The cheapest Winchester 21 16ga on gunbroker right now is $7,999.00 and it's used.

You might take a look for some used Berettas. They are pretty nice guns, I was tempted to buy a used 12ga Beretta Silver Pigeon, but I needed a quail gun.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Kenny I liked the Savage I haven't seen
a 24 in a long time were not a lot made. My running buddy taunts me with his 97 in 16 its in very good shape.
I will be glad and pray I get cleared to shoot mine again.
Dr won't let me shoot anything with over 10 pounds recoil that has relegated me to my 28. That is one of the reasons I was interested in the new A5.

Took me a long time to find a 97 16 in good condition. Never shot it either.

I'm glad to see them bring it back. The sweet 16 is the best shotgun ever.
I have a few of the Belgium ones though. I prol won't buy a new one but if they would offer it in a parkerized finished with synanthic stock I might have to have one for duck hunting with steel shot in the woods. Course I don't duck hunt anymore but can't ever be to prepared.

I don't know about new production but I own a couple O/U doubles. One being a Browning Citori Lightning Model in 16 ga, one being a Savage O/U 16ga and the other being a old H&R O/U 16ga. A 16ga side by side is a lot more common than any over/under. Good luck if your looking for an over/under in 16ga.

Other than Browning.
I think CZ makes one and Stoger used to. Tristar still makes a over and under it's a gun out of Turkey

CZ discontinued 16 ga in 2015, still some laying around in a dark corner of a Bass Pro Shop I bet. :lol:
With further investigation it appears Stoeger has also.
TriStar has one for $640.00, but has an Aluminum receiver, as long as your not shooting 1000's of clays, aluminums alright.


I think the 16ga would of had a better fighting chance if they would of made a magnum 3" version.
Not that they needed to, it is fine as is, but it would drawed in more of the "more shell, more better" crowd.
