The one I sold here had a plain barrel that was bout an inch short I think.. It was a heck of a good grouse gun. I don't know if it had any choke or not. I sold it because of my age and don't know if I would of used it anymore...

The Browning BPS 16 ga is built on a 20 ga frame. Merkel makes some 16 ga guns, such as the 1620, on a 20 ga frame. I think the Dickinson 16 ga sxs is a 12 ga frame, but I could be wrong on that.

Remington 11-48 16s did have a 16 receiver, IIRC. I also was thinking rem 31s were scaled correctly, too. Browning Auto 5s in 16 had a 16ga scared frame. They also had a 3-shot version, which lightened the front end, as well as a Superlight on an alloy 16ga receiver. Good luck finding either, but the alloy gun was under 6#, (again) IIRC. Marlin 90s are sought after in 16, and the Winchester 1200 in 16 is a sleeper, cuz it’s on an alloy receiver.

I don't have my 12 gauge 21 at home at the moment. But the 16 with 28" barrels weighs in at just under 6 3/4 pounds. Still feels wonderful in the hands. But, seemingly, a good bit heavy, I'm thinking, were it on a smaller frame.

When the 12 gauge comes back home, I can give better info, I reckon


The 16 gauge 21s were built in a 16 gauge frame. I think these feel better than any of the 21s.

I've not handled any of the other sub-gauge 21's. But between the 12 and the 16, for general day in, day out, upland hunting, the 16 would get my nod.

Yep.
