Does a plastic/synthetic stock semi-auto 16 gauge exist? The new Browning sweet sixteen lightning is VERY tempting, but I tend to abuse my waterfowl gun. I would also feel a little guilty screwing in a sling swivel...

I do have a synthetic stock on a Benelli SS a shotgun I use for sporting and FITASC. It is over 13 years old and there isn't a mark on that stock......I can't say the same for any wood stocked gun I own.
But finding a synthetic stock for a 16 gauge is like looking for plastic silverware at a dinner party in Buckingham Palace. And most requests for such a stock will be met with that same air of elitism.
I feel the same way. Iíve been on the fence about a sweet 16 as well. Maybe if enough of us ask Browning to make a wicked wings version they will come out with one for 2022. the BPS 16 and 20 use the same stock. A year or two ago browning redesigned the 20ga bps stock and have several synthetic options but they havenít yet made them available as parts only complete guns. When they do I will be getting a synthetic stock set for my 16 bps.

Also I hunted a lot with a new style a5 a lot for 2 seasons. Added sling studs and all. It got kinda beat up. Biggest problem was it tipping over in the duck boat one morning and it bent the barrel slightly. the pattern board agreed and so did a few trap league scores.
I donít think a straight a5 made into a wicked wing edition is the answer. They would have to beef it up some.
