Browning Silver Field Micro Midas No. 011412605 20 Gauge

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TESTS GRADE: C
A relatively heavy bolt-retraction effort and a too-short stock didnít meet the expectations of our testers. There is a full-size stock version in the Silver line that adult women might prefer.

Itís hard to fault the Browning on cosmetics or fit and finish. The wood-to-metal fit was nice all over the gun; the checkering was deep and sharp, and the two-tone anodized finish on the receiver was well executed.
The choke package mirrored the Benelliís selection, with IC, Modified, and Full flush-fit tube Invector Plus tubes, along with a choke key (not pictured).
Hereís one of the two problems with the Browning: The shorter Micro stock didnít fit our female shooters. You can see here how the shooterís face is forward toward the receiver. To shoot comfortably, they had to add a slip-on rubber buttpad. Also, the bolt-retraction effort was too high - 19 pounds, almost four times the Benelliís effort.
