    Hi all from New Zealand . I have been shotgunning and reloading for years 68 now. I have come across a Fn browning that has been stored away for 20 odd years only seen some photos so far. It’s marked G. FN . Then below that numbers are 71 31484. It has an adjustable pad I think Morgan also a screw on fixed choke. Any help with age and info would be much appreciated. Cheers for now Kevin.

    Southwest Idaho and formerly from the south side of Chicago says Hi and Welcome!! Good people here, and zero drama. Buy another safe now!

    I don't have my A5 bible in front of me right now, but the letter 'G' indicates a "Light" model.

    "71G" however would mean it is a 1971 lightweight. Remove the forearm, and see if there are 3 holes (about 3/8-1/2", or 10-12mm) on the barrel ring that goes around the magazine tube. Does it say "Light Twelve" on the left side of the receiver? I am interested in the choke set up as well? Perhaps a Cutts?
