    FN/Browning A5 26"+ barrel 12ga

    I know nothing about shotguns....but I was given the above mentioned firearm. The serial number start with "FN" which does not match Browning's serial number range. I called Browning customer support and they confirmed that the serial number does not match US serial numbers...so I called Belgium and FN confirmed the shotgun was purchased directly from the factory by the original owner and imported into the US by said original owner.

    Gun is in excellent condition. Will post pix later.

    It has an Aluminum receiver which is not common in US A5's. FN Belgium confirmed that the shotgun was special ordered.

    What would be the value of this gun? I can't find examples on Gunbroker with an Aluminum receiver.

    What is the most common use of this shotgun? Quail hunting???

    It comes with an extra barrel.


    Thanks. Maybe I will start Quail hunting.

    Finally dug the gun out of the safe. The barrel length is actually 26+ inches vs 20".

    Here are pics I took early this morning.
