  1. #1

    Default Stevens 555E 16 gauge

    Just stumbled across adds for them on GunBroker. Any body have one yet? I never knew they existed & am curious to see & try one on.

    Does anyone have a 555 of any gauge on here? They don't get a good review on sgw. I am curious how your opinion of them are. Thanks

    One of my hunting buddy has one. It's in 12ga and he likes it. He said it's on the light side- easier to carry in the field. But because it is lighter than his other shotguns, you'll notices a little more recoil.
    There are good & bad reviews. He said the gun has never given him any problems, and he's happy with it.

    I have been curious about the Stevens 555 as well.
    I'll be picking up a Browning new A5 Sweet 16 in the near future then may look at a Stevens 555 down the road.

    Just checked the Stevens site and they only show the 555E available in 12, 20, 28 & 410.

    Yes.....no 16 gauge though. I have the 20 and 28. My only complaint is the recoil pad is too thick, but othan that no misfires and is a dream to carry!!

    I have it in a 12 gauge. It is great for those days in the field but would not recommend for shooting clays. The weight of the gun is light and you can definitely feel the recoil.

    No...They are scaled to gauge:

    I own a 555 in 28 Ga. and it is my "Go To" grouse and quail gun; I like it very much.
