Hi folks,

Has anyone had a look at the Browning Maxus II and the "new" endcap?

Does anyone know what thread that is and whether it will accept extension tubes from people like Nordic? (Not sure what the key lock is like if it can be removed, either)

I am looking for a gas operated semi-auto for 2 purposes:

1) Hunting for waterfowl and slugs for pigs
2) Shooting sports where you have to start with 6 in the gun so might

So, anyone who has seen one, that would be great.

Scrummy

It's too early. Browning says "We won’t have these until the end of May." It is a poor choice for slugs, as the .742 in. barrel is problematic.

Thanks Randy, anything you would recommend in particular? Also, what bore should I be ideally looking for using Brenneke type slugs?

You've got ribs on the slug, so any standard .725 - 729 bore works well.

Nordic gives you your options here: https://nordiccomp.com/mxt-fit-guide/ .

Normally I use a muzzleloader for hogs. The only smoothbore I've used for a wild pig was a year ago, in Turkey.
