This gun was made in 1958 which was the first year for the 20ga made in an auto5 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.

Your Browning light weight 20 gauge model auto-5 shotgun was made by the firm FN in Herstal Belguim in the year 1967.These fine made shotguns were available with either the checkered pistol grip round knob (until 1967) or flat knob(1967-1976),this shotgun could also be had with either a plain barrel,or a vent rib barrel configuration.The length of the barrel was either,26in,28in,or 30 inches in length.The firm FN Fabrique Nationale made all Browning auto-5 shotguns from 1903-1976.I hope this info is helpful.
A lot of the time it says made in Belgium on the barrel. Also many A-5's that have a round knob for the stock they are Belgium but that it not a definite. They moved manufacturing to japan in 1976 and they changed their serial number coding. http://www.browning.com/customerservice/dategun/detail.asp?id=13
The A-5 you are referring to is a Light 20. The "Z" denotes Light 20 Gauge (and you can look on the non-bolt side of the receiver and it will be written there). The 0 means it was made in 1960. Your shotgun should have a gold trigger and a round pistol grip. At the top of the magazine cap above the forend you should have 2 rings around it. The factory light 20 A-5 did not come with a pad, but with a butt plate with FN marked on it. If you have questions please call me at Browning Collector There is no "Sweet 20". Go to the Browning website to determine what model you have and determine the date.
The serial number 45987 does not show in any of my sources. The first number begins with 70000. There is one source, Proofhouse.com, which states that before 1958, Browning serial numbers did not contain date or model information, and cannot be dated using the serial number. I would further ask, does your gun actually state 'Hi-Power'? and does it have browning grips or 'FN' [ Fabrique Nationale ] stamped on them? Is the hammer spur or round, does it have fixed or adjustable sights? Is it made in Belgium and assembled in Potugal? All these things may be pieced together to get closer to a manufacting date. John Moses Browning designed this gun, as well as many others such as the Colt Government 1911, but sold the designs or had them made by other companies. FN made most of his guns and FN finally purchased the company in 1977. In 1991 GIAT bought FN -Browning, and they also had some dealings with B.C Miroku [Japan]
The gauge system of sizing shotgun barrels is an old one. It refers to the number of round lead balls in a pound that will fit the inside of the barrel. A 12 gauge shotgun has a barrel that is the size of a round lead ball that is 1/12th of a pound. A 10 gauge, 1/10th of a pound, 16 g, 1/16th of a pound, and so one. The SMALLER the gauge, the larger the barrel. You should note that the .410 is NOT a gauge, but an actual measurement.
