    Bigbore613....I have a Browning Auto 5 Sweet Sixteen (serial A 3627) that I inherited from my father and it has a solid rib on the barrel. The sides of the rib are smooth and the top is cross hatched for anti glare with a single stainless steel colored bead. This is a belgium made gun, probably manufactured in the mid 1940's. I hope this info helps you.

    Thanks for the dating of my Sweet 16 Bigbore613....the Auto 5 Sweet Sixteen is a nice hunter. But my father always preferred to use his Light 12 Auto 5. We only rarely shot the 16 gauge.
