Just was gifted a Browning sweet 16 from my dad. Basically new and perhaps fired one box of shells total in its life. Serial number is S 84531. I was going to get some shells and give it a whirl to insure proper function. I wanted to confirm year of manufacture. 1957?

First, welcome to Shotgunworld!

Next, congratulations on successfully interpreting Goad’s chart. 1957 was a good year for Auto-5’s. One thing to remember, a lot of parts were changed a year later, so if yours breaks, you may need to scrounge. Since it’s practically new, that’s years in the future.
