Built on a smaller, lighter frame, the Sweet Sixteen will feel sleek in your hands. See how sweet the Sweet Sixteen truly is.
ACQUIRE THE HUMPBACK ACQUISITION ADVANTAGE
Browning didn't only put the humback-shaped receiver on the A5 for nostalgia, they did it to extend the sight plane to assist hunters in natural sight alignment and for more accurate shots. It does this by reducing movement along the sight plane as you swing and pull the trigger. The extremely long, flat sight plane was unique to the original A5, and now it's back.
LESS RECOIL WITH KINEMATIC DRIVETM SYSTEM
The Kinematic Drive uses the energy created by the recoil and converts it to the mechanical motion required to operate the action. It's a tried and true concept, and it's been perfected by Browning. The great thing about Kinematic Drive is it's consistent and reliable with any load and continues to work under extreme weather, temperature, moisture and grime.

Browning spent the time necessary to make sure the A5 is incredibly balanced from the pad to the muzzle. You'll notice that it immediately feels right in your hands. It's light and can swing fast to line up your shot. The forearm is narrow and compact allow your front hand to be closet to the bore line. This will give you better pointability and hand-eye coordination.
