They make 3" 16 gauge's? I'd line up for one.
None I am aware of after the 1930's, and they were doubles I believe. I wish Browning would be the first, since they teamed up with Winchester and have their own brand of ammo now. How cool would a 3" 16 semi-auto be?
And offer it in different stocks and patterns so it could be used for waterfowling. And make ammo affordable and easily available......now I'm just talking crazy.

Great guns for sure. I love hunting upland game with my grandpa's sweet sixteen A5 (1950s model). It would be fun to have one I could use for waterfowl.

With ammo availability for the 16 I wonder if this will be a marketing blunder for Browning? It must be built on a 12ga frame? Why not produce a 20ga first?

All the shot show reviews I've seen it's not a 12ga frame. It was built as a 16 frame. I see plenty of 16ga shells from distributers just pricy on some. I'm thinking $1400 in local stores.

5 lbs 13 oz.
"Like its most revered predecessor, the Browning A5 16 gauge is built on a smaller, lighter receiver for reduced weight and a sleek feel in your hands."
