I don’t post much here but I’ve learned a lot from this sub. Here is my collection so far.

From front to back.

1949 with mod choke
1947 stealth with mod choke
1944 or 45 post war serviceman gun full choke
1939 with mod choke
1935 with mod choke
1928 with IC choke

My latest find is a 1938 3 shot unmarked Sweet

Now I need a straight stock

I’ve never understood why anyone would hoard so many identical things. It’s sick.

Kinda hard to decide which one to take hunting isn’t it? Still say it’s a good problem to have.

Very nice, I just wish I had the birds that you have there. I’m pretty much stuck with dove hunting and game farms here in Ky.
Awesome collection of brownings.
If I stumble on another straight stock 16 I will pm you.
Truth is now that I found the prototype, if I sell the one you stopped bidding on the other day I will give you first offer at cost. Art will have it back to me next summer.

Thanks I appreciate it. I would love to have that gun if you ever part with it.

It would be a good excuse for dad and I to book the South Dakota trip the guy has on the 16ga site posts and deliver it to you. Never met a guy that enjoys hunting with a sweet 16 that I didn’t like.

Nice collection! Just curious, but how many of them have the 2 9/16" chambers?

Outstanding group of 5A in the proper caliber!!! This style of group therapy keeps me sane.

I am curious about the type of stock lightening on your 1938. Can you pull that butt pad and tell us if it is hollowed out or has the two holes? Thanks

I just came into possession of a 1938 a5 that I am pretty sure is an unmarked sweet. It has the gold trigger, three holes in the barrel ring, hollow buttstock and weighs under seven pounds. Am I correct in assuming that is what it is?

Sounds like it. Post some pics please. Should have visible areas of removed metal where you load it.

In 1938 they had five holes.

Is that the only year with 5? Truthfully I have handled well over 50 16 ga a5 barrels now and have never found one with those 5 holes, kinda frustrating after finding all manor of 16s. Must be damn rare
Barrels!
