    For anyone interested:

    I just got off the phone with Browning to get the details on this special run. They told me that they will be making about 15 of the Gran's deliverable in August. They will also offer the 16 Ga in other model Citori's but I just checked on the Gran.

    According to Browning, they have 5 of the Gran's on b/o now so I went ahead and got my local guy to lock one in for me.

    billhanusbirdguns.com has a short write-up about the special run if anyone is interested.

    Thanks for the heads up. I got one of the standard Lightnings in 16ga when they did the last run about 6 or 7 years ago--would love to have a gran but not sure I can justify the cost--maybe trade my other one?? :rolleyes:

    I have a 12 Ga Gran Lightning and a 12 Ga Field Grade Lightning. As much as I hate to, I will probably sell the Field Grade Lightning to help justify the cost.

    I hate selling guns but I really want the 16 Ga Gran.

    Mine has a 28in barrel and decent wood--I've been a 16ga fan since my dad bought me my first shotgun, a Mossberg bolt action 16ga in 1966. I also bought a Remington 1100 in 16ga when those came out a few years ago--gave that one to my youngest son (now 32). The Grans have some of the nicest wood of all shotguns--hard not to love them!
