1932. You are probably asking about the shell length, not caliber. A 16 gauge of this vintage was probably chambered for 2 9/16 inch (67.5 mm) shells but may have been modified to 2 3/4 (70 mm). I THINK all 12 gauge A5's had 2 3/4 inch chambers. A gunsmith probably wouldn't even charge you for measuring the chamber. Let him advise you on the use of steel or synthetic shot after he has examined the gun.

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.
This serial number is incorrect. There are a few possibilities as to what the correct number may be by guessing, but it would be better to recheck and ask the question again.

It is not however a sweet 16, but a standard weight American Auto5. this serial number represents a gun made in 1945. auto5man
A5 is an abbreviation for Automatic-5 or "Auto5". A5 is the model. As far as the variation, there are lightweight versions in three guages and a magnum version in 12 & 20. You can identify by the serial number.

This should be an Auto5 12ga Magnum. We can tell this by the letter "V" in the serial number. However, there has to be a number before the V, which doesent show in your serial number. Are you sure the V is stamped the same way the 640970 is stamped? Could this be a 6V40970? In any case the number is incorrect. Please re-check and ask the question again. Thank you
