Browning A5 for sale
While the Browning A5 Ultimate Semi-Auto Shotgun may resemble your grandfather’s “humpback” Auto-5, Browning has made significant improvements on the inside, transforming the Browning 12 gauge into a fast-cycling, versatile, recoil-operated shotgun. The A5 retains the functional receiver profile of the old humpback Auto-5, which extends the length of your sight plane for easier target acquisition and more accurate shooting, but the receiver is now constructed of rugged, lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, reducing the overall weight of the shotgun to that of the old Auto-5. The A5 Ultimate was designed by Browning with a gloss-finished Grade III Turkish walnut stock and forearm. The 22 LPI checkering is both functional and attractive, and the recoil pad features Inflex II Technology to withstand the pounding of magnum loads. The satin-finished alloy receiver is engraved with exquisite game scenes. A vent rib and fiber-optic front sight enable you to maximize the A5’s long sight plane through positive swing and follow-through. The A5 is equipped with state-of-the-art Invector-DS (Double Seal) interchangeable choke tubes that feature threaded muzzle ends and a brass seal at the other end to keep dirt and fouling gases out while keeping the threads surprisingly clean. Without adjustment, the Browning Kinematic Drive System cycles the Browning A5 ultimate flawlessly under any load. The rugged design of the A5, combined with all of its enhanced features, ensures exceptional performance in all conditions.
Performance Enhancement. The combination of high-grade maple and engraved nickel is stunning, especially when paired with the Browning A5 Magnum’s sharp lines and handsome styling. The Ultimate Maple is the finest A5 ever produced, ready to fulfill your desire for a shotgun that looks as good as it performs.
Constructing on The Legend. The original Browning A5 Ultimate is revered as a hunting and shooting sports legend. Though this A5 shares only the name and humpback receiver profile with John M. Browning’s original autoloader, these new guns continue their namesake’s legacy of dependability and performance.
The Humpback whale is effective. While the new Browning A5’s humpback-shaped receiver may evoke fond memories, make no mistake: this is not your grandfather’s shotgun. The Kinematic Drive System transforms the A5 into the world’s most reliable, fastest cycling, most balanced, and softest shooting recoil-operated autoloader.
Kinematic Propulsion. Kinetic energy, in its simplest form, is the energy of motion. With its powerful, short recoil-operated Kinematic Drive System, the new Browning A5 magnum makes better use of kinetic energy. Kinematic Drive captures and converts recoil energy into the mechanical motion required to operate the action. This is a tried and true concept that has been perfected by the company that pioneered autoloading shotguns. The beauty of Kinematic Drive is its simplicity of design, which enables consistent, reliable operation under all conditions of weather, temperature, moisture, and grime. This gun is designed to function in the face of adversity. The operation is completely clean, as gases are expelled from the barrel and away from the action. Additionally, there is a high degree of load versatility. The extensively tested Kinematic Drive provides consistent performance with virtually any load down to 1-ounce field loads without requiring adjustment.
