Waterfowling firearms are constantly being modifed to improve performance under extreme conditions. Check out these new firearms for 2012-2013 waterfowl season.
Browning's New A5s Are Guaranteed to Please
The venerable Auto-5 is back, but don't be confused by the unmistakable humpback receiver—this is not your grandpa's shotgun. Browning has rebuilt the A5 from the inside out. The company is so sure that the new bells and whistles are mistake proof that it is offering a five-year (or up to 100,000 rounds) guarantee. Start with the Kinematic Drive System, which captures the recoil energy and converts it into mechanical motion to operate the action. All cartridges, from light trap to heavy waterfowl loads, are guaranteed to cycle without a hitch. Back-bored to reduce felt recoil and maximize pellet velocity, the A5 is available in 12-gauge only, with 26-, 28-, and 30-inch barrels. Weight ranges from 6 pounds 11 ounces to 6 pounds 15 ounces. The A5 Hunter features a gloss-finish walnut stock and forearm. The A5 Stalker is available with Dura-Touch Armor coating on the stock and forearm and your choice of black, Mossy Oak Duck Blind, and Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity finishes. Accessories include three Invector choke tubes with either model.
But that's not all that's new from Browning this year. Those in the market for an over/under should take a look at the 725 Citori, available in 12-gauge with either 26- or 28-inch barrels. browning.com
