Built like a workhorse, finished like a beauty queen. The Browning A5 has proven itself since it's introduction to be reliable in just about any weather and situation you're willing to endure. But just because it epitomizes utility, that doesn't mean it can't be gorgeous. The High Grade Hunter exemplifies the rich deep bluing and high grade wood that Browning is known for.
Building on The Legend. The original Browning Auto-5 is considered to be nothing less than a legend in the hunting and shooting sports. Though the new A5 shares only the name and humpback receiver profile with John M. Browning's original autoloader, these new 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.
Guaranteed. The Browning A5 is sure to become a classic in its own right, with a short-recoil operated action that is so reliable we back it with a 5 year/100,000 round guarantee — come hell or high water.
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.
