Was there ever a decent 16 gauge gas auto made that wasn't on a 12 gauge frame?

The only one I know of is the Winchester 1400, but I understand its quality was/is marginal.

Being a Winchester guy...I hate to say this...the 1400 and 140 are not up to the quality....it kills me to say this....an 11-48 Remington.....but the 11-48 is recoil opporated...it is still a better gun than the 1400/140.....So being a Winchester guy....get a model 12 and learn to work a pump.... :;):

There's the Sweet 16, but it's not gas.  And even Sweeties are not all that light.  Other than the plain barrel guns, pretty unusual to find one that weighs much under 7#.

Remington made the 1100 in 16, but I think that was on a 12 gauge frame. They did make the early 870 in a scaled frame. The reintroduced ones where on a 12 gauge frame. I don't think your going to find a true gas scaled frame 16.

A recoil operated gun like the 11-48 might be the best option.

Does anyone know what the 16 gauge plain barreled guns usually weigh?

My 870 from 1952 is built on a 12 gauge frame, last pump Rem. built on a 16 frame was the 31.

The lightest of the two Sweeties I had was just under 7.  Plain barrel, 28".

My sportsman 48 26" barrel weighs 6.5 lbs. (same as my 20)

Sportsman 58 (gas gun)  was made in 16, don't know about scale.

Interesting. The old ads claim the 16 weighed 6.75 pounds, while the 20 was 6.5 pounds and the 12 was 7 pounds.

I'm wondering if - like the early 1100s - the standard M58  12s, 16s, and 20s were all built on the same receiver with scaled barrels accounting for the quarter pound weight difference between each gauge. Does anyone know whether the actual receiver size varied with gauge on the M58?

The Model 1400, 16 gauge(or the 20 ga. for that matter), is not on a scaled frame.
