  1. Was curious to know if anyone has one of the new 1100 16 gauges, in particular the wood stock Classic Field model? I have one on order that I should get next week. I can hardly wait. If so, what do you think of the gun? After this purchase, I should be complete for awhile. I already have two 12 gauges and a 20. I got the 16 because it was someting different. I have always heard that they are great for upland/small game.
  2. Before I get blasted, I will state that I do own a M1 12 gauge that I love. I would rather have a 16 gauge Benelli but considering that point mute, I will have to buy elsewhere. Does anyone currently shoot a 870 Wingmaster in 16 gauge? I am considering one. Every gun that I currently has is an autoloader but I might as well be different with a 16 gauge. Any help appreciated.

    which Benelli?

    Chasman, Considering your needs for a shotgun, I would suggest a M1 field in 12 gauge with a 26 or 28" barrel. I currently have a M1 in black synthetic and love it. I would lean toward synthetic if you plan to hunt hard. If you need a 3.5" shell, go with the Super Black. I love the balance of the M1 and it is designed to hold up. But make sure the gun fits you right. If you don't hunt alot, I would suggest a Beretta in a 390 or 391 model. Recoil would be a little less due to the gas system. Good luck on your choice.

  5. I really love my M1 12 gauge but recently traded my M1 20 gauge in for a Beretta 390 due to the recoil and it was too whippy. I really love the 390 so far. It is balanced well and recoil is non-existant. Benelli 12 gauge guns are excellent but feel the 20 gauge models are too light for the recoil. This is why I would love to see Benelli build a 16 gauge on a true 16 gauge frame around 6.5 pounds. This would give hunters a good choice with less weight than a 12 gauge.
  6. Was curious to know if Benelli will make a 16 gauge and to hear from current 16 gauge owners as to whether they like the gauge or not? Currently own a M1 IN 12 GAUGE but really consider it a little heavy for long carry. I think a 16 gauge on a true 16 gauge frame would be perfect. [email protected]
  7. Would Like to know how people feel about a possible 16 gauge Benelli? I currently have a 12 gauge M1 and love it. I mainly use it for ducks. I consider it too heavy for upland. I have tried a M1 in 20 gauge but found it too light and whippy. I think a 16 gauge would be perfect if it is in the mid 6lb. range and built on a true 16 frame. Remington is bringing back the 1100 16 gauge but it is nothing more than a 16 barrel on a 12 gauge frame which defeats the purpose. A 16 should be lighter than a 12. A 12 gauge will always be the most versatile and a 20 gauge is a great gun for many but a 16 gauge is best for upland. How does the majority feel?
