Did the Belgium Browning A5 with a 8xxx serial number ever have a safety behind the trigger?

By this 4 digit number, the gun was made in 1904, but it would be an FN gun. Sure there isn't a Letter above or preceding the number? Cross Bolt safeties were introduced with some guns in 1951, and standard by 1952. Any Front trigger safety could be converted by the Browning service center to a cross bolt safety.

What year did Browning change from the front safety to the cross-bolt safety on the classic A5 shotgun?

1952 was the first year that FN made Brownings with the cross bolt safety as standard. I have seen a few guns made in 51 with the cross bolt and I have seen at least one 1952 gun with a front trigger safety. Many of the older guns were converted by Browning to switch the front trigger safety to crossbolt. You can tell this if there is a slot in the front of the trigger guard. If the customer paid, he could have a new trigger guard installed along with the conversion, thus it is not possible to date a gun by the safety alone. FN continued the front trigger on their guns that they sold worldwide until the early 60's. These were not Browning Arms Co. guns

I have sweet 16-1948 SN X18xxx that does not have gold trigger has 3 holes in barrel ring and scripted sweet sixteen on left side why no gold trigger?

Answer If the gun has a cross bolt safety, it means that it was converted by Browning. This gun was made with the safety in the front of the trigger guard. Many times the gun would be converted and the new trigger was blued. If your safety is in the front of the trigger guard, then best explanation would be that it was replaced from repair, or that the gun was refinished. A sweet 16 that came from the factory at FN would be rare not to have a gold trigger. The answer is most likely something else besides a mistake from FN. If it's important to you, contact Browning and see if you can have them plate or replace your trigger.

Does a glock have safety?

Yes and no. The Glock does not have an external safety that is operated by the shooter. The safety mechanisms are controlled by the trigger, and function when the trigger is pulled. If the trigger is NOT pulled, the safety mechanisms prevent the firing pin from moving forward and striking the cartridge. However, if a Glock has a cartridge chambered, AND you pull the trigger, the gun WILL fire.

What is the value of a 1969 Sweet Sixteen with a plain barrel gold trigger and a safety in the trigger guard in very good shape?

The safety has always been in the trigger guard of the A5. Early guns had a front-to-rear safety in the front of the trigger guard. Yours should have the later style crossbolt safety behind the trigger. Plain barrel Sweet Sixteens in excellent condition will bring $1000. They drop off fast as they get toward 80% condition. In 'VG' condition, $650.
