It may be making a come back. Browning has always manufactured the pump gun in 16, and just came out with a remake of the butt ugly A-5 (IMHO) and the Citori O/U.
Now Franchi will chamber their Instinct SL in 16 banana

I still like the 16Ga, have a couple family guns from back in the day. 870 Wingmaster from around 1956 and a Browning Auto5 from around 1950. Both are deadly on birds

Ithaca 16 gauge is about as good a pheasant gun as there is.

The new A5 sweet sixteen is a fantastic gun. Killed 270 dove with it this past season. Really hope they make it in a 20 gauge.

It's going to be the new hipster fad, like 6.5 creedmore.

Learned to hunt with my dad's Savage 16ga single shot. Will be the only thing my brothers fight over on his inheritance. I've been in the market for a Fox 16 SxS for years, but haven't found one quite up to what I'm looking for.

Grandpa Olson had a 16 gauge for raccoons in the hay barn. I think he carried on the tractor for when he'd flush out some game. Wish I knew where it went.

This is good news. Always thought it was the best for all occasions, killed geese with them when we were younger.

have 2, inherited dads model 12 and granddads fancy French made SxS. both retired from field duty now.

Had a chance to buy a Citori 16, many years ago and still hate the thought of passing on the gun. May check that out again, for a few $ more this time.

The browning "Sweet 16" were some pretty guns.
