Needing little introduction the Browning A5 is one of the most iconic shotguns ever designed. With its humpback receiver design, the Browning Auto-5 is instantly recognizable and with more than 2.7 million made, it is a common sight both in the wild and the more manicured lawns of Skeet and Trap lines!
This Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen is Belgium made in 1964, before salt became an issue. With a vented 27 1/2" barrel with full choke and weighing just over 7lb, it carries like a 20 gauge but delivers more like a twelve. It's the Sweetspot many wish to land in and this is your chance. Exhibiting a factory perfect bore and equally top notch factory bluing, this gun has the desired long tang and round knob configuration with fine checkering on nicely figured French walnut complimented by excellent engraving and capped with an original Browning art nouveau buttplate on a 14 1/4" stock. With a wonderful trigger breaking cleanly at 3.25lb, this A5 ticks all the boxes.
Considered by many to be the Goldilocks of the Auto-5 line of shotguns as everything is 'just right', it is built to be rugged and will just keep on going. This sweetheart Auto 5 is in beautiful 99% factory original condition so will not last long. Act fast and make it yours today!
