Browning's New Maxus Semi-Automatic Shotgun

Browning's New Maxus Semi-Automatic Shotgun

The Most Reliable, Softest Shooting Autoloader?

Morgan, Utah — Since the introduction of the Auto-5 more than a century ago, Browning has been at the forefront of semi-auto shotgun design. For 2009 Browning continues this long tradition with the introduction of the all new Maxus autoloading shotgun. Several innovative technologies combine to make the Maxus deliver up to 18% less felt recoil for greater comfort, 44% less muzzle jump for more accurate follow-up shots, plus 19% faster bolt speed and 24% faster locktime than the nearest competitor.

Power Drive Gas System. The new Power Drive Gas System on the Maxus features a new gas piston design that has larger exhaust ports to dump gases faster on heavy loads. An all new patented, enclosed seal design keeps residue out of the action for cleaner operation. The piston has a 20% longer stroke travel to be even more reliable with light loads.


Inflex Technology Recoil Pad. Browning's new Inflex Technology recoil pad is the softest pad on any autoloader. More than a mass of recoil absorbing material, it has been engineered with directional deflection to pull the comb down and away from the face of the shooter with every shot for even greater comfort and faster follow-up shooting.

Lightning Trigger System. The new Lightning Trigger System featured on the Maxus is designed to offer a smooth, crisp feel with minimal travel. With locktimes averaging .0052 seconds, the Lightning Trigger is 24% faster than the nearest competing autoloader, making every pull perfect. It is also easy to remove for cleaning.

Vector Pro Lengthened Forcing Cone. Vector Pro features extended forcing cones that are over 2" longer than other systems. The taper is much more gradual than the industry specification for even less shot deformation resulting in more uniform and consistent patterns. The Vector Pro geometry completely eliminates any step or double taper between the chamber and bore.


Speed Lock Forearm. With the new Maxus, Browning engineers have eliminated the traditional bulky screw-on magazine cap and replaced it with the patent-pending Speed Lock Forearm. This secure forearm attachment system makes taking down the Maxus for cleaning or storage faster and easier than ever before, and makes attaching or removing a sling a snap. By simply lifting a lever, the forearm is easily removed.


Speed Load Plus. Browning's new patent-pending feeding system sends the first shell loaded into the magazine directly into the chamber. Now, unloading is just as easy with the Maxus. The speed unload feature makes emptying the magazine fast and easy, without having to cycle and chamber every shell with the bolt handle.

Turnkey Magazine Plug. The Maxus features the patent-pending Turnkey Magazine Plug that makes removing the plug simple by using any vehicle key. Combined with the Speed Lock System, the magazine plug can be removed from the Maxus in mere seconds.

The new Lightning Trigger System featured on the Maxus is designed to offer a smooth, crisp feel with minimal travel.

The new Browning Maxus will be offered in 12 gauge only in 3" and 3 ½" models. The receiver is made of strong, lightweight aluminum alloy. The barrels have a lightweight profile design with flat ventilated rib. The composite stock has a close radius pistol grip with in-molded textured gripping and Browning's proven Dura-Touch Armor Coating for a sure hold and sleek feel in all climate conditions. Average weight on the new Maxus is 6 lbs. 14 oz. The Browning Maxus comes equipped with a magazine cut-off to allow the shooter to easily unload the chamber to change loads without cycling a shell from the magazine.

Browning Maxus Stalker models Suggested Retail, $1,199.00 in 3" and $1,379.00 in 3 ½" with 26" or 28" barrels. The Maxus Mossy Oak Duck Blind models Suggested Retail, $1,339.00 in 3" and $1,499.00 in 3 ½" with 26" or 28" barrels.
