In my old age I have find myself collecting 16ga SxS shotguns. I do not have any particular brand, manufacturer, or country of origin in mind - just that the shotgun be a SxS 16ga that strikes my fancy. So far, I only have one brand new one, a F.A.I.R. with choke tubes and an English style stock. The others are older models; one or two might be considered "collectibles" while the rest are just "workhorses" that a farmer might have kept behind the kitchen door should an opportunity come up to gather supper. Is there anyone else out there that has an interest in or collects 16ga SxS shotguns ? If so, please respond.
Or are you wanting to purchase more additions or dispose of some?
I'm fascinated by double side by sides, but unable to persue that interest. I've always wondered if the difference in frame size between 16 and 20 is significant and readily identifiable?
Likely a 16 got more TLC in its life.
A 16 on a 20 gauge frame is a joy...a 16 on a 12 gauge frame...not so much
not a “collector “ but an avid 16 guy
I had a Stevens 311 in 16 gauge. When I got it, it was in poor condition, I re-blued it using the Dicropan system and replaced the stock and forend. It was a wonderful upland gun and so much lighter and handier than a semi 12 gauge when I was walking all day. I sold it when I moved and had to downsize. I regret that to this day.
