The magazine cutoff was on all but the first year (1903 and some 1904) Auto-5’s.


Thanks for the info.

I have an A5 serial number 209xx which should be 1906 DOM. It does not have the mag cut off.

You’re right, I should have said no first year guns, and some 1904-06 guns didn’t have cutoffs. It’s all laid out in Martin’s thread here:

But, as for postwar guns, they all should have cutoffs, and it doesn’t matter which war we’re talking about.

Hello,
HOpefully someone can help me to date my A5?. It is a FN 16GA SN6360 , which should mean it is from 1910-13 but I am a bit confused with the 12GA serialization.

I'd appreciate your assistance.

looks like 1910 to 1912 from the link Rudolph31 sent me, he showed me by the post how that site worked.

Cheers mate, I have now seen the "Serialization" document you refer to.
