I have a 1958 era A-5 Light 12-- I'd like to replace the std. magazine cap with the series having the swiveling QD sling clip attaching feature- any good ideas where to find one- used is ok-if the threads are not boogered-- Also, a friend has one like mine, and he claims the design and metallurgy is sufficient that he has fired 3" shells in his without any firing or functioning issues?? Comments?? RWTF

Thanks- should have thought about good old EX-LAX-BAY. Problem is- those schmucks want either a credit card, or a Pal-Pay thingy-neither of which I care to use- I prefer CIF or a USPS Money Order-less room for fraud- Now as to the M12 issue- In the 1938 Salesman's WRA Catalog- they mentioned that one can send a std. 12 ga. Model 12 back to the factory to be re-chambered for a 3 inch long shell-I'm a bit curious as to whether anyone ever had that done. The fact that the WRA designers felt their std. M12 would "stand the gaff"- back then is belied by the proof load tests their great M21 withstood circa 1930. As I have 2 12 bores that will handle 3" Magnum loads One is a 1940 M12 Heavy Duck, the other ain't) I am not going to try a 3" load in my Light12 A-5 (like, like a M-1 Garand is light)-- just wonderin' is all.

oR, WHY NOT--?? Like to see the design prints for both nthe Belgian A-5 Light 12 and the 3" magnum version- looking for differences in barrel NBD's, and also wall thickness-s of the receivers, difference in recoil springs, etc. Just to learn- NO way would I fire a longer than chamber length shell in any shotgun--RWTF
