hi bigben,
with browning a-5's, Serial Numbering System changed in 1954-55. H=Standard Weight. L=Light Weight. in 1956 light wieght changed to G. the only s/n using an L was in the 55-56 years. also check for yourself at this site.

Hello thanks for the help but I made a mistake, the "L" is above the S/N under a "FN" in a circle. the "L" is not part of the S/N it means it is a light 12, but there are only 5 #'s in the S/N 10148. please excuse my mistake.
thanks

I have the same gun with a lower s#. Yours was made between 54-55. You can double check on the browning Web site if you want.
