with SAAMI specifi- cations) including magnum lead and steel shot loads and rifled slug loads.
