SHOT Show 2016 – Browning pushes again on its successful A5 hunting shotgun, introducing some new variants, among which we find also a 16 gauge version: the new Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen hunting shotgun.
In 2013, the legendary Browning A5 made its return, and with it, came an all-new mechanical system. The A5 keeps the same look of the original gun, but the new Browning Kinematic Drive System makes it so reliable that Browning grants it a 100,000-round warranty.
During the past 3 years, the new Browning A5 has received a great acceptance, renewing the success of its predecessor. For this reason, in 2016 Browning is introducing some new models with different finishes - mostly designed for the US market - , but one of these attracts for more than just the look: the new Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen hunting shotgun version is 16 gauge!
The least we can say about the new Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen shotgun is that it has some seriously strong points in its favor. Its weight is closer to a 20-gauge, making it more wieldy. But it’s also similar to the 12-gauge in that its barrel can bear a range of loads. The recoil of the Browning A5 Sweet 16 is also surprisingly soft, what makes it a real gentleman’s gun
The new Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen successfully mixes up traditional look with modern mechanical concepts and comes in two barrel lengths (66 and 71 cm) and two Invector DS chokes.
