    Browning - Return of the Sweet Sixteen

    For those who loved the 16 gauge in semi-auto form, its back!


    Quote: The Sweet Sixteen shotgun was one of the iconic scattergun models made by Browning in the last century. Built between 1936 and 1976, the 16 gauge semi-automatics were adored by many hunters who liked the lighter gun that produced near 12 gauge performance. Even though the 16 gauge has fallen out of favor with many, these guns are still sought by many collectors and hunters.Good news for anyone who would like to have a modern Sweet Sixteen: Browning returned the shotgunto its catalog for 2016.

    I have a friend that had two of the originals; he gave one of them to his SIL a few years ago for Christmas.

    I have an old Auto-5 in 12 gauge that was/is my fathers.

    I LOVE my Belgium made sweet 16. Dad gave it to me 39 years ago! Still as accurate as a rifle and a dream to shoot! My son used it recently an a hog hunt at Little Lake Lodge.

    "Vegetarian" is an old Indian word for BAD HUNTER!
