BROWNING has long been sweet on the 16 gauge. That was evident two years ago when it brought back the A5 Sweet Sixteen, and is clearly the case with the introduction of a pair of 16-ga. Citori over-unders. The Feather Superlight is a sleek, straight-stocked field gun that recalls classic wingshooting of an earlier time. With its alloy receiver, expect friendly carry and fast handling at 6 lbs., 3 ozs. A bit heavier at 6 lbs., 11 ozs., thanks to its steel receiver, is the 525 Field. It sports a pistol-grip stock, and while it lacks some of the engraving and gold-plated trigger that adorn the Superlight, both are markedly handsome. In common are oiled Grade II/III walnut, silver-nitride-finished receivers and 26" barrels. Scaled a bit smaller than their 12-ga. counterparts, these Citori 16s sit low in the hand to promote intuitive shooting. Performance enhancers also include hard, snag-free buttpads and ivory bead sights. browning.com
