Our Assessment: We have never seen a Remington Model 16 before, which turns out to be a very interesting rifle. It is very well made with unique features, like the way the tube is removed from the buttstock through the bottom of the buttplate, and the curved arms of the elevator for the rear sight. This is a real collector find for the Remington enthusiast. Please see page 864 of “The Standard Catalog of Firearms: by Dan Shideler for more details.
