If the serial number is on the side of the gun, you do not have a Browning A-5. You have the "American Browning" produced by Remington during WWII. The barrell also does not have "Made in Belgium" on it.

Welcome to SGW ! ! {hs#

FYI, during WWII, when the Germans occupied the FN factory in Belgium for their own uses, Remington slightly modified their similar Model 11 under contract for Browning and labelled them appropriately.

The Remington-made A-5's in 12, 16 & 20 gauges all had a single letter SN prefix (12ga=B; 16gr=A; 20ga=C)

A family heirloom worth shooting now and again.
Worth more in sentiment than dollars.
