Best Answer

Acier special means Special steel, and barrels marked this way are only on FN sales guns, not Browning. FN produced the guns for sale outside the US and were not imported to be sold by the Browning Co. If this is the complete serial number and no other letter or code as part of the serial number, then this gun was made in 1920. It is an FN Auto-5, not a Browning Arms Company A5. Value is too difficult to be accurate without seeing the gun. Condition which includes the amount of original finish and original configuration will determine value. Auto 5's with recoil pads (other than Mag 12's) poly-chokes and compensators will reduce value. Recommend taking it to a gun shop for appraisal, but keep in mind that few appraisers know the information and history of the FN guns.

What year is my FN 12 gauge Acier Special Browning A5 type with a serial of 25868?

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.

How old is belgium fn27071 browning 16 gauge shotgun?

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.
