Sweet Sixteen

Thought I’d throw this link to a recent post I made in the FN forum since it’s also appropriate here.

That is a fantastic A5- I hadn’t seen that thread. I have a 16 Ga A5 but it is a 1946-47 mfg so not technically a “sweet sixteen,” I don’t believe. It’s a Browning gun but actually mfg’d by Remington (it’s not a Model 11) since the FN factory wasn’t exactly cranking out lots of commercial guns immediately after the war.

My great grandfather bought it for my grandfather when he returned from Europe after the war. I still have the receipt. He bought a 16 Ga for my grandfather and a 20 Ga for his brother (that one is still in the family also). I had it professionally restored and use it occasionally on a dove hunt. Lovely old shotguns those A5s.
