Overview

Time-honored performance. If you're a hunter, you know that “Sweet Sixteen” holds the significance of referencing the Browning Auto-5 in 16 gauge — one of the most reliable, best handling and popular shotugns in history.  

Often called the “Gentleman’s Gauge,” the in-between 16 gauge is, to many hunters, the ideal ammunition for the perfect gun. A well designed 16 gauge is closer in weight to a 20 gauge, with a shot payload nearer the 12 gauge, and patterning that bests them both. Like its most revered predecessor, a Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen is built on a smaller, lighter receiver for reduced weight and a sleeker feel in your hands. It also benefits from the advantages of Total Barrel Dynamics and the Invector-DS choke tube system to extract the most performance from this revered gauge. The humpback receiver profile increases the length of the sighting plane to give you the same advantage the first Auto 5s were famous for. Pick up an A5 Sweet Sixteen and see how sweet it is. 

An even sweeter version. This high grade model features a gloss black receiver with intricate scrollwork including pheasant and mallard engraving. A beautiful Grade AAA gloss finish maple stock with sharp 18 lines-per-inch checkering is impossible to overlook.

Building on The Legend. The original Browning Auto-5 is considered to be nothing less than a legend in the hunting and shooting sports. The A5 has proven itself since it's introduction to be reliable in just about any weather and situation you're willing to endure. Although the A5 shares only the name and humpback receiver profile with John M. Browning's original autoloader, these guns build on the legacy of reliability and performance earned by their namesake.  

The humpback advantage. Don't be confused by the humpback receiver profile, this isn't your grandpa's Auto-5. But the long sighting plane will give you the same sighting advantage the first Auto 5s were famous for. This time in a high-performance shotgun design that uses inertia to perfect autoloader reliability.

The Kinematic Drive. 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. 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.
