I have an A5 12gauge serial# XXXXX you tell me where and when it was made?Thank you very much, MikeH.
This is my first attempt.
I will do my best to answer your question.
Your shotgun was made in 1946 by Remington.It is what's referred to as an "American Browning" Auto-5, Remington made 38,000 in 12ga from 1940-1947, from SN B5000 to SN B43129.They are similar to the Remington model 11, with Browning logos. 16ga guns had an "A" SN prefix, and the 20ga versions a "C" prefix - ILO the "B" prefix of 12ga guns. If you have any more questions just let me know.
