Best Answer

If the barrel says"2 3/4 inch shells", don't shoot 3 inch magnums. You might get away with it for several hundred shells, or you may crack the stock or forearm with the next shell you fire. If you want a magnum, go buy one, and save the Auto 5 for pheasants quail, and rabbits.

This is a lightweight 20ga A5 made in 1966. The barrel should be marked for 2 3/4 shells. ***If the barrel is marked for 3" shells then it is not the original barrel. It is not safe to shoot 3" mag shells with the standard receiver.
