Has anyone owned, shot or handled a Blaser F16 Game shotgun?  I am interested in any comments on this shotgun.  Any information is appreciated.

Why do they keep naming all these guns after cool airplanes.

I googled the Baser F16 and I can offer only that I like the looks of the gun and that the Germans went all out engineering it into a price range of $3700. to $4000.+. I would also say that based on its austere looks, but for wood, I don't know why they did that? Course there's not much engraving on the F16 in RDG post but there is a lot of engineering. I think it is a young man's gun or a young minded man's gun. To my way of thinking they should have used engineering to bring it in around $1500. but they know their target market better than I. I still use a flip phone.

I have never cared the look of their rfles either but I am sure they are top notch.

They are heavy, heavier than the posted weight. They weigh closer to 8 lbs than 7. So for a game gun not so much.

I don't own a Blazer, but have handled and shot both the F16 and the F3, as a good friend of mine is now working for them. Now, the F3 is their newer, lesser expensive gun that comes in both a Sporting Clays and a Gamegun configuration. The F3 Gamegun is under 8 pounds. The one I shot was 7 pounds 9 ounces. Still heavy for most people as a gamegun, per se. 

 

The 8 pound F3 Sporting Clays guns are much heavier -- 8 1/2 to 8 3/4 pounds. They do not make a Gamegun for that model.

Great mechanics and one of the best and fastest triggers ever made. They make a fine competition gun, but as mentioned these carry too heavy for a game gun. 

 

Would make a great Dove gun or one for stationary pass shooting.

Agreed, I had an F16 Sporter which was great but I’d don’t see that the F16 offers much as a game gun, better options out there in that category.

If they made a 20 gauge version that weighed 6-6.5 lb they would do great!
