It was made by FN (Fabrique' Nationale) in 1950, in Herstal, Belgium- just like every other Browning A5 was, until Browning shifted A5 production to the Miroku Gun Co of Japan in 1976.
(The current Browning A5 is an inertia-driven Benelli clone)

Browning hasn't made their own guns since John Browning started selling/leasing his patents variously to Winchester, FN, Remington, etc over 125 years ago.

Browning's corporate headquarters has long been located in America, and "Browning's" imported into the US are usually so marked - nothing unusual or confusing there, for anyone familiar with the company.
