This one is an early A-5. I was going to leave it as is. Plans change and I'm having it refinished with a nice set of wood from a vintage A-5. The action main spring tube was broken. Which is an easy enough fix. On these older A-5's the tube is screwed in the best way to fix them. Is to sliver solder the tube in so then they will never break. And that would destroy the finish on the tang. So a refinish was in order. I'll post some before and after pix when I get it back. If I'm lucky I should have it back in a month or so.
