Winchester M21 16ga. Pigeon Grade - 2 BARREL SET, CASED, AS NEW!
If you review Ned Schwing's book on the Model 21, the tables showing production of the Custom Shop Model 21 guns indicates there were no Pigeon Grades produced in 16ga. during the years of 1969 to 1982. In fact only 37 Pigeons in all gauges were built 1 when the Pigeon Grade was discontinued. The gun offered here, SN32202, is a 2 barrels set, in a factory case, in brand new condition. This is a finely built Winchester of extraordinary beauty. Rarity aside, this is a wonderfully balanced, 7lb. 3oz. target and game gun extraordinaire. With finely figured wood, 21- A carved checkering pattern, this is a gun sure to impress you and your shooting buddies. Number 6 engraved, fancy wooded Model 21's are highly sought after and represent a sound investment opportunity that is far more rewarding than paper stocks.
The 28" and 30" barrels retain 99.5% factory blue, mirror bores, 28" choked WS1/WS2, 30" choked M/F (.013/.027), internal bore diameter 28" .669 both barrels, 30" .670 both barrels, minimum barrel wall thickness .029 for all barrels, no dents or scratches, 2 3/4" chambers, ribs tight, barrels tight on breech face and hinge pin, extra engraving on breech of barrels, all bright metal engine turned or "jeweled", a perfect 2 barrel set to cover all of your upland game and clay target needs.
The action is 21-6 engraved, action tight with lever centered, ejectors strong and timed, SST Gold trigger with crisp pulls, 5.25lbs. pull right and left trigger, trigger guard 99.5% blue, auto safety, perfect screws, outstanding clear sharp engraving with deep carved oak leaf fences, all in perfect mechanical order.
The AAA Fancy American walnut is fully flame figured and oil finished, 21-A carved checkering pattern, black ebony inlay in forend, no cracks, splits or repairs anywhere, 14 1/2" LOP to factory butt plate, 2 1/2" drop in heel, 1 1/2" drop at comb, neutral cast (can be bent to your specs for about $200 within 14 days of purchase), superb wood to metal fit, a stunning set of wood on this Model 21!
There is little or no wear on this fine Winchester. The gun is spectacular in every way, and if you like the 16 gauge guns, this may be THE ONLY PIGEON GRADE 2 barrel set you will ever have a chance to purchase. Weighing 7lbs. 1oz. with the 28's, and 7lbs. 3oz. with the 30's, and balanced perfectly between your hands, you will always be proud shooting your favorite game(s) with this Winchester Pigeon Grade 2 barrel set. Priced to sell, don't let this one get away!
