You are asking yourself, what does this new Browning Maxus autoloading shotgun have that makes it unique to all others. After all, isn't it just another autoloader?
No, it is just not another autoloader, and yes, it has features unlike any of the competitors. It is lighter because the receiver is strong, lightweight aluminum alloy. Therefore, it is more durable, easier swinging, easier carrying than a heavy steel shotgun. If you've carried a shotgun in the field for any amount of hours, you'll appreciate the thinking in aluminum receivers. The profile of the gun is low with optimal dimensions. What does this mean?
Simply that the Maxus has a trim forearm and a close radius pistol grip. This helps in gripping the shotgun, providing more comfort, more control because of a better feel to the hands. The drop and cast can be adjusted to your personal specs with the included stock shim kit. The ability to fit the Maxus to your own measurements and dimensions is extremely valuable. It makes it your shotgun because it fits you better. Take the low rib. It lies low to the top of the receiver and barrel. When you point and sight on the target, this means you sight along a flat Point of Impact. Where you point is where you shoot. No guessing, no compensation. Remember to follow-through and you'll bring down more birds.
The patented Turnkey Magazine Plug System allows accesss to the plug in seconds using a vehicle key. This allows the magazine plug itself to be removed in mere seconds and reinstalled just as easily.
The new Speedlock Forearm eliminates the bulky, knurled cap at the end of the forearm. With the Speedlock, simply lift the latch and remove the forearm. It's off! Take the rest of the gun apart, clean the gas system and you're in business again. If you need to adapt the magazine plug, it's easily done with a car key in seconds. Shotguns can be designed to not kick so hard. When you reduce weight in a firearm, recoil from a fired shell must go somewhere, and it's usually into your soft shoulder. The Maxus' Power Drive Gas System helps a great deal here. The piston design has oversized gas ports, dumping excess gases faster on heavy loads and a 20% longer stroke travel to be more reliable with the lighter loads. And, the system stays cleaner because of less powder and residue accumulation prevented by the piston's larger holes and the enclosed steel design.
As for the recoil pad, it nearly defies the laws of physics. The Inflex Technology recoil pad is very, very soft. It actually directs the force of recoil downward and away from your face with every shot. Sounds impossible? No. You must fire the Maxus, examine the recoil pad to discover it yourself. This feature alone makes the Maxus the best choice in autoloading shotguns for shooting a lot of game or clays all day long.Your first reaction, whether you are a seasoned hunter, trap or sporting clays shooter, or just a novice will be, "Wow", that recoil wasn't bad at all!"

MAXIMUM RELIABILITY. MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE.
Real-world reliability is the most important feature any manufacturer can build into a firearm. That’s why it was the first priority when we set about developing the Browning Maxus. The Power Drive Gas System is designed to perform under harsh hunting and shooting conditions with a wide array of loads. But reliability isn’t the whole story. The Maxus delivers 18% less felt recoil for greater comfort, 44% less muzzle jump for more accurate follow-up shots, 19% faster bolt speed and 24% faster locktime than the nearest competitor. Unequalled reliability and features, all found in the finest, most reliable gas-operated autoloader ever to swing on a bird.
|The traditional screw-on magazine cap has been replaced with the patented Speed Lock Forearm. This secure forearm attachment system makes taking down the Maxus for cleaning or storage fast and makes attaching or removing the sling a snap. Read more...|
THE SOFTEST SHOOTING AUTOLOADER EVER
Felt recoil is more than just an instantaneous peak force; it is the total energy absorbing experience when you fire a shell. While no recoil reduction system can escape the laws of physics, the Maxus will change your mind about recoil control. The Power Drive Gas System, Inflex Technology recoil pad, back-boring and natural Browning balance combine to transfer up to 18% less total felt recoil force to your shoulder than other autoloaders on the market.
LESS MUZZLE JUMP
Less felt recoil means less muzzle jump and that instantly translates into more birds in your bag. The Power Drive Gas System works perfectly with the Inflex Technology recoil pad to reduce muzzle jump as much as 44% compared to the competition.
|A great feeling trigger isn’t just for the rifle crowd. The Lightning Trigger is the finest fire control system ever offered in an autoloading shotgun. It is designed to offer a smooth, crisp feel with minimal travel. With locktimes averaging .0052 seconds, the Lightning Trigger is 24% faster than the nearest competing autoloader, making every pull perfect. It’s also easy to remove for cleaning. Read more...|
|The Power Drive Gas System is the finest gas system on any autoloading shotgun ever. Extensive research and testing have produced a piston design that is extremely reliable in all conditions, regardless of the heavy or light loads being used. The gas piston features larger exhaust ports that dump gases faster with heavy loads to control recoil and 20% longer stroke travel to increase reliability with light loads. A patented, enclosed seal design keeps residue out of the action for cleaner operation. Maxus with Power Drive equals outstanding performance. Read more...|
