Grand Passage MAX5
Here is the terror of all wildfowl and pest birds! The A5 is back this year, still in 12/89 and equipped with its famous Invector DS chokes but now with the Cerakote coating: the barrel, receiver and breech handle have all been treated with this ceramic-based technology that protects them against natural wear and corrosion. Moreover, its Camo Max 5 composite gunstock and fore-end continue to make it the duck and pigeon shooter’s ideal companion!
In 2013, the legendary Auto-5 made its return, and with it, came an all-new mechanical system. The A5 has the same look as its illustrious forebear, but the new Kinematic Drive System makes it so reliable that Browning gave it a 100,000-round warranty! It also lost no time in matching the success of its predecessor. Browning is adding to the range in 2016 with the launch of the… 16-gauge version. And the least we can say is that the A5 One Sweet 16 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 A5 One Sweet 16 is also surprisingly soft. This is a real gentleman’s gun; it comes in three barrel lengths (66, 71 and 76 cm) and with two Invector DS chokes. You could say that the A5 One Sweet 16 successfully conjures up a magical mix of the traditional and the modern.
The semi-automatic A5 needs no introduction and the starter version goes from strength to strength with these two 12 Super Magnum models that will blend perfectly into the hunting environment with excellent shooting performance. These heirs to the legend come with two Invector DS chokes and a very affordable price tag. They are destined to be a hit on the marsh, in the hide and in woodland.
A blend of innovative technology and aesthetic appeal. The nickel-plated receiver features finely engraved partridges in flight. The A5 is also impressively specced, with a Back-bored Vector Pro Investor DSbarrel, Inflex II recoil pad and the new Kinematic Drive System. The grade-3 walnut stock has an oil-rubbed finished.
