I received a 16 gauge Browning shotgun (automatic) from my grandfather in approximately 1960. He told me at the time the gun was quite old. It has a serial number of x2149. I presumed it would be easy to figure out the date of the gun from the serial number online, but so far it has not been easy.

Any ideas of the best way of figuring out the year the gun was made? It is still in near perfect condition and shoots as well as the first day I got it.

Thank you,

Baja

You have a very rare Browning there, enjoy it, it is the third one I have ever heard about in 16gauge.

Sounds like a suicide safety older job. Check the side of the barrel. Look for an oval with 16-65 or 16-70. Most likely its a short chambered 16. Classy, but good luck finding ammo. Will not chamber standard 16 unless its been converted.

Boots, please don't kick-start an old thread after you started another thread for the same reason.
