Thanks, pm sent!
That's good, older A-5's are beautiful guns. Not trying to discourage you from anything you choose however, I asked the same question about 16's several months ago on 16ga.com. and the majority voted for the new A-5 over the older A-5's or the Remington 1100.
Hawkeye, I have a Sweet Sixteen you might be interested in. Not sure how to do a PM.
I didn't see that. The only way I would buy one of the new Browning autos is if I were guaranteed to sell it and double my money inside a week.
I can say this I bought two of the last run 1100 16 gauges in 2003, one wood stocked and one synthetic stocked. Even though they are built on a 12 gauge frame, I've shot the heck out of the synthetic gun for the past 16 year's. No problems or complaints and it's brought a lot of ducks to hand for me. It's by no means an upland gun but if ever there was a modern 16 made for waterfowling my vote goes to it. For upland I have my Baker 16 gauge SxS that weighs in at 5 3/4 pounds, an all day carrying gun and a joy to shoot.
Glad you mentioned Remington, cause the model 11 was also a great gun, with lighter price tag. The later 11-48, 11-58, and the soft shooting 1100, were all good guns.
I would like to have one of each. Original A-5, 1100, and new A-5.
haha not sure I have the funds for that!
If I need a shotgun lighter than my sweet, I have 20s for that. Shotgun hunting is about efficiency, to me: balance between pattern vs recoil vs fun to shoot and carry. 16s fill a niche between 20 and 12, to me.....there’s a point where light is too light, and often comes with whippiness. I want a rod, not a log or a buggy whip.
