That is not right. FN was back in A5 production by late 1945, with the highest 12-gauge A5 serial number 240950 to the warehouse on 12/31/45. By 12/31/51 they were up to 352050. In 16-gauges 128116 was the highest serial number to the warehouse on 12/31/45, and 131738 on 6/15/48. In 1947 they began the X-series 16-gauge serial numbers which overlapped the straight six-digit serial numbers from late 1946 into 1948 and then were the norm until 1953. The Remington produced A5s had letter prefixes to the serial numbers -- C for 20-gauges, B for 12-gauges and A for 16-gauges. Remington production of A5s for Browning ended in June 1942. Some were probably still being sold out of inventory in 1948, as the Stoeger catalogue for that year still shows both the "American" Browning A5s and the Belgian made Brownings. The 1950 Stoeger catalogue only has the 16- and 12-gauge Belgian made A5s, still with the safety in the front of the trigger guard, and is also showing 12- and 20-gauge Superposeds.

Sorry, but Researcher is correct. I'm looking at my std.A5 16 gauge made by FN in 1949 with the early safety in front of the triggerguard.
Serial # is X25xxx.
Belgium made by FN for Browning, not made by Remington.

That table from Art's certainly doesn't agree with Shirley & Vanderlinden.

Fuller, you are right, PA24 was wrong in his first post. 1951 was the cutoff year, as Researcher stated.

Bill,

PA24 was not wrong, he provided his reference material.

He was simply misled by information that since the time of printing has been shown to be inaccurate.

Researcher,
That Premier Remington is quite a gun. I am jealous.
