S&W has a detailed book of all weapons sold under the S&W name. I was luck and found a 916A at a gun show at st. Charles mo. in 1995 for 75 bucks. hopethis helps Steve

The 916 slide action was produced between 1972 and 1978. MSRP was between $136 and $163. Now a ANIB is about $225 and EXC is $185. Darrell.

about 32 years ago and its cost would be about $300

Contrary to the previous answer, S&W did make a 916A pump-action shotgun (as I'm sure the questioner knows), but it was swiftly withdrawn from production and most examples were recalled, as they were prone to barrel ruptures. A 916A 'Special' was produced, but it was nickel-plated, rather than stainless steel. Hope that helps.

The 916A does not have an interchangeable barrel- the owners manual indicates that barrels are not removeable, but are permanently installed at the factory. The link below will take you to the owner's manual for the S&W Eastfield 916A.
