Stevens is doing their part to help keep the 16-gauge game going with their new 555 Enhanced series over-and-under shotgun.
Using stacked 28-inch chrome-lined barrels with a satin finish, the break-action double stays light through the use of an aluminum receiver, coming in at a total weight of 6.45-pounds. Overall length with the Turkish Imperial walnut stock and forend is 45.5-inches. The action, with auto shell ejectors, has a manual safety and a single, selective mechanical trigger.
The gun, built by KOFS in Turkey, is one of that company’s extensive line of SXS and OAU doubles. MSRP is set at $879, which should be a bit less over-the-counter. For those who want a plainer 16, Stevens is also importing a standard 555 with a blued receiver without the engravings for $705, suggested.
