I found a well used Auto 5 on a auction with mod choke 2 3/4Ē and bad ill fitting wood and a lose rib that needs to be re soldered.

Iím looking for a well used one since I primarily duck hunt and this fits the bill, kinda.

I donít want to pay too much.

Any idea what itís worth and what a rib re solder cost?

Thanks

EXPENSIVE to do rib, and then barrel must be re-blued

wow Mike , things have moved on since the last time I had any of this done !! Gramps 97 (1st yr ) was 100 bucks for the blue at Turnbulls original shop !! Haven't been on their site of late , but Simmons used to have internet specials for rib installation and a complete overdo for something around 1300 bucks . Can't recall if that included a rib removal if needed . Rebuilds are seriously out of my to do range nowadays !!

Loose the rib you dont need it . dont look at the rib look at the duck.

Totally agree. Buy the gun for $200, grind off the rib and reblue it yourself, wipe some Tru Oil on the stock
