Mike, brake the gun down. I would be extremely surprised if the chamber length is not stamped somewhere on the barrel.

Yes my dad has a sweet 16 I hunted with that gun growing up witch is why I got this one I ordered my shells from Classic Shooting Company

It may say 65mm or 70mm....if it's an older gun.

on the bottom of the barrel it says choke 16.8 and on the side in the same line it says full 16 special steel it says 16.65

That's a 2 9/16 in barrel. Probably not made in 1952 unless the barrel and receiver are not matched.

What's the serial number? Pm me if you don't want to post it.

16.65. Translates to 16 gauge gun chambered for 65 mm shells.

There is also a serial# on the barrel that I ran through the Browning web site and it matched 1952
