A worthy successor to the A5, the Browning Gold is one of the most competent, fun-to-shoot, hassle-free semi-autos you can buy. The Browning self-regulating gas system handles a wide range of shells, from magnum to standard, interchangeably. The Gold's speed-loading system sends shells inserted into the magazine while the bolt is locked back immediately into the chamber without any buttons being pushed. The Gold Hunter has a convenient reversible safety and its trigger is more rounded than most, conforming nicely to the shape of the human trigger finger. The Hunter's gas system and recoil pad do a great job of softening the punch, allowing the shooter to fire a few hundred shells without discomfort. This shotgun features a ventilated rib, a front bead sight, a cross-bolt safety, and an improved cylinder choke tube. Its wood and metal are in good condition and its bore is in very good condition.
