1931 ANSWER: Answer above incorrect, but at one time believed true. If a 12ga, then it was made in 1928. This due to new evidence provided in Shirley's book "The auto-5" if a 16ga, then it was made in 1937. auto5man

Need More information about model. If it is an auto5 than 1950.
you must supply the serial number to determine when your browning was made. ANSWER: THE SERIAL NUMBER IS : 2V 26XXX. THE2V IS ON TOP AND THE 26XXX IS BELOW IT. IN FRONT OF THE MAGAZINE PORT. ( WHERE YOU INSERT THE SHELLS. ) THANK YOU VERY MUCH .with the new information provided your browing auto-5 shotgun was made in 1962.It is also a magnum model(which means it has a 3in chamber).
By this serial number for an Auto5, the gun should be a Light Twelve 12 guage model made in 1956. It is not a Sweet 16.
It shouldn't say light twelve on the barrel, but on the receiver. Light twelve means that the gun is a light weight version of the standard Auto5 shotgun.
Sounds like you have an American made Browning. These were made by Remington under contract for Browning from 1940-49 If this is correct, the serial number is on the left side of the receiver. It is not however a sweet 16, but a standard weight American Auto5. this serial number represents a gun made in 1945. auto5man
