Have been blessed with 16 ga. SxSs, pumps, semi autos but no O/U. Took care of that have a Marlin Model 90 with DT comeing, 28" barrels choked mod. and full. Should be here later this week. Have a number of O/Us but all with SSTs, except an old Browning Superposed with DTs, and I prefer DTs on my 2 barreled shotguns.

A Merkel 200 awaits you somewhere. I want one in 12. You can shop around and find a used one for around 4, but a 16 ga. narrows the used gun field.

Popplecop, you probably already know this but your 90 is not going to pattern m/f. my bet is closer to f/OH MY GOD.

The 16 gauge Marlin 90's choked mod/full run .016 and .024 based on my gun and conversations with other 16 gauge Marlin 90 shooters The .024 full barrel is really in that improved modified to light full area, so it's not as tight as you'd expect.

I opened my under barrel to .007 for a .007 & .024 combination (IC/IM), and it's a pretty versatile setup. I knocked down just about every pheasant I shot at with it last year until I had some missfires. I had to replace those old striker springs. Mine is now ready for another 70 years.

I just picked up a Marlin model 90 in 16. I have a thread about it here with pictures. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=224985

What can you guys tell me about it?

My 12 ga. Model 90 with 28" barrels that my dad bought used for me in 1957 or '58 measures .013 and .025 ( About Skeet II and L. Full? ) Using a cheap, Quick Check Bore Gauge, it measures Cylinder and Mod! Although Model 90's with 28" barrels (regardless of the gauge) were generally choked Mod/full, I've found a lot of variations in bore and choke diameters gun to gun. The only way to know for sure how it will shoot is to pattern it with a number of different loads.
