You bought a sweet sixteen like to know age?
Call Browing with the serial number and they can tell you.
Go to Browning.com and you can age your firearm based on the serial number...its a bit complicated to figure out but not too difficult.... Make sure that this serial number is not preceded by an X, or S. If the serial number is only those 5 digits, then you have a standard 16ga made in 1929. Sweet …16's are a lightweight version of the standard 16ga auto 5, but were not made until 1937. Beginning in 1948, FN started to engrave the wording Sweet sixteen in script on the left side of the gun. If this is what your gun has, then if it is an "X70567" it was made in 1952. If the serial number has an "S" above or before the number such as "S70567" then it was made in 1956. If there is any other numbers associated with the serial number, then state a complete description and ask the question again ( Full Answer )
Answer . The Browning Sweet sixteen, will have the words "Sweet Sixteen" stamped or engraved on the receiver after the 1948-1950 time period.. Answer . Prior to Sweet Sixteen being engraved on the legend which is the left side of the receiver, Sweets from 1937-40 and 46-49 are not stamped. …If you have one of these guns, the gun will have a faded gold trigger - not blued. This is the most obvious sign. To be sure remove the forend. If the Barrel ring that slides over the magazine tube has three holes in it, then it is a sweet, providing the barrel serial number matches the receiver. So, check the trigger and barrel. Two other differences can be detected, but it's more info than needed to answer your question. ( Full Answer )
I believe you are missing the letter above or preceding the number. Re-check and re-ask the question.
Answer . \nYour Sweet Sixteen was made in 1961. The 1 designates 1961, the S designates Sweet Sixteen. All auto 5"S were made in Belgium in 1961.. 1961
Answer . Unless a person has the list of guns made and ser.# for each year made called a blue book you cannot tell the exact year. However these were made 1937 to 1976 and then discontinued. they are valued at in good condition at $650 plain barrel, $700 with raised rib, and $800 ventilated rib. …They were Reintroduced in 1987 as the new model and are valued at $475-$500 in real good condition.. Not a Sweet Sixteen . The 'Sweet Sixteen' was introduced into the Browning catalogs in 1936, but your gun was made about five years earlier. It is a standard-weight 16ga Browning Auto-5. It should be either a plain barrel gun or a solid-rib gun. They are not as desireable as the later guns because they have the 2 9/16" chamber which is not compatible with modern ammunition. Still, they can reach $500-$600 in excellent condition. Original, actual 'Sweet Sixteen' guns in excellent condition are routinely bringing $1500 at auction, and even Miroku-made Japanese Sweet Sixteens can be counted on for $900-$1000.. However, yours is a pre-war standard Auto-5 and not a Sweet Sixteen. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nIf that is the complete serial number, it is not a Sweet Sixteen. It is a standard 16ga Auto-5 made in 1928. The Sweet Sixteen was not introduced until 1936.
That serial number was a 16 ga standard weight made in 1928. It was not a sweet 16. Check your serial number again, what is the letter above or preceding the number?
Answer . You are missing a letter either above or preceding the number. Please recheck
Answer . This is not a Sweet 16 gun, but a Standard Weight 16ga made in 1929.. If it was a sweet sixteen, it would say so on the left side of the receiver. In which case it would have an "S" or an "X" above or preceding the number. X-82206 was made in 1953. S-82206 was made in 1957.

By the serial number on the bottom of the receiver. Sometimes the serail will include a letter above the number or a letter/number combo above the number.
Sweet sixteen browning and would like to know the date it was manufactured The serial number is S37088 Also engraved on the side of the receiver is sweet sixteen thank you for your help?
look on the opposite side of the gun, there should be an engraving stating where it was manufactured, if it is Belguim, it was made before 1976, if it was Japan, it could have been made in the late 80s.

Sorry to say, this is not a Sweet 16. A Sweet 16 is a lightweight 16ga made in Belgium and later in Japan. Not all Auto 5 sixteens were lightweight. Many were the standard weight model.. What you have is called an American Browning. These guns were manufactured by Remington in the US (New York) fo…r Browning after Belgium was overun by the Germans in WWII. The guns were made using Remingtons model 11 equipment. A few modifications were made to incorporate more of the Browning features and were all stamped Browning Arms Co. St. Louis Mo. Your 16ga gun sn: A5321 was made and shipped to Browning in 1940. It has the first style engraving pattern, and was one of the first of the American guns made in 16ga. All American made models started at serial number 5000, so you're gun is the 321st gun made by Remington. Congrats on a low serial number. ( Full Answer )
Are you sure its a Sweet 16? If it is, then the serial number is missing a letter associated with the number 80625. It should be something like a "S" or X". Please check and ask the question again.

16 years of age. I think that may be why they call it a sweet sixteen.

I think it's just because it's an age in between youth heading towards adulthood. You're still in the high school age focusing on friends and grades but at the same time beginning to look ahead at the bigger picture like college, relationships, and the future. It's the transition from trick or treat…ing with your parents to going out driving with your friends. In my opinion, it's called "sweet sixteen" because it begins the age of freedom and independence that so many teenagers look forward to. it is a birthday party given to them as a gift ( Full Answer )

The "X" is throwing me off a little bit, but if the only numbers present are 94392 I would have to guess sometime between 1923 and 1940 b/c the sweet 16s were #ed 1-126,175 within this range. Value depends completely on Grade (there were 4 different grade models 1-4, each got a little more detailed …as they progressed with more checkering and inlays), if it had a solid or vent rib, and obviously condition. The value ranges from a Grade 1, no rib, 60% at $250, to a Grade 4 vent rib 100% @ $4,900. Hope this was helpful! ( Full Answer )
