found and purchased a new browning a5 the other day. just wondering if anyone else has gotten one and what there opions are on it.  seem like nice gun really light. has a pretty good kick to it i think but shot it 5 times and barrel was really hot not really noticed that on my other guns. is that somethin normal to be excessivly hot?

im in the market to get a new auto for this season. the me know the pros and cons of your new a5 after shoot it some more. hot barrel is normal. if the barrels not hot, your not shootin.

Bought mine about 4 months ago. Very light and shoulders like a dream for me.  Ive shot about 200 rounds of 2 3/4 at the range.(skeet and sporting clays) cycles smooth and quick on those doubles.  I did have a jam while using the quick load feature once but have used it many times since and have had no problems.  Overall I am very happy with the gun and cant wait  to bring out to the blind and put some hard use on it.  Barrel did get hot but nothing i haven't experienced with other shot guns in the past.

ya i agree it shoulders well and the nice deep groove starting the venelated rib is awesome! havent done any clays yet but looking forward to it. is urs a 3.5 inch?

Yes sir.  3.5 inch with a 28 inch barrel. Real tree max-4 camo.  Probably wont be using the 3.5's for any duck hunting, but geese and turkey you bet

It's an inertia driven gun right? Where is the gas going to go- down the barrel. With a gas operated, the gas must go through the piston, so some of the heat is "dissipated" that way. I wouldn't worry about it at all though. I had a Super Black Eagle 2 that would do the same thing.
