I sincerely hope you like it. Let us know how it shoots. With an inertia action, square back receiver, and tightly curved pistol grip it's not for me, but hey, that's why they build dozens of different styles. Browning does build some very good guns in my opinion.

My cousin has one of the older Browning A5's and I had the pleasure, or should I say displeasure, of shooting it once. I'm not recoil sensitive, but that thing kicked like a mule on steroids, much worse than my 870 or 500. Not sure if the new ones are any different, but if not, then it's not for me.

It does look really nice though. Let us know how it shoots.

Slugo,

That is one sweet looking shotgun!
I had a Browning AUTO 5 in 20 Ga. some years back. It was a great little shotgun but was sensitive to extreme cold. Like Fox hunting in Indiana in Jan-Feb. But still a great shotgun overall. It was a pleasure to shoot and I learned to like the hump back as they were nicknamed. Since when getting your cheek weld you did not need to duck your head down to get aligned.

Default the new A5 is only the same in name...

the original A5 was a hard charging recoil gun where when fired the entire barrel recoiled back into the receiver. The new A5 was made to look like the original with its hump back receiver. That's where it ends. The new model uses a similar inertia action found in the Benelli line of shotguns...

Since the original Benelli patents expired you would figure it was just a matter of time. Be interesting to see how they can do without the hokey two-piece stocks and all the over the top beating snakes off and paddling the boat with it advertising. And of course the "rougher looking the better" users that a lot of younger hunters apparently aspire to these days. Not saying it isn't extremely effective. They have sold a lot of guns that are not that expensive to make comparatively speaking for a pretty penny. Wonder if Browning will stick them in the freezer overnite before they ship for some crio engineering benefits too.

Yeah, that's it. I always thought it was strange how the barrel recoiled, and is probably why it recoiled so sharply. I really like the looks of them though and may have to check out one of the new ones since they changed the system.
