This is one of the evergreen topics here. Right up there with the right size of shot to use for pheasants.

Short version: you can do it, but that doesn't mean you should.

The 16 ga Model 12 might be the sleeper of this auction cycle. It's a 1952 gun, so likely no 2 9/16 chamber issues, too.

If you're comfortable running them through a short chamber, I won't stand in your way. the 2 1/2-1-6 load is pretty much a standard 16 light game load. That doesn't give much certainty about the rec ...

A couple years ago, one of the members here sold me a bunch of 16 ga wads. Murphy showed up and, as things usually go when he does, the label on the packaging managed to make itself disappear. So I' ...

I would send him half the check - literally torn in half and un-cashable as is - and tell him the other half would arrive when i had the barrels in my hands.

I had non-response, compliance and timi ...

Short version: you can put modern 2 3/4 shells through a 2 1/2 inch chambered gun, but there are better ideas. This, because:

If the recoil from shot #1 is jarring your safety back "on" you've got a problem that requires a gunsmith's attention. There is no alternative. This is an unintended discharge waiting to h ...

Simpson's usually has bundles of 16 ga/30 inch Belgian hammerguns and for short money, too.
