Browning A5 Shotgun Now With 3.5″ Super Magnum 12 Gauge Chamber

Browning’s recoil operated A5 Shotgun is now available with a super magnum 3.5″ chamber. The company says that it should be able to cycle a wide range of loads. The help mitigate the recoil, an improved recoil pad will be installed.

From the press release …

The recoil-operated Kinematic Drive system allows the A5 to cycle a wide range of loads. The A5 features the Vector-Pro lengthened forcing cone and the new Invector-DS choke tube system to deliver tight, consistent shot patterns. To reduce felt recoil, the A5 comes with an Inflex II recoil pad.

A5 3½” models are available with barrel lengths of 26″, 28″ and 30″. Composite-stock models feature Dura-Touch Armor Coating that gives shooters a better grip in wet hunting conditions.  The A5 Hunter features a gloss finish walnut stock.

The MSRP of the 3.5″ version will be $1599 for the A5 Stalker (black/synthetic) and $1699 for the A5 Hunter (wood) and camouflage range (Mossy Oak and Realtree) .

    Steve, the new A5s do not have recoiling barrels of the old.
    They are Browning-made benellis.

    so the hump back is a marketing ploy why should we care about a shotgun that pretends to be old school quality but instead just rips off the other modern design

    • Steve (TFB Editor)

      Post fixed. Thanks.

      • Samuel Suggs

  • floppyscience

    Meh, I’m still waiting for the “Browning A5 shotgun, now with A5 guts”.

    • Samuel Suggs

      I really dont care if they do or dont make it again their are better lighter designs out there but I dont want them to pretend like they did bye just sota repliating the look

      • floppyscience

        Exactly. Either bring back the A5 or don’t, but don’t throw something else in an A5-ish shell and sell it as an A5.
