Got a heads-up that Browning will be offering the White Lightning and Gran Lightning as SHOT Show Special Firearms. If so, and you can't see yourself living without one, you might want to give your LGS a shout and get one ordered.

Added: Also models called the Citori Hunter Grade I and Grade II will be offered in 16ga. My understanding is that these models are similar in every respect but lack the round knob on the pistol grip. The Grade I will be a blued receiver with the word "Hunter" in gold inlay on it; the Grade II will be the silver nitride finished receiver with the same "Hunter" gold inlay.

16ga's aren't shipping until the 3rd quarter of 2021 (Hunter, White Lightning, or Gran Lightning). Not sure what the shipping schedule is for the others.

I ordered one from Bud's in Feb 2018. Had the butt plate cut to a straight line and added a 1" pad to it. Now fits me much better and I actually do pretty good on clays with it. Mine is the white lightning and got lucky on some nice wood. I'll probably carry it a bit more next year for birds. At that time with a $200 rebate I got it for $1446. 28" barrels.

MSRP is 1999, street price will likely be in the $1800 ballpark. 28ga and 410, slightly higher.

As much as I wanted browning to come out with a auto, it must be on its own frame or a 20 ga frame. That's where Remington screws up.. friend bought on when Remington came back out with it. On a 12 frame. Like shooting a bench rest heavy bl on moving squirrels.
Never cared for the humpback races either..

I bought one new, a 16 ga. Superlight (steel receiver) with 28” barrels, in 2015. Really like the gun, truly scaled to the 16 ga.

Like all Browning guns I know of today, it is made my Miroku. They do superb work.

New Browning O/U's are little more than old stock in a new suit.....Citori A, Citori AB, Citori XS.....They reinvent the Citori on an almost annual basis..... I'll look at Browning when they come out with a decent SxS that isn't more fitting for a boat anchor....Until then they have nothing that interests me..

GF1:

What does your Superlight weigh? I'm looking for a modern 16 gauge double or O/U, but I want it to come in under 6-1/2 pounds.

Thanks.

Rem, my Superlight weighs 6# 12 oz, with Browning’s flush choke tubes. In some of the previous runs of these guns, they made some with alloy receivers, designated “Feather” along with the model. These are significantly lighter, but I find the dynamics atrocious.

I find the dynamics of this gun suits me just right, slight weight forward bias.

If you need a 16 gauge that comes in at 6 1/2#, consider a field grade Winchester Model 12 with plain barrel. Mine, with 28” modified choke barrel weighs 6 1/2# on the nose. It’s my favorite chukar gun.

Double: 6 pounds 4 ounces...and AyA is recognized world wide for quality.

https://www.gunsinternational.com/g...s/aya-4-53-16-gauge.cfm?gun_id=101526759

Forgot about the Feathers....Have handled a couple Browning Feathers and found them well balanced

Then there is the Browning...still hand made in Belgium offerings....where for a price you can pretty much get what you want.

WiFowler, any updates on shipping of your Browning Boatanchor (per Battue)? I ordered one but my shop can’t give me any idea what the shipping date is.

I checked out Battue’s AYA referenced SxS, it was really nice but just a little too speedy. I also saw a Winchester model 21 in GunsAmerica that was a beauty for a mere $6,995. I’ll stick to my Browning when it comes.
