I just noticed this listed on GI. I have no affiliation with it but I think someone on the board was looking for one. Appears to be pre-CNC and laser checkering. Not a bad price.

I posted a question on weight and stock dimensions on GI two days ago. No answer, so I called the gun room this morning and the gun had just sold. Anyone on here?

Congrats on your purchase. When you get it in could you get a accurate weight on it and post it on here? A buddy had one on a pheasant hunt years ago and I was lugging around a 7 1/2 # 16 ga Ringneck at the time and remember his gun feeling a lot lighter, but since then have come to like my 16 ga SXS's in the 6 1/2 to 6 3/4 pound range. I'm wondering if I should continue to look for my own 1620 or not.

My 1620 weighs 6lbs 4oz with the 16b barrels. Mine is the combo and came with 20b barrels as well but it weighs more with those.

Is yours the pistol grip or English stocked version?

Thanks for the weight info guys. Now I just need to find one for sale that the seller doesn't think is gold plated. $8000 plus buy now prices on Gunbroker.

I went to cabelas in Hazelwood mo.to pickup the 1620 that I had shipped from Grandville Mich.I didnít take it. It was not in good enough condition for me. They lowered the price 200.00 but still did not want it.
