Has anyone owned or shot the new Browning A-5. Would you recommend purchasing one for duck hunting?

A Buddy had a new one break on a SD hunt. My dad has a 90yo belgian which I would trade my benelli for.

I did not know Browning was making these again. I loved the old ones so I'm sure these are pretty nice shooting guns. Makes me wish I would have waited before I bought my maxus last year.

Well, they aren't. It's an interesting new inertia action (like Benelli) gun:

yeah I figured it would be an upgraded action from the old A5. I did not know it was recoil operated (like Benelli). I'd be interested to shoot one of these. I do love my Maxus but these might be pretty nice...
