What model is this for? The serial number is not a Auto-5 number of Browning Arms Co. What model is this for?
Your serial number does not match any Browning Arms Co Auto 5 gun in 12ga. Check the serial and model and ask again. Thank you
They were made in the 1930s and there is no serial list by year. These are NOT Brownings but were made for the SEARS store by various makers, but not the Browning Arms Co. It was built on Brownings patent and made by Stevens.
Need more detail. Generally $400 to $800 range
No way to tell. The sn you list does not follow the standard Browning system listed here http://www.browning.com/customerservice/dategun/detail.asp?id=13
I would contact browning arms at there web site.they have a place to date your browning firearm.
You can try the Browning Arms Co. Website. To get an answer here, we would need to know the model and if this is a complete serial number.
The letters PM in the middle of your serial number indicates that your browning was made in 1980.If you wish to include the model name of your browning I could help with the value of your browning.
$500-$800. Provided it's still in original condition. No pads or poly chokes
Your serial number indicates that your Browning auto-5 sweet sixteen model shotgun was made in Belgium by FN for Browning in the year 1961.
== == S.N. info from this era gun is sketchy at best, this is the info from the Browning website: First 10,000 shipped to U.S. Marked with "BROWNING AUTOMATIC ARMS CO. OGDEN UTAH-U.S.A." Very few serial number records remain. This is odd because I have a gun w/ serial number 71h307 and it has that very marking on the barrel (perhaps the barrel was changed). supposedly the serial numbers ran from 1 - 228,000 from the years 1903 - 1939(again from the browning website).
Acier special means Special steel, and barrels marked this way are only on FN sales guns, not Browning Arms Co. FN produced the guns for sale outside the US and were not imported to be sold by the Browning Co. Providing this is the complete serial number without a letter above or preceding the number, then this gun was made in 1907. It is an FN Auto-5, not a Browning Arms Company A5. The FN version is mechanically the same as the Browning version, but markings and finish may be different.
If this is the complete serial number on the gun, it was made in 1923. Often serial numbers are misread. Check to see if it has a letter above or preceding the 27071. If it does, please restate and ask the question again. If 27071 is the complete serial number, it was made in 1923. Now the question: Is it a Browning Arms Co Gun, or an FN gun? If an FN gun, it will say "acier special" on the Barrrel. Acier special means Special steel, and barrels marked this way are only on FN sales guns, not Browning. If the barrel is acier special, then FN produced the gun for sale outside the US and was not imported to be sold by the Browning Co. If this is one of the first Browning Arms Co guns, it should say "Browning Arms Co Ogden Utah on the barrel. This gun would be one of the shotguns that was first sold to the Browning Arms Co in 1923. Importation was very limited to Browning from FN until serial 22538 16ga was shipped to Browning in July of 1923. The highest serial number shipped in 1923 was 28400. If this is what you have, then this shotgun certainly has a place in history as one of the first Browning 16ga Auto 5's that came to America.
Impossible to answer without a detalied description of all features and markings.
This serial number is too high to be the Browning High Power. What model is it? It may be an FN model under brownings patent, but not a Browning arms Co gun. Please be specific about the model and ask again.
If this was all the number there was, then the gun was made in 1903 and the barrel says: "Browning Automatic Arms Co." If not, then the serial number has a letter or letter and number above the four digits which will identify it. Check and ask again if this is the case.
its a 1910 16 gauge not a 12
