The Autoloader Revolution.
105 years ago, renowned American inventor John M. Browning envisioned the future of shotgun design. He joined with famed Belgian gunmaker Fabrique Nationale to execute his vision in wood and steel.
This shotgun became known as the Auto-5. In the years that have followed, the collaboration between Browning and the craftsmen of Fabrique Nationale has become a legendary partnership, producing some of the finest sporting arms the world has ever seen.
Now, more than a century later, the Browning and Fabrique Nationale are making history again with the all new Browning Maxus autoloading shotgun.
To understand the revolutionary design of the Maxus begin by viewing the video below. Then take a tour of Planet Maxus and dig into the details. We know you won't be disappointed.
The new Power Drive Gas System is the world’s best. Extensive research and testing have resulted in a new piston design that's even more reliable in all conditions, regardless of heavy or light loads being used.
The new gas piston features larger exhaust ports to dump gases faster on heavy loads. An all new patented, enclosed seal design keeps residue out of the action for cleaner operation. The piston has a 20% longer stroke travel to be even more reliable with light loads. Maxus with Power Drive equals outstanding performance.
The Softest Shooting Autoloader Ever.
Felt recoil is more than just an instantaneous peak force, it is the total experience of the shooter absorbing the energy from the fired shot. While no recoil reduction system on a shotgun can escape the laws of physics, the Maxus is sure to change minds about recoil control. The Power Drive Gas System, Inflex Technology recoil pad, Vector Pro, back-boring and natural Browning balance combine to transfer 18% less total recoil force to the shooter than any autoloader on the market.
Less Muzzle Jump.
Less felt recoil means less muzzle jump and that instantly translates into more birds in the bag. The Power Drive Gas System works perfectly with the Inflex Technology recoil pad to reduce muzzle jump as much as 44% compared to the competition. Feel the performance difference the new Maxus makes.
Lightning Trigger System.
It’s hard to beat a good trigger, and the new Lightning Trigger System is the finest ever offered in an autoloading shotgun. The Lightning Trigger is designed to offer a smooth, crisp feel with minimal travel. With locktimes averaging .0052 seconds, the Lighting Trigger is 24% faster than the nearest competing autoloader, making every pull perfect. It’s also easy to remove for cleaning.
