    Browning A5

    Does anyone shoother the new Browning A5 shotgun. Been looking at them and love the look and fit of them. Was wondering how other hunters like or dislike their A5.

    Sweet shooting gun!

    If you plan to use it to shoot 3.5" shells I would 100% recommend selecting a different gun.

    Why? Shoot 3.5s out of my stoeger without the extra recoil reducer.

    I have my two Browning A-5's from the 50's, a light twelve and a magnum. They suit me fine.

    The new A5 will be my next shotgun purchase. Currently shooting a Benelli M2, and am just really not all that impressed. It's a hassle to load and unload, I had to Cerakote the gun because it was going to rust away if not, and it seems to be a little more picky with shotshells than any Browning I've ever owned. I've found myself shooting my old A5 or my Citori quite a bit more, since I bought that M2.
    It's just my opinion, but nothing consistently performs, in any conditions, like Browning shotguns. Buy that gun, and be happy. Also, who needs a 3.5 gun anyways..
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Agree on the Rusting issue on the Benelli shotguns...wow that transpires quickly...lol

    My SBEII I owned kicked like mule and it rusted as fast as anything I have ever seen...

    There is a product called BoeShield which was originally developed by Boeing for aerospace use. It dries to a waxy finish and is one of the best rust preventatives I have used. I tested it by treating dive knives and using them in the Pacific and the Caribbean. On 10-12 day dive trips I never have to retreat a knife during the trip, and no rust. Used my SAKO in Alaska on a bear hunting trip, and despite the ever present salt spray no rust. A couple of other hunters on the trip that were using other rust preventatives were rewarded with rusting guns. Carried by Brownells, and so I am told, by some bicycle shops. Good stuff. Been using it for 20+years. Keeps my Brownings from rusting too.
