Many Benelli's are known to have the Benelli "click". Does the new A5 have a Browning "click"?

You had better hope it does, or something else to keep it from firing if it doesn't go cleanly, completely into battery.

Same for any auto loader.
Not good to go "bang" without being there!

Ok. Let's ask it different way. Does the New A5 have issues of not going into battery as many of the Benelli's do at times? Or is the Browning version of the inertia system less prone to have the not going into battery problem than the Benelli's?

Any "turn head" for want of a better term for the moment, bolt can have problems with going fully into battery, depending on machine tolerances, dirt, etc, etc.

So, what to do?
Make the tolerances bigger?

It's a trade off.

Sloppy or an occasional failure to seat completely?

Lastly, has there yet been enough time passed to make a judgement on the Browning?

Unless they have come up with some sort of "hold closed" device, (even more complexity), the very design is easy to "come back, out of battery" any way.

"Sloppy" would make it even more so.

Has anyone who owns the New A5 experienced the gun being out of battery when it came time to shoot?

I am only roughly 250 rounds through a new A5 with no issues. I have a late model Benelli Super Vinci with no issues either for that matter.

It cycles fast for an inertia gun; the bolt goes back into battery with more authority than some.

Mine's been absolutely flawless, even with light loads.

I was just showing my hunting buddy this issue. I noticed that if you slowly release the bolt ,on the new A5, it will not go fully into battery, but it will still fire. I'll keep this in mind while trying to be quite on pheasant hunts.
If you simple release it, it doesn't have a problem. I can't imagine this will be a issue while cycling rounds.

You don't imagine that there will be a problem if it fires while "out of battery"?

I mean I shouldn't have this problem under normal operation. If it does occur, I'm not sure what will happen. I played around with my Beretta 1201F, which is pretty similar and it behaved the same when I lightly release the bolt. I've used it for many years and never had a problem.

That was my point, early on in this thread!

If it's not in battery, you WANT it to go "click" NOT bang!

Just last evening a friend, (game warden), was showing pictures of the results of a Ruger 10/22 that apparently fired while out of battery.

Blew the magazine into many pieces and didn't do the shooter's hand/arm any good either.
Just a lowly .22 rim fire.
