I'm new to the forum so I hope I'm doing this right. I have inherited a Browning - 20 gauge - semi-auto from my father and it is in good condition

I believe the model number is - A7.

On the right side of the barrel is - MADE IN BELGIUM

I don't know if it means anything, but it has a gold trigger.

The serial number is - 1Z - 51416

I think I found the 1Z means it was made in 1961.

If possible I'd like to know if I'm correct for the date it was manufactured and possibly what it might be worth and any other information that might be pertinent.

Could be A5. A7 was a guess. Is there a place I can look on the gun to be sure? Also how do you determine what the choke is?

Agree it's an A-5. They were never marked "A-5" to my knowledge but it's an A-5. Yes the serial number indicates it is 1961 manufacturer light weight model. What is interesting is "Lightweight" isn't indicated on the receiver!

Do you want replacement cost of the gun, insurance value, market value or what you may be able to sell the gun for quickly?
