Caleb: In the FWIW column, I now have two 31Ls, a 20 and a 16. Both are in great shape, w/no frame cracks or significant wear. The 16 has an exceptional piece of wood on it and shows remarkably little ...

I'd never heard of them before but their webpage is intriguing. Hearing is becoming an issue for me these days as well. Tinnitus seems to be ever more present. Costco makes some fairly reasonable unit ...

Nothing like resurrecting an effectively dead post. I happened to be up in Conifer Colorado last Wednesday and stopped in to see my buddy at Mountain Guns. They still have that very early and very lig ...

I used to shoot a big 10 double on large ducks and geese that had 3 1/2-inch chambers. It would (and often did) kill waterfowl at 40 to 50 yards using bismuth shot. I bought it specifically for that p ...

Spectacular photography on those last shots. A great way to end the 2020 hunting season. Hope we get a few more...

Ruffed grouse is pretty hard to beat, as are my other favorites, elk and walleye. I picked elk in the survey, but these three game meals are at the top for me. I'd hate to have to forsake any one for ...

It is confusing, clearly. There are no 16 gauge pumps built on a gauge-specific frame. In the mass production-era processes that produced essentially all the pump shotguns, there were only ever two fr ...

Well, initially that may have been true, but time has altered the 870 rather dramatically. Only the very early guns have any claim on being "svelte". The later guns are big and heavy, with a ...

Brings back some great memories! Hunted Gambel quail back at the turn of the last century while working on a big job in Phoenix. I was stuck down there over several weekends for several months and mad ...

Hamish: Interesting article, thankyou for it. I did see that it clearly states that all 16s are built on 12 gauge frames.

Don't know about the 16 gauge frames. There were 12s and 20s and that was all, from what I understand. The earlier guns didn't have choke tubes or vent ribs, which makes for comparatively lighter barr ...

New gunshop in Conifer these days (talk about difficult timing!). Drove up there to meet a friend for lunch who helped set it up and now works there part-time. Mountain Guns is finally mostly open and ...

If you're really interested in a light 870 16, look into the gun that spawned the 870. The Model 31L in 16 trips the scales in the 5 1/2 lb range and has identical geometry to the later gun.

Watching the sun come up over serious desolation. Spent most of November and much of December hunting elk and deer in NW Colorado. Social distancing at its finest.
