With purchasing advice and inspection assistance from Del Whitman, I recently purchased a Wm. Evans Boxlock-a restocked and re-blackened 1934 vintage. Its a 16 ga with 2 1/2" chambers. Weight is 6 lbs, 4oz-balanced on the hinge pin.

Should make for a great upland bird gun.

Del's a good guy to rely on. Sounds heavier than a lot of Brit 16's. But depending on its intended use, that could be a plus.

The stocks LOP is 15+ inches and has well done lightening holes with plugs underneath the checkered butt.

28" barrels with minimum thickness of .03+ and a 15+ LOP adds a few more ounces than the lighter !6 gauges I have looked at. It's a couple of ounces more than I had hoped to find. The stock is a smidgeon longer than I need, but I don't plan to touch it just to save an ounce or two.

I like the shotgun's simple, understated appearance.

16GA, 28" barrels, re-stocked with 15" LOP, English hand, double triggers, Webley & Scott treble screw grip, Anson forearm release, bit over 6 LBs DEFINES a mighty fine game gun.
VERY attractive and interesting piece in a VERY attractive gauge IMHO.
It emotes ... USE ME.
