The lighter single barrel makes the semi-automatic easier to manage particularly for those with a smaller build.
American John Browning developed the Auto-5, the first mass-produced semi-automatic shotgun in 1898 and patented in 1900. The design was produced continually for almost 100 years with production not ending until 1998.
Gaining in popularity with elements within the shooting fraternity feeling these versions are misunderstood, there are significant advantages to choosing this option. The single barrel makes it lighter to manage therefore more controllable as well as having lower recoil so can be a great choice for beginners and those of a slighter build.
Just like there double-barrelled counterparts, semi-autos are available in the usual bore sizes and with a variety of chokes. In the UK, the magazine tube is restricted to allow only two cartridges with a third in the chamber, allowing for three shots. Many semi-auto owners put safety flags in the loading slot since they don’t open like a ‘break action’ double-barrelled shotgun. European and American versions are most popular notably Remington and Beretta although Turkish versions are gaining ground.
