Browning Brings Out New Sweet 16 for Waterfowl

First look at the A5 16-gauge shotgun highlighted at SHOT Show 2022.

  • Above: Wildfowl Editor Skip Knowles talks with Rafe Nielsen at SHOT 2022 about the new Browning A5 16-Gauge Waterfowl shotgun.

As the 16-gauge revival keeps making new inroads into the gun safes of 21st Century wingshooters, Browning has brought out a new version of the Sweet 16 A5 semi-autoloading shotgun that is big on classic looks with the company's iconic humpback receiver shape, while delivering the best that modern gun-making can muster for hunters who need performance and reliability.

Featuring a composite stock with Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Habitat camo--the official camo pattern of Ducks Unlimited--the semi-auto shotgun has a fiber-optic sight, is Ergo Balanced, has a recoil-operated Kinematic Drive system to cycle shotshells, and comes with Browning’s Invector-DS Interchangeable choke tubes.

There's a lot to like about this new scattergun from the Utah gunmaker:

  • Ability to custom fit shotgun with spacers for stock fit and length of pull;
  • Nickel Teflon coating of the bolt, bolt slide, shell carrier, cocking handle, and bolt release button;
  • Standard lengthening of the forcing cones to increase pattern performance.

Coming with a five-year, or 100,000-round, guarantee, Browning says that this Sweet 16 will work no matter how harsh the duck blind, goose pit, or cattail pheasant hunting conditions a wingshooter can throw at it.

And with a standard ABS case coming with the shotgun, an Inflex 2 large recoil pad, and 26-inch and 28-inch barrel length options, this Sweet 16 is sure to please whether you’re a member of wingshooting’s old guard or new to the sport.
