    Default Auto-5 ID help

    Does anyone have the Auto-5 book that details the Serial #'s and years? I inherited an Belgium FN made, Auto-5, Twenty. Serial # has an "OZ" followed by "45124" below.

    I looked on the Browning website but I don't see any reference to the "OZ" part of the stamp.

    Just curious what year I'm looking at here.

    Need to clean it up a bit, but it's in fairly good shape.

    The A-5 info I have, the Light Twenty made with serial numbers starting with zero (o)Z, indicates 1960 manufacture. They don’t give any other numbers for each year. So, if yours is a 20ga it is likely made in 1960.
