Kinematic drive

Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. The Browning A5 relies on recoil from the kinetic energy of a fired shell to power the new Kinematic Drive System. Recoil-operated autoloaders are tried and true, and now perfected by the company that broke ground first with autoloading shotguns. The beauty of Kinematic Drive is the simplicity of design that provides consistent, reliable function with any load and under the full extremes of weather, temperature, moisture and grime.
We believe the new Kinematic Drive is so reliable that the A5 is the first ever autoloading shotgun to carry a 100,000-round or five-year guarantee.


This gun is designed to work, come hell or high water. Operation is cleaner because gases are sent out the barrel and away from the action. There’s also extreme load versatility. The extensively tested Kinematic Drive offers reliable performance with virtually all loads down to 7⁄8 ouncelight target with no adjustments.
