    I had a 86 Light 20 that I sold for some reason. If you ever want to sell that one let me know. I am getting ready to buy a sweet 16 Belgium. Guy actually has a new one in the box for $3600, but I am not buying that one.

    I have two of them. Both blondes. One with a 26 inch IC and the other with a 28 inch mod. Still use them from time to time.

    The one with a 26 inch bbl was my dads. That gun killed a bunch of quail in SE KS back in the times when there was quail down there.

    I've owned a lot of shotguns over the years. Pumps, autos, singles, SxS's and OU's but it wasn't until about 10 years ago I bought my first Browning Auto 5. A 1960 Belgium "SweetSixteen" with 26" vent rib choked IC. After using it for awhile I thought why the heck did I not own one of these before. It has become the only gun I use for pheasants. I absolutely love it. BTW, for you Auto 5 20 ga. guys. Browning made the Auto 5 first in 12 ga. and then in 16 ga. When they did come out with a 20 they built it on the 16 ga. frame. Some of the parts from the Belgium 16's and 20's are interchangeable.

    Good to know, Thanks George. Wonder if parts for both guns are getting hard to find?

    I don't think they're too hard to find. Wood is getting hard to find. If I had a problem, I'd call Art's Gun Shop in Missouri first. There were over 3 million of them made so there are lots of parts out there. I knew the 20 and 16 wood was interchangeable. When I had the 12 gauge restored, he didn't have to replace any parts and that gun had been used hard. He said they seldom have parts break. Sometimes need a spring or two replaced.

    This is the 12 I had Arts restore. It was in rough shape. Wish I had taken a before pic.
