Browning Maxus autoloading shotgun is lighter because the receiver is strong, lightweight aluminum alloy. If you've carried a shotgun in the field for any amount of hours, you'll appreciate the thinking in aluminum receivers. The Maxus has a trim forearm and a close radius pistol grip. The drop and cast can be adjusted to your personal specs with the included stock shim kit. It makes it your shotgun because it fits you better. Take the low rib. It lies low to the top of the receiver and barrel.
The Speedlock Forearm eliminates the bulky, knurled cap at the end of the forearm. With the Speedlock, simply lift the latch and remove the forearm. The Maxus' Power Drive Gas System helps a great deal. The piston design has oversized gas ports, dumping excess gases faster on heavy loads and a 20% longer stroke travel. The Inflex Technology recoil pad is very, very soft. It actually directs the force of recoil downward and away from your face with every shot.
