About this title


The Browning Auto-5 Shotguns is the first book ever to cover the history, model variations, accessories and production dates of the legendary Browning Auto-5 shotgun. The authors; H.M. Shirley, Jr. and Anthony Vanderlinden combined their knowledge in specific areas to make this publication possible. This publication is to date the only reference book on the Auto-5 (A-5) shotgun prepared entirely with the extensive cooperation and support of Browning, FN Herstal, the Ogden UT, Browning museum and the Liege Firearms museum. This reference is the only accurately researched book on the Auto-5 (A-5) shotgun and its production. The purpose of the book is not only to introduce the many models and details of the Auto-5 (A-5), but also to give the collector the first and only accurate method in dating a specific Auto-5 (A-5) shotgun. Just a bit of the information found in The Browning Auto-5 Shotguns: 1-The History of FN, (Fabrique Nationale) 2- John M. Browning and the Browning Arms Company. 3- The Creation of the Auto-5: From patent dates and numbers to prototypes. 4- The initial order of 10,000: A detailed analysis of the first order that John Moses Browning ordered with FN in 1903 and how many actually were shipped to the United States. 5- Serial Numbers: The first an only available accurate published record of serial numbers for all Auto-5 guns in all gauges. 6- Proofmarks: A historical review of the Belgian proofing system, as well as a detailed account of each proofmark and explanation as found on Auto-5 (A-5) shotguns. 7- Component Parts: Each relative part of the Auto-5 (A-5) shotgun is reviewed and changes and introduction dates on the changes is explained. 8- Models: All models are clearly discussed with their variations and introduction dates. 9- Boxes, Cases and Hang tags. 10- Engraving patterns: From the early custom "One of a kind" Auto-5 shotguns to the later special grade Auto-5 (A-5) shotguns.
