Browning A5 Loading Port job 3 gun

Browning A5 for 3 Gun

My Stoeger M3500 is so easy to load, but reliability has been a bit hit or miss. The long, 3.5″ inertial action cycles with 3.5″ goose loads just fine, but struggled with lighter weight target loads, so I was looking at a new shotgun. I ended up buying a Browning A5 Stalker and wanted to […]

Browning A5 Review

The Browning Auto-5 was the original semi automatic shotgun. While the old shotgun ran on a long recoil system, the new A5 runs on a Benelli-esque inertial system that Browning calls their “Kinematic Drive”. Browning LOVES giving every feature a name.

Pardus SS Review

So, this shotgun is almost the same as the Pardus SL. So much so, that I’m ONLY showing differences in this review. Primarily, this shotgun uses dual action bars, a front recoil spring on the magazine tube, and a bolt lockup that is closer to the breach than the SL. The action uses an aluminum […]
