What can you tell me about the A5 Ultimate?
Where are they made?
Barrel lengths ?
Does anyone on here have one? Or know someone who does and have shot it?
Kinda interested.
Thank you in advance.

I can't tell you anything about it, but the Browning website can. It won't answer all your questions but you'll know more than you apparently know, now.

As the Vette Jockey said, check out the Browning web site, but also Google "Browning A5 Reviews" for some pros and cons. The new A5 is an inertia system like the Benelli's. I'm sure it's a good gun, but I'm a little put off by the cosmetic resemblance to the original A5. It's not an A5 and should have been given it's own name and it's own look. JMO.

I stopped calling the Auto-5 an A5 when this thing came out. Even GunBroker differentiates them that way now.

I think browning should have gone further down the alphabet and went with the K5 " Kinematic 5 " . their name for the recoiling action of the bolt . I will say over all not a bad gun from my experience with one . I much prefer the Maxus for its softer felt recoil .

I have an ultimate, nib 26 inch, when they first came out I bought it, it has xxx wood, still nib never shot it, but a nice looking gun, fine checkering, oil finish, pretty engraving/etching, satin nickel receiver.

I don't have the Ultimate version, but I have two of the new A5s -- one a camo version, the other one of the Wicked Wing models. I've been very pleased with both of them -- it's a great semi-auto. I think the Ultimate version differs only in the cosmetics.

I have already been to the web sight. Pretty generic on the info.
Looking for an owner. Have specific questions.
Thanks again for all the responses.

I own an Browning A5 Ultimate. It is my go-to pheasant and goose gun. With its 26 inch barrel it is responsive, balanced, and smooth. The lumber draws attention to itself, fun to glower over. At the same time of owning the A5, I had a Browning Maxus with a 30 inch pipe, using it primarily for skeet. It was slow to swing, a bit sedate. A 28 inch version would have been better. It too was gifted with gorgeous wood. Nice gun, but nothing to own if it didn't swing well. It went out the door. I own a 1969 blonde Sweet 16. Love the gun equally as much as my 12 A5.
