    What does the prefix "71X" identify on an A5, followed by five numbers?

    I have looked at Brownings ID chart and am not finding anything that makes sense to me.

    Can someone help me out?

    Thank you.

    71 means it was made in 1971.
    X means it is either a 20 ga 2 3/4" *standard weight, or a 20 ga 3" Magnum.
    (* = not a Light-20, which would be a 71Z)
