Have any of you shot the new A5 Sweet Sixteen?

re: New Sweet Sixteen
Hopefully they've reduced the kick on them. I have a 1960s model that will leave a nice bruise.

Don't oil the magazine tube where the brass friction brake rides.

Never heard this. I have always oiled this on both my Belgium Sweet 16 and Light 12. Thanks for the suggestion.

I learned the hard way. My 12 kicked me harder than anything I've ever shot before or since. Way worse than H&R Pardner 10 ga.

The new one isn't like the old one. The new one should have about the same recoil as a Benelli, since it's a Benelli clone.

re: New Sweet Sixteen
I haven't oiled anything myself. Just acquired it 3 years ago and haven't shot it but twice. Can you explain where this brass friction brake is?

. Yes, the rings are inside the forearm and they slide along the magazine tube. There's a brass ring that has a metal c spring around it-that's the friction piece. There are two settings, for lo brass and high brass loads. The brass ring should be on top of the barrel recoils spring regardless of set for hi or lo brass. Google for hi vs. Lo brass settings and ring position.

Do you know how to remove the forearm?

Gotcha. Thanks for the advice. I'll have to look at my humpback 12 gauge as well.
