A5 Ultimate Sweet Sixteen
There was a time when most shotguns could be considered a piece of artwork. They featured hand-fitted parts, richly blued steel and hand finished walnut. Today, times have changed and most shotguns sold are considered working guns with composite stocks and camouflage finishes. Even though the A5 Ultimate Sweet Sixteen is graced with a level of artistry equal to the days of old, it is still a Browning, making it a working gun with a panache that few others can match.
The A5 Ultimate Sweet Sixteen is a gem of an autoloading shotgun, featuring the combination of high-performance, short-recoil operation with beauty of a gloss oil finish on the walnut stock and satin nickel finish on the engraved receiver. Stylish checkering enhances the appearance, as well as the grip.
The in-between 16 is known as “The Gentleman’s Gauge.” To many hunters, the 16 gauge is the ideal ammunition for the perfect gun. A well-designed 16 gauge is closer in weight to a 20 gauge, with a shot payload nearer the 12 gauge, and patterning that bests them both. Like its most revered predecessor, the Browning A5 16 gauge is built on a smaller, lighter receiver for reduced weight and a sleek feel in your hands. It also benefits from the advantages of Total Barrel Dynamics and the Invector-DS choke tube system to extract the most performance from this revered gauge. The humpback receiver profile increases the length of the sighting plane to give you the same advantage the first Auto 5s were famous for. Pick up an A5 Sweet Sixteen and see how sweet it is.
In its simplest term, kinetic energy is the energy of motion. The Browning A5 makes better use of kinetic energy with its powerful, short recoil-operated Kinematic Drive System. Kinematic Drive harnesses recoil energy and converts it into the mechanical motion needed to operate the action. This concept is tried and true, and now perfected by the company that broke ground first with autoloading shotguns. The beauty of Kinematic Drive is the simplicity of design for consistent, reliable function with a wide variety of loads and under the full extremes of weather, temperature, moisture and grime. This gun is designed to work, come hell or high water. Operation is clean because gases are sent out the barrel and away from the action.
