Depending on the model it can be found on the bottom of the receiver or on the barrel. how to find the year of a belguim browning over and under shotgun by the serial number 53125
Your Browning sweet sixteen auto-5 shotgun was made in the year 1948.
Mismatched gun, and an incomplete serial number on the receiver.
What are the other markings on the barrel? Does the serial number on the bottom of the barrel match the one on the reciever? email@example.com
Please reask the question and include which model this is. Thank you
You have a Belgian Browning Auto-5 16ga, manufactured in 1948. The X-series 16ga were the first factory produced 16ga with 2 3/4" chambers as opposed to the earlier 2 9/16". The barrel address is correct, and since it appears to be serialized to the gun I would imagine it is the original. Please note that it is NOT necessarily a 'Sweet Sixteen.' Browning/FN made a standard-weight 16ga as well, which is what your gun probably is. Value is dependant heavily upon condition. Gray, plain barrel guns with the typical A5 crack on the bottom of the forend rarely bring more than $350, but minty ribbed guns with nice wood can bring up to $1000 to a collector. Originality is a MUST - no reblues, no refinished wood, no cut stocks or recoil pads, no adjustable chokes. firstname.lastname@example.org
I would need a more detailed description of your Browning shotgun including the model name or number,the overall condition of your shotgun,and the bore condition,along with the serial number(to date the manufacturing date) to give you the answer that you seek.
