Browning A5 Forend?

I have been going through boxes of parts trying to figure out if anything is of value. Not doing any good sitting around like I have thought all of these years. I pulled out what somebody has labeled as a Browning A5 forend. By the looks it does not appear to be a 12 gauge. Is there a difference between a 16 or a 20 gauge forend? If there is a difference, does anyone may know of a way to identify which one I have here, by measurements or whatever.

I know you guys would be the people to ask on the situation. Since I have never had an A5 in my life time so I am clueless on this.

Is there a paper sticker inside..

the barrel channel, stating friction ring setting?
That is common to factory forearms.

Post some pic's and measurements to compare against.

I have a MAG12 & Std. 16 to compar with.
