Hi There. I'm new here. Sure looks like a great forum.
I need to start out with a question. A freind of mine has entrusted me with a pair of Browning A5's that belonged to his late father in law.
I went to a web site that had serial number info and have determined that the light 20 was made in 64 and the light 12 in 65.
I know the number of asterics (sp?) on the barrel denote the choke but can't remenmber the code. These each have 2. Any help there?
I don't know if it's appropriate to ask the value here but that's my other question. They have some minimal handling marks and do not have the original cartons but I believe they are unfired. I'd guess they'd be rated at 90%. Some fancy scroll work and gold triggers. Very pretty shotguns. I might buy them from him myself.Thanks for any input.

buy those humpbacks,

they always work when others fail. only had 1 failure in this a5's career (when it was full of salt water after a long stalk in a marsh).
