The bluebooks dating on A-5s is very good after importation into the U.S. officially started which is 1924 when the serialization chart starts, however there is about 20 years of A-5 production not listed, which appears to be what you have.

A Straight stock has been associated with those early early production guns.

From what I've seen it's a pre 1924 gun probably brought over by individuals or importers in small lots.

I'd estimate your gun to be 1908 -1910..

from what I've been able to discern the ealier A-5's draw prices similar to the other first generation guns . I just browsed some of the classified sites and the boys are trying to get $500 or so out of guns that should be worth $300- $350 (very good condition price)
