Changing the choke on my old A-5. Well it just a bit on the full side, a 28" 12 Ga. browning that I don't want to cut and add anything to the barrell. Seems to me that I could emory clouth the inside of the first two inches to create a wider pattern. I don't need much because I'm hitting dove at 45 yards and missing them at 25. Any suggestions here? Likely a lot more complicated that I expect.

A brake cylinder hone has been the tool of choice for this kind of thing. I have never done it and there may be some tricks of the trade that will help you out. Screwins can be installed as well. The ablility to reach a far bird is an advantage, you get first chance.

I'd see about getting a spare barrel to play with instead of jacking up the one that goes with the shotgun. A-5s don't exactly grow on trees anymore.

send it to briley in texas, they can install any kind of chokes, but OE browning chokes would be the best choice, some of the later humpbacks had them from factory. oh to have a magnum stalker....

If you try and do it yourself you could mess up the point of impact.
If you try and do it yourself you will RUIN the pattern and the POI ! A GOOD choke man can either open the choke for you very reasonably , for example from Full to Improved Cylinder , or install choke tubes . The previous posters were right , Briley Manufacturing in Texas are some of the best ...Tom
