This Browning A5 Lightweight is chambered in 12 gauge, has a gold trigger and has the nice vented rib on a 26" barrel. I have not had time to fire it, bore looks very very good. These were made from 1949 - 1976. Quality is as you can see in the pictures.
Date code - I put pre 1970, because I fairly certain that is the case, HOWEVER trying to make sense of the Browning chart, is about as clear as mud. In fact, another guy has one with a 99xxx that he says in 1969. A second gentleman has a four digit he shows to be 1954-55.

Serial number is - 9g then second line 47763. If I read the chart correctly (and I am probably not), G for lightweight serial numbers G23001-85000 means 1957? If I read it another way, I assume the numbering system 9g means 1959, G=lightweight? Two digit codes appear to start in 1958-67 and this is a one digit code "9", so definitely pre 1970??? So if anyone has additional info from a credible written source, it would be nice to know.
