Hello, looking at getting a new shotgun. I’m between three different ones. Either a Browning Wicked Wing Maxus or A5. Would love to hear opinions on both of them. Thank for the help!!!

Both of the ones you listed are great guns.

Maxus- gas operated, invector plus chokes, rounded receiver
A5- inertia operated, invector DS chokes, semi hump receiver

Either one would be a great choice

+1 on the Maxus. No more inertia or recoil operated shotgun for me.

Hello, well the SBE3 is out. I won’t own any firearm made by the red chinese!!!! Yes I’m wanting to hear about both of those Brownings in particular. Honestly I’ve not heard much if anything bad about the Maxus..... I’ve only read a couple of tidbits where the A5’s occasionally have trouble with the 3.5” shells but it doesn’t seem to be all of them. So you tell me....... THANKS

At what? Hunting, hunting what? Clays? There isn't nearly enough info to make any suggestions.

Primarily hunting but when I shoot clays I shoot what I hunt with as well. Geese, ducks, pheasant, quail as far as game.

Both fine guns. If you should decide to consider others, take a look at the Fabarm guns.

I will take a look at the Fabarm as well as the Beretta A400 Xtreme plus which has been recommended to me. Thanks a lot!!

The A400 Xtreme plus is an appealing shotgun with many great features but it weighs ~8 lbs. Not what I would want in hand when chasing pheasant or quail.

I have owned both the Maxus and the new A5. The 28" barrel in the Maxus shoots better for me than the 30" tube because there is too much weight forward of the long receiver on the 30. The inertia system on the A5 works well, not as soft on the shoulder as the Maxus, but felt recoil is subjective. Both work for me. I use the A5 for bird hunting; even with 3" steel shell's the impact was tolerable. I have used the Maxus mostly for skeet. The Ultimate iterations have gorgeous lumber and receivers are more fun than the vanilla Hunters. Both Brownings will last longer than their owners....great guns!

I have a Wicked Wing A5 in 12 ga., 3 inch., which I use for upland, duck and geese hunting. It's been a great field gun. I particularly like the sight plane on the A5 -- it works well for me. I've also used it to shoot skeet on occasion. I have never found the recoil on the A5 to be objectionable.

Several years ago I bought a 30" Maxus field. No complaints about the gun. When looking for a duck/ turkey gun, I lucked into a Macus Atacs AU and bought it at a great price. I shoot both guns well, as yhey fit exactly the same. I would highly recommend the Maxus.

The new A5's just don't do it for me. I will just keep shooting my sweet 16.

Why not a Remington V3. It’s a great gun, IMO.

I agree completely and IMO in its price bracket there is nothing else as well suited for an all around shotgun. There are many models to choose from so that is always helpful.

Yes they are, and developing quite a following it would appear. Sure like mine.
