A5 CLASSIC ULTIMATE BECASSE 16
The A5 is built on History. This heir to the world's first semi-auto shotgun, the legend-ary Auto-5, now comes in a 16-gauge version that combines the effectiveness of the 12 gauge with the light weight of the 20 gauge. Active hunters know their stuff and are giving this gauge a new lease of life. Woodcock hunters will appreciate the engraving of the golden-brown bird on the nickel-plated receiver. This shotgun is available with a 26- or 28-inch barrel.
Our confidence in the new A5 is such that we offer a waranty of 100,000 shots or 7 years with it.
Our patented Speed Load Plus system chambers the first round straight from the magazine, and unloads quickly without having to run the bolt to chamber each shell.
The system accumulates recoil energy and converts it into a mechanical movement for actuating moving parts. The beauty of the “Kinematic Drive” system resides in its simplicity of design, which enables it to operate in a regular, reliable way, with any type of load, and under all extreme conditions of weather, temperature, moisture or fouling.
The 3 benefits of the Back-bored™ barrel are: increase in speed and penetration, improvement of patterning, and less recoil.
"DS" stands for double-seal, our proprietary differential-banded brass seal. It compresses against the barrel wall to keep the choke tube threads clean and makes installation and removal easier than any other muzzle thread system.
This ultra flexible recoil pad provides the best recoil absorption possible on a gun. The exclusive design and material used promote a downward deviation of the direction of the recoil forces, thus pulling the stock slightly away from your face in order to reduce the recoil and upward motion of the gun. 4 pads are available: 12mm, 20mm, 25mm or 32mm. This makes it easy to adjust the length of your stock.
Made from lightweight, aeronautic quality aluminium alloy, the A5’s receiver is sturdy and its characteristic shape is much more than a nostalgic return to the past. The receiver’s familiar humpback shape fits perfectly with the rib for lengthening your line of sight and in this way helps you to aim naturally with faster targeting.
