Is this for real: Winchest M21 16 gauge with a straight grip…

I don’t know a thing about Winchester Model 21s. Let me rephrase that. I know just enough about Winchester M21 to wonder if this 16 gauge with double triggers, 28″ barrels, and a straight grip is the real thing. I’ve seen all these features on other M21 double barrel shotguns, but I’ve never seen them all together on a sixteen.

The oddest looking this on this side-by-side is the stock. Even though the gun has a long triggerguard, I just can’t convince myself that the stock is original. So what do you think? If there are any M21 experts out there, let us know. Is this gun the real deal, or just another franken double trying to pass itself off as an American classic?

  1. Yeah, I know what you mean. The shape of the stock seems off, too. The whole thing looks a bit rough to me. If it’s all real, it has to be a rare gun.

    Thanks for your post.

  2. You didn’t give us a good picture of the entire trigger guard. Nor did you tell us the serial number or whether there are ejectors or extractors. I’m guessing low four digit serial number and “I would buy it at the right price”.

  3. Hey – whine to the seller. I’m just posting what they put up.

    Cabela’s has it, so you can drop them an email and all that other info.

    Thanks for the post.
