Browning A5. Come Hell or High Water.
BROWNING A5 OVERVIEW
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. And 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.

THE RIGHT SHAPE
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 and more accurate shooting.
It is much like the difference in accuracy between a pistol and an open sight rifle. The longer site plane of a rifle aids in keeping you on the target by making it easier for you to make the mostly-instinctive changes to sight alignment as you try to stay on the target. And it works. The longer sight plane of the A5 does the same -- helping you to reduced movement along the sight plane as you swing and pull the trigger. The extra-long, flat sight plane was unique to the original A5 and it is back today.
