I did just the opposite; I liked the old Redhead pad on my Parker Trojan but I needed more length and if I just put in a spacer the lines wouldn't be right. The rubber was a little oversize so I was ...

From the curmudgeon's perspective: I've never understood this obsession with strengthening or "bringing back" the 16 gauge. Like Dave says: I like them, I use them, but I couldn't care less ...

Kind of a cool gun but I wouldn't think there'd be much market for a 7-1/2 pound 16ga.

Keep in mind that many of these guns were made for shorter than modern 2-3/4" loads. I ran into this years ago shooting my dad's old Savage 775a 16ga, built on the same platform as the Model 11 ...
