Browning Gold Evolve Sporting 12 Gauge 011262428

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

For any clays shooter who's ever appreciated the original Gold, we think you'll just love the Evolve for its fast handling and load flexibility. We do wish Browning had chosen a nicer piece of wood for this gun, as well as extended choke tubes.

The buttstock on the Browning Evolve has a carved wedge that runs from the top of the comb down to the toe. It serves no purpose, but it does contribute to the gun's edgy looks.
The same carved line that appears on the buttstock runs at an opposite angle down the Evolve's forend. Yet rather than feeling awkward to the fingertips of the shooter's forward hand, our testers found it actually provided a natural guide for consistent hand placement.
Even the magazine cap on the Evolve is in keeping with the gun's sleek overall looks.
The Browning Evolve does come with porting, always nice to have when shooting heavier loads, but especially in this semi-automatic with its light weight.
