    especially the revised A5 and the B725. I'm also afraid I'll be getting the checkbook out for one or both!! The 725 really looks interesting with it's lighter barrels, low profile, but non Cynergy receiver, and the new mechanical triggers. It's suggested retail price is also lower than the current 625 by almost $800 bucks. But, the new A5 could be the real sleeper!

    We'll see!!

    I hear ya. I'm chomping at the bit to see how they took half the manufacturing cost out of the venerable Auto-5, which sold well as originally designed for most of a century.

    My checkbook stands ready to invest in modern day cheapness.

    The new A5, according to Browning, is recoil operated and other than the shape of the reciever shares shares nothing incommon with the old A5. Can`t imagine why they would even use the old name for it, it`s a completly different gun.

    Must be going after the Benelli crowd as they already have a gas gun.

    It doesn't really look the same.

    thank goodness it has nothing to do with the old gun. A classic yes, but compared to the newer guns a large paperweight. I want the new one...

    In the video on Brownings web sight they show it being fired, looks like it has a stationary barrel to. It will be interesting to compare it side by side to the Maxis.

    the barrel doesn't move like the original A5. This is an inertia gun, just like a Benelli. Only, much better looking IMO...
