Gold. A proven standard for auto-loading performance. The Active Valve gas operating system does more than offer extreme load versatility, it controls felt recoil before it ever reaches your shoulder, making the Gold one of the softest shooting auto-loaders ever. Speed Loading is exclusive to Browning. With the action open, the first shell inserted into the magazine is sent directly to the chamber, ready to be fired. Subsequent shells are loaded into the magazine. The self-adjusting Active Valve gas system in Gold auto-loaders uses gas from fired shells to operate the action instead of contributing to recoil. When shooting light loads, most of the gases operate the action. With magnum loads, only a small amount of gas is necessary to operate the action, while the remaining gases are vented through the Active Valve and out the top of the forearm and away from the receiver for clean, reliable operation. Because the gas piston and Active Valve operate independently, less pressure is exerted on the gas piston for greater longevity and more efficient operation than other gas-operated auto-loaders. Because the Active Valve expels unnecessary gases, it naturally reduces recoil before it ever reaches your shoulder - without the need for heavy hydraulic recoil dampers, sticky gel pads and gimmicky gel stock inserts. Superior recoil reduction from the Active Valve also equals faster, more accurate follow-up shots and all-day shooting comfort regardless of the loads used.
