This is a very early “PRE-WAR” and very RARE Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen. It was made in Belgium in 1939. Any 30]s Sweet Sixteen is a rare find! Experienced collectors with know that Browning didn’t stamp “Sweet Sixteen” on the early guns but they are identified by the gold trigger/safety. The 3 holes drilled in the magazine ring and the barrel has a matt rib vs. plan. This one IS a Sweet Sixteen with all matching numbers. It is in very good condition and excellent for a 30’s A5. At some point the forearm had a crack repaired and it was refinished. The blue etc on the gun is all original. The barrel is a 28in full. It will make a unique addition to any collection. Shipping with insurance is $39. Please email me with any questions or larger pictures. (Consign your quality firearms with Shooting Investments for only 12%!

You won’t find any other on-line dealer willing to sell your firearms for only 12% or listing every gun on 3 separate s. Selling through an House typically costs the seller 15% and the buyer an addition 15% (so 30%) and you have to wait several months to sell and longer to receive funds.
