Browning billed the Recoilless as "the first and only shotgun design that actually eliminates recoil," making it comfortable and enjoying to shoot all day. The Recoilless' design consists of an inner mechanism composted of an inner receiver, bolt, striker system, and barrel. The inner mechanism is driven forward, inside of an outer receiver by a drive spring when the firing mechanism is cocked and released, an action which requires the large portion of the shotgun's recoil force. After firing, the inner mechanism recoils to the rear while compressing the drive spring until it strikes the buffer in the inner receiver, absorbing the additional recoil. Because the Recoilless is designed as a trap gun, there is no manual safety. This shotgun fires trap loads only and features an adjustable high post ventilated rib, front and rear white bead sights, an adjustable recoil pad, and a modified choke tube. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
