Need the serial number to verify, barrel choke? Removable chokes? But in all honesty, less than $500, more like less than $400 for me.

The owner is adamant that it's a Japanese gun, and it has a fixed modified choke

I sold a Japanese A5 - Light 12, a shooter, but in excellent overall condition with the early style invector chokes for $550. I never got a single offer when I had it priced at $600 and above. This was about a year ago.

Hi all, new to this so i hope im in the right place. I have a Browning A5 12ga with a sn of 2216** with FN stamp above. From what ive found online its a 30's era gun but what gets me it says "Browning 3 Shot" on the hand guard. I have 2 other A5's and its totally different. Has anyone heard of the 3 shot? Any help would be great.

The 3 Shot first appeared in the 1932 Browning brochure. It was made to comply with the new US 1935 Waterfowl regulations. It was made until the Germans took over the factory. Of course, it was replaced by the magazine plug or adapter in the 5 shot models when FN re-took control of their factory. Unusual gun, hang on to it.

All the sn's match and it has not been altered. Hope it's worth at least what I paid for it! Thanks for the info. I have to call the Browning historian on wed and find out more.

I spoke with the Browning historian and he said it was made in 39 but after the war they only sold the 3 shots to servicemen. He said it's one of the last made before the war. Heading out to run some lead down the barrel.
