In order to fund a more perfect target gun, I offer the following:

[Linked Image from i.imgur.com]

A 16 and a 20 gauge version, made for only a few years in the late 1940s ('47 to '50 for the subgauge versions). True "lightweights" in that both weigh only 5 1/2lbs by using an "Aeromet" receiver (a company Remington utilized that specialized in aviation-grade aluminum casting and milling in the 1940s). The 16 extended my Father-in-laws participation in upland bird hunting until his death last year by being half the weight of his regular weapon of choice. Sadly, nobody left here to appreciate them anymore. Prone to cracking at the magazine tube if misused, neither of them suffer from that malady. I have tried to price compare them online but can find no others for sale as a reference.

The 16 is clearly the lesser-used version, it's specifics are: 13 1/2 in. LOP to a pad, 26 1/2in. tube w/10 points of choke (tight IC). The 20 is 14in. LOP to factory plate, 28 tube, choked MOD. Small epoxy repair at head of the stock on the 20, w/no issues in the last 10 years of use.

$550 shipped for either one. A check to the Man if they sell from here.

I will take the 20 if still available.

I have one just like it and it is my favorite dove gun. Have been looking for a second one a long time.

I will PM my contact info.

The 20 is spoken for, the 16 remains available.

From 1947, this gun still has very good original finishes and better than average wood.
