Look here right at the top of the page:

No way to tell the DOM with just 2 digits of the s/n. Best of luck and welcome to RFC

Serial number is obviously 32000 something. The three x's out numbers won't matter in dating.Two digits will date it.
About the link...It's not a Browning. It's a FN. The Browning info won't apply!
A search through the lengthy recent thread will give known or estimated dates for various serial numbers.It's only about six threads down at the moment. Some guesstimation and interpolation is necessary. There are no dating charts for these.

These are Belgian made guns. The language is French.

Good to know!
I have 2 early early FN 'Trombone's' I didn't know there was a lot of data on the early rifles. I speak enough French to order food/beer and get into a heck of a fight. For the heavy lifting I ask my better half she's the native speaker!

Welcome. Probably mid 1920s.

On page 4 of this forum, there is a lengthy thread about dating these. It's usually guesstimation or interpolation from known guns.
