According to the Browning website;

It is a 1969

1968-76 In 1969 Browning started using two digits for the date of manufacture which was followed by a four digit code that identified the type of Auto-5:

M=standard weight

G=light weight

This was then followed by the serial number beginning with 1000.

Example: 69G1000 = A 1969 Auto-5 Lightweight 12 ga.. shotgun with a serial number of 1000. M-standard weight

G=light weight

I have 70G 44331 and it is a Light Twelve (engraved) and state on the barrel that it was made in Belgium. I'm trying to find a value too.

AnswerBeing that you called it a "light twelve" (a Japanese made) and not an "auto 5 lightweight" (made in Belgium) it was introduced from Japan in 1975. I'm sorry I don't have a book with me to show production date based on your serial number. But the book I have reflecting prices as of 2002 (and they haven't change too drastically since) shows 500 for exc condition, 400 very good, 300 good and 250 for fair. I have one of these myself and love it.
