Browning’s New High Grade Hunter A5 Shotgun – The original Auto-5 shotgun, designed by John M. Browning, is a legend in the hunting and shooting industry.

Although the original design is no longer produced, Browning’s introduction of the new A5 a few years ago filled the demand of shooters wanting a shotgun built in the classic design of the Auto-5.

In 2016, Browning added to the A5 line with the introduction of the A5 Sweet Sixteen. The new gun brought back memories for many shooters and hunters of the days of shooting the original Sweet 16 Auto-5 in upland and small game fields. The new model was an instant success with many consumers.

New for 2017, Browning is expanding the line to include the A5 High Grade Hunter. This new 12-gauge model features special engraving that depicts pheasants on the left side and mallards on the right side, all surrounded by intricate scrollwork on a blued finish. The stock is Grade 2.5 walnut with sharp 22 lines-per-inch checkering and a rich gloss finish. Available in 26” or 28” barrel lengths, the suggested retail price is $1,859.99.
