    Browning Maxus Semi-Auto Shotgun

    Browning recently unveiled a new gas-operated semi-automatic shotgun for 2009, the Maxus, which is designed to work well with heavy and light loads, reduce recoil and shoot cleaner.


    The new Power Drive Gas System on the Maxus features a new gas piston design that has 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 percent longer stroke travel to be even more reliable with light loads.

    Recoil is dampened with Browning’s new Inflex Technology recoil pad, which is more than just a mass of recoil material; it has been engineered with directional deflection to pull the comb down and away from the face of the shooter with every shot for even greater comfort and faster follow-up shooting.

    In addition, the Maxus uses a new speed-loading system, as well as a speed unloading feature, which allows the magazine to be unloaded without having to cycle and chamber each shell with the bolt handle.



    The Maxus also features a new turkey magazine plug that makes removing the plug simple by using any vehicle key. Combined with the Speed Lock System, the magazine plug can be removed from the Maxus in mere seconds.

    The autoloader will only be offered in 12 gauge with 3-inch and 3 ˝-inch models. The receiver is made of strong, lightweight aluminum alloy. The barrels have a lightweight profile design with flat ventilated rib. The composite stock has a close radius pistol grip with textured gripping and Browning’s proven Dura-Touch Armor Coating for a sure hold in all weather conditions. Average weight on the new Maxus is just less than 7 pounds.

    The Maxus will retail for a suggested $1,199 in the basic black, 3-inch model, with camo and 3 ˝-inch versions costing more.
