This is not your average shotgun. The Browning Maxus Sporting shotgun is one of the lightest weight and lightest recoiling shotguns on the market. 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. It would be impossible to find an auto loading shotgun for the field with such shooter friendly features as the Browning Maxus. It would be especially difficult to find a shotgun with more style with the deeply finished look of carbon fiber on this Maxus shotgun.
