Browning has announced a new-ish shotgun, the A5.
Gun people might recognize it as the old “Auto-5” or Remington model 11. But inside, it ain’t. Instead of a “long recoil” mechanism where the barrel and bolt recoil together (operated by the recoil from the shot), the new A5 operates with a “short recoil” system where only the bolt recoils. The “short recoil” system is what Benelli sells as an “Inertia Driven” system.
I kind of like the way Browning made a Benelli look like an Auto-5. Now if only they’d make a Direct Impingement B.A.R.
