Also are parts available for these ? Stock and forestock ?
Welcome.
You can only interpolate from guns mentioned in this thread with a known history.Early 1920s probably.
Sorry,I am unaware of a source for parts or wood..

Camsters 144,xxx was also 1972.
Just 22s 31,xxx was built in 1930.

This book covers all the old Belgian Browning models and I will keep it next to the computer if anyone has any requests.

Thank you Ol 39 for your reply. My Trombone is like new and I really like it
Because although I have many other slide or pump 22's this is the only Trombone
I have actually seen in person. I once read many years ago that in Canada
Their gun laws did not permit semi-automatic rifles, therefore these guns were more
Common there. I don't think they were ever imported into the USA. I notice from the post that many of the owners of these guns are from Canada,Australia
England,Germany and other places. I have enjoyed reading and learning more about them on this forum.

Some came into the US wearing the BAC name.

Standard production stopped by 1974.
Custom shop production occurred later on,with a different numbering sequence.

I think it was 1990 or so ... I have a Trombone with s/n 140994 with a date code of 1988.

Not a custom shop model

FN Trombone Serial Numbers

Just joined this board. I have one that I inherited from my dad. Trying to figure out the age. I think it's old because the serial number is only 4 digits. 5965 stamped in front of the trigger guard. Stock was cracked and "repaired" with wire through the hole where the safety should have been. I replaced both stock and fore-end and made a new safety button. Bluing is gone. Barrel is full of craters. I guess 22 ammo was corrosive in those days.
