I know what you’re thinking: What’s so rare about a 16 gauge Winchester Model 21? If that’s all this double was, I’d say “nuttin”.

Here’s an interesting Winchester M21. It’s up for auction now Gunauction.com at No Reserve and the listing ends May 10, 2015 @ 17:09:00 PT. I can’t imagine Winchester made many 16g 21s like this. Sixteens were never very popular, especially after the first World War, and by the time this gun was made 20 gauges were catching on […]

If you’re looking for a nice O/U, here’s a 16 gauge German double that deserves your attention. This Merkel was made in 1951, and even though it’s 60+ years old, it looks pretty much new. These older Merkel over-unders are solid and incredibly well made. Even though they look a little beefy, they are surprisingly nimble shotguns. […]

I’ve raved about Webley & Scott’s Model 700 shotguns a bunch of times. Rugged and dependable, the M700 was introduced in the 1950s as an entry-level shotgun and it went of to become one of the most popular side-by-sides ever made. While 12 gauge Model 700s are easy to find, 16 gauges are not. The […]

Fox Sterlingworths used to be one of the best buys in American shotguns. Hunters realized this and made it the company’s best seller. From 1910 to about 1940, the A.H. Fox and then the Savage Arms Company shipped around 140,000 of these great side-by-side shotguns to shooters throughout North America. Most Sterlies were used hard […]
