Reliable with any type of load, in any extremes of weather and dirt.
The lines of the new A5 will perhaps remind you of its illustrious ancestor, but its lines are the only points this new shotgun has in common with your grand-father's famous Auto 5.
The brand new Browning A5 was developed to be the most reliable and the fastest inertia-operated semi-automatic shotgun and with the lowest recoil sensation.
Our confidence in the new A5 is such that we offer a guarantee of 100,000 shots or 7 years with it.
This reliability guarantee relies above all on the new Kinematic Drive System which is the gun's tireless engine.
Other innovations make the A5 a concentrate of new technologies: The new Invector DS chokes fitted to the new Back-Bored Vector Pro barrels, the Inflex II recoil pad and, lastly, the Speed Load Plus System.
The Invector DS™ Cal 16 chokes offer unrivalled perfomance by providing an optimal length of 72mm, an exclusive internal shape and a patented gas seal segment.
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.
The Inflex II Technology recoil pad is the next generation of the most recoil absorbing pad available. A softer new outer material provides even better recoil absorbing performance and is super slippery to prevent snagging on clothing when shouldering. This second generation has added a new absorbent material that slips perfectly on clothing.
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.
Rapid loading system have been used on Browning semi-automatic shotguns for decades. Our patented Speed Load Plus loading system sends the first shell in the magazine directly into the chamber. In addition, thanks to the rapid unloading system, unloading operations are both simple and fast, without needing to operate the bolt to send each shell into the chamber.
