I've posted a few pictures of this gun before, but I thought it deserved its own thread. After importing fewer than 3000 12 gauge Auto-5's in 1903, Browning changed the agreement with FN. Remington made a licensed copy for the U.S., and FN marketed to the rest of the world. That deal (and I believe the patents) expired after 20 years, and Browning resumed imports in 1923. The 16 gauge, designed in 1909, was significantly different than the 12. This is one of the first ones imported.
