Great restoration but if you send it to them, better be ready to wait and wait and wait...


I called on mine. I was told at least three more weeks. I had "the works" done to mine including a rust blue finish.

Will /62 tell me it's a 1962 ?

/Peter


Are the numbers 62 smaller than the other numbers?


Frankly i haven't seen any pict of the serial number, but that is how the seller
Wrote the digits , but seller wrote the last digits /62 so i assume they are smaller
Or some,

Thank you, yes i like it allot but i cant use it so much i want until i have got my
Reamers from Brownells, the 0,40" constriction is way to much for target steel.
020" 025" works better , frankly 040" is to much for modern plastic wad component.
My standard A5/16 plain barrel -53 is opened to 025" and patterns better than my full
Choke sweet , a pattern i not only % .

I have booked 2 more A5 , a12g and a16g -1962 weary much like my -64 sweet
It have cheek pad and off course not the sweet " Tatto " + loss weight operation,
But it will be a great shooter as i dont want wear out my sweet 16 becouse they are
Rare in europe and im probebly the only one in Sweden with a sweet.
I now about one " false " sweet in Sweden , it have the engraving but not the
Lightning slot in recivier and alla other signs ..

Right now i working up some nice hunting loads using Vectan powder.
I have seen there is a full line of Vectan stateside so if someone want som nice Vectan loads
Using lead give me a PM.

Peter,

If you are going to keep that gun as a collectors' piece, don't modify the barrel. On those occasions when you want to shoot it, put the other barrel on it.

Yes if i lives in the states, but i cant sell a gun to states and a 16g gun in Sweden
Is ice cold, well if i dont find another one crazy as me off course .
I want shoot and hunt with my guns and becouse lead for targets i banned i have no
Choise, but a 040" full choke gun aint no fun hunt with either.
I paid 812 € include shipping and handling to Sweden for my sweet and thats approx
The same in usd, and compered to my first A5/16g who i paid 229 € for and offcourse
I put on a speed loader @ 170€/$ So im not in this to make money, and i cant
Count with go brake even if i sell becouse find a buyer for a 16g gun is no play ..
My -53 had to go and i may strip it for the speed load parts and sell it for 2000sek/210 usd

/P

I get it, you're never going to get back the money you've invested in your collection. Me neither, but I keep the one pristine gun I own original not so I can sell it but because I like it that way.

But it's your gun, get the most enjoyment out of it that you can.

Yep ! This guns ar born to shoot and when we have a 6-gun limit in Sweden we have to
Do our choices, and our gunlaws is probably one of the most strict and stupid in europe.
But lucky for me is my wife get her hunting exame and she have only 1 gun
So im sure she need some A5:s :D

Q: do you hunt with your fullchoke A5:s or do you just want them orginal ?
I did some hunting with my first A5/16 and it was the " standard 040"
Well it was fun shooting the birds my older hunting pal dont even see, but i have never miss so compleatly with any gun before ...

My wife does not hunt shoot or like Guns. I bought her 3 Sweet Sixteen anyway.

Peter I am glad you are the President of the Sweedish Chapter of the Sweet Sixteen collectors association.

You seem to be an excellent ambassador.

I don't hunt. The birds don't show up when you yell "Pull" so I get bored. When I take my full choked guns out I shoot spreader loads to compensate. Of course, I don't tell my friends about the spreaders, just that I'm shooting a full choke...

Very nice gun! I know you are more shooter than collector so I cringe as I say have fun.

If you lived in South Dakota I would trade you one of my $1,000 Sweet Sixteen for it.

PS they have a reputation of not being very durable. Receiver is subject to cracks and the finish will show wear just from light carry.
