As is my luck, I stumbled across a German 16GA that has been restored about 5 years ago.
I'm convinced it is a JP Sauer, but the friend of a friend insists it is a JP Suhl. I'll reserve judgement until I have actually seen it.
Aways, the gun is looking for a home and I'm not too knowledgeable about wingshooting as yet. Is this worthwhile to pursue?

A little more challenging than a 12bore.Not sure what ammo costs but should think a little more than 12bore due to 12bore being so popular.I've heard a nice choice for ladies and kids due to less recoil.

Thanks brother; I think I'll pop round and have a look at the old girl & take some pics. If all else fails, I'll post it for sale on the board & try and find her a new home.

16gas are lovely little shotties (oops, sorry Gerard, that should read "shotguns"). I have one and Just Plain Phil (apparently MIA) also has one. Mine is a very light little SbS. Being short (it was built as a lad's gun), one has the tendancy to shoulder it a little loosely. THis results in a bruise that you can be proud of - even in a 16ga! Most manufacturers load it with propellant that is faster than MS200 (more like MP200 burn rates). I have bought ammo for it with 28g and 32g loads. That ahead of "faster powder" tends to make its recoil a touch sharper.
I posted a pic of the gun somewhere under the wingshooting part of the forum.
Expect to pay about 2x what the going rate is for 12ga ammo.
I love the gun and enjoy shooting with it, I am sure that you would too.
Let us know which way you decide to go.

I can get you ammo kitten."But I did discover patience. And it sucks. Mostly for people who have too much time on their hands best as I can tell."

I've always wanted to wear tweed jackets....
Thanks chaps; I'll revert with info once I have seen her.

Sorry to jump in here but which would be better suited to clays for a 9 or 10yr old girl...16gauge or 20gauge?

Also a bit of a hijack. I'm looking for a cheap beat up one. Saw pics of a beautiful little 30-30 double rifle built on a 16ga action. 90cm long and apperently the best thing you can use for pig hunting. If any of you ever see or hear of one please let me know. The keyword however is cheap!Dear JS4 and others. I serial edit posts to ensure correct spelling. I can't do it any more. Please forgive any errors. I'm not a a bad person. :)
