ELEGANTLY DECEPTIVE
The Maxus Hunter is the epitome of a Browning field gun. Rich bluing, gloss Walnut and a satin nickel finish receiver. It looks beautiful that it's demure appearance masks the superior engineering and ergonomics design that make the Maxus so amazing. Don't let the classic looks fool you into thinking that this is just like every other bird gun in the field. The PowerDrive gas system cycles a wide range of loads and reduces the heaviest and slightest of recoils - making the gun more comfortable to shoot and allowing you to get back on target faster.

The Lightning Trigger has the fastest lock time of any shotgun in its class, reducing the amount of time from trigger squeeze to shell ignition, resulting in more consistent and accurate shots. Whether you're taking rabbits on the ground or chukar and pheasant in the air, the Maxus Hunter looks the part and outperforms the competition.

Additional Product Information

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...
