Have a real itch to buy a 16ga over and under. Really have my eye on a nice Browning citori in a field grade but can't seem to find one in Canada. What would be some other options as far as over and u ...

My go to grouse gun is an open choked FW Heym 6 pound 4 oz 16 gauge boxlock circa 1935.

Here is that Pieper's twin, only in field grade. I got it for $575 and they are just four serial numbers apart. Both on the factory floor together 100 years ago ...
