I don't mind when they're high I'd rather bring em.. down dead. ..oh and it's steel proofed   ..win... win. .☺

I promised myself a long while ago when I wore a younger mans cloths that I would have an over and under with a straight hand stock and I'm sure glad I have. .there is just something about them that's right. ..👍

I have just bought a Geezer Cerini thing, that is 20 bore, 32" barrels and weighs in at 6 3/4lbs.  I have only put some 30 rounds through it at clays, but it shoots OK and is a nice gun to shoot. I bought it for the coming season.

stuck mine on the scales, its just under 7lbs. that is with extended briley chokes and a fair sized extension on the stock. I am 6ft 2 so needed to extend the stock a fair amount.

I think the weight of a 20g must be a personal thing as some prefer the Browning/Miroku weighing around 7lbs whereas others prefer the weight of a Beretta at just over 6lbs. 

My 20g Macnab Highlander weighs just 6lbs and I shoot 28g RC Sipes with no adverse recoil and find it pleasant to shoot. I would not wish, nor need to shoot 32g through it though.

Still interested to know who else makes a 16g (my favourite gauge) other than Lincoln or Chapuis weighing around 6 1/2 lbs.

One thing I am not a fan of is the prevalence of the prince of Wales stocks on 16s, I have big hands and find them very uncomfortable. Oddly I love my straight hand stock. I think that might be due to learning to shoot with a straight hand stocked side by side.
