#SundayGunday: Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen

by
posted on February 26, 2017

Back in 2012, Browning resurrected the Humpback design with its new “A5” line. Though the name paid obvious tribute to the original Auto-5’s, the A5 line was something entirely new. Among other things, it featured an inertia-driven action that Browning calls a “Kinematic drive.” The new A5s were well received, so in 2016 Browning decided to take a chance on reviving another old favorite—and the A5 Sweet 16 was born. It captures every bit of the famous design, but in a gauge that has brought back more than a few sweet memories for hunters across the country.
