Additional Product Information

COME HELL OR HIGH WATER, THE HUMP IS BACK.
NOW IN A 3 1/2" CHAMBER VERSION TOO.

You may notice a family resemblance, but let’s get one thing straight, this ain’t your Grandpa’s Auto-5. In fact, the iconic humpback-shaped receiver is the only thing this new Browning autoloader shares with its legendary namesake. The all new Browning A5 is built to be the most reliable, fastest cycling, best performing and softest shooting recoil-operated (yes, recoil-operated) autoloader on the planet.

 

The A5 with 3 1/2" chamber.

 

  

100,000 ROUND GUARANTEE -- OR FIVE YEARS.
We are so confident in the A5, we are standing behind it with a 100,000 round or five year guarantee that this shotgun will work, come hell or high water. Standing firmly behind this claim is the ultra-reliable, honed to perfection Kinematic Drive System. Other innovations, like the new Invector-DS choke tube system and Inflex II recoil pad are sure to place the A5 right at the top of the industry. With the recoil-operated A5 and our gas-operated Maxus autoloaders, we are poised to dominate every aspect of the autoloading shotgun market. These two guns compliment one another in the same way lightning goes with thunder, and the way Browning goes with number one.
GET THE HUMPBACK ACQUISITION ADVANTAGE
Built from rugged and lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, the A5 receiver’s shape is more than a throwback for the sake of nostalgia. The familiar humpback receiver profile melds seamlessly with the rib to extend your sight plane, aiding in natural sight alignment for quicker target acquisition.  Read more...
KINEMATIC DRIVE™ SYSTEM
In its simplest term, kinetic energy is the energy of motion. The new Browning A5 makes better use of kinetic energy with its powerful, short recoil-operated Kinematic Drive System. Kinematic Drive harnesses recoil energy and converts it into the mechanical motion needed to operate the action. This concept is tried and true, and now perfected by the company that broke ground first with autoloading shotguns. The beauty of Kinematic Drive is the simplicity of design for consistent, reliable function with any load and under the full extremes of weather, temperature, moisture and grime. We believe the new Kinematic Drive is so reliable that the A5 is the first ever autoloading shotgun to carry a 100,000 round or five year guarantee. This gun is designed to work, come hell or high water. Operation is clean because gases are sent out the barrel and away from the action. There’s also extreme load versatility. The extensively tested Kinematic Drive offers reliable performance with virtually all loads down to 1 ounce field loads with no adjustments. Read more...
ERGO BALANCED
Features and looks are only part of the A5 equation for success. The new A5 feels incredibly balanced in your hands from pad to muzzle. It feels light and swings fast. Put an A5 to the real test by picking one up. The grip is comfortable, and the forearm is compact and narrow, placing your front hand closer to the bore line for superior hand-eye coordination and pointability. Read more...

ERGONOMIC BOLT LATCH
The A5 includes a Bolt Latch located just ahead of the trigger guard. This handy addition locks the bolt to the rear when the magazine is unloaded and releases a shell from the magazine when the bolt is closed to make loading quick. The oversized shape makes the Bolt Latch easy to locate and operate with or without gloves.
