    I recently refinished my father in law Sweet 16 in OD green. Since I had enough prepared my MVP stock and did it up not too bad.

    Normally a Sweet 16 is referring to a Belgium made Browning A5 in 16ga (the Sweet 16 was a specific model). They are a sweet little shooter too. Same payload as a light 12ga but lower powder charge makes for a really gentle gun you can compete against 12ga shooters with. I shoot 16's a lot.

    OP on the other hand I think is referring to the rifle in his original pic which appears to have a 16" barrel in which case it'd be light as snot, which is pretty sweet too.

    +1 !


    Fellas, the Sweet 16 wasn't just the A-5 with a different chambering. It was scaled down in all dimensions to match the 16 gauge shell. The result was the sweetest handling and shooting shotgun you could imagine. They are prised as much as shooters as they are collectable. If you ever get the chance to shoot one do it ! You'll see what the fuss is about.

    So anyway, is sweet 16 a name for something newer than Brownings small fame A-5 or a modern slang term for a type of thing ?

    I've seen it recently being used to describe 16ga Remington Model 11's, short barreled rifles and battleship main guns. I think the verbal attractiveness of the term was just too much and the accurate use referencing the browning A5 16ga is now relegated to the memories of old farts like me and chucker.
