Description: Winchester Model 21 16ga. CUSTOM GRADE, 2 BARREL SET, CODY LETTER

Here we have an interesting, factory documented Winchester - a 1937 Custom Grade, in 16 gauge??? The Cody Letter helps. Serial number 11925 was originally shipped as a special order Field Grade w/26" M/F barrels, a Regular pistol grip stock, and splinter forend. Returned in the fall of 1983, a repair order called for the re-working of this gun to its present configuration. The prime importance? This is a Winchester Custom Shop Model 21 Custom Grade 16ga. with some nice features. The repair order is clear in some info, not so much with other information. There is a mention "from other barrel duo" indicating the second set of barrels. It shows the gun came in with a straight stock with gold oval free of initials. It indicates the stock may have been from a 12ga. gun. It is clear that the order called for a complete refinish, to include Custom Grade engraving, flatside round receiver, engine turning all parts, reshape and re-checker stock, gold plate trigger, and much more. The result is a great, unusual Custom Grade model 21. How many M21's do you see with a splinter forend? It should please a lot of traditional double gun enthusiasts. Being offered at a special price, this is a grand investment vehicle that will be a gas to shoot at your favorite clays game or upland game. The first set of barrels has a set of 2 3/4" Briley choke tubes installed (SK/IC) giving you the opportunity to order any chokes you want. The second set of barrels have fixed chokes of Cyl/IC (.006 right/.000 left, reversed chokes and so marked) that handle your early season grouse and birds over pointers, as well as your skeet shoots.

Both sets of barrels have: 98% factory blue, all bright metal jeweled, double beads, 26", tight ribs, mirror bores, no pits, dents, or scratches, barrels tight on breech face and hinge, clear sharp lettering and stampings, all in great shape. Set #1 have internal bore diameter of .671 both barrels, existing choke tubes SK/IC (.008/.013), minimum barrel wall thickness of 27 thou right, 24 thou left. Set #2 have fixed chokes, internal bore diameter .668 right, .677 left, minimum wall thickness 32 thou right, 30 thou left.

The action is engraved to Custom Grade, sharp and clear, 96% receiver blue with wear on edges from carry, excellent screws, action tight, lever way right of center, ejectors strong and timed, single selective trigger crisp, 5.25lb. pull right, 4.75lb. pull left, trigger guard retains 92% blue, auto safety, excellent mechanical condition throughout.

The wood is in excellent shape with a few button scratches on the left side of buttstock, excellent Deluxe checkering, great wood to metal fit, all factory done, LOP 14 1/2" to leather covered pad, 2" drop at heel, 1 1/4" drop at comb, neutral cast (can be bent to your specs for about $180 within 10 days of purchase), no cracks or repairs, nicely figured.

Cased in a period Winchester canvas case, this Model 21 balances delightfully in hand and weighs 6 1/2lbs. (a lightweight Model 21!). It is visually pleasing and ultimately versatile with the Briley chokes and two sets of barrels. A very collectible, shootable, Model 21 set that will always be desirable and continue to grow in value.
