    I was lucky enough to use a friend's M21 Winchester for a round of skeet. Great gun, pointed easily, smoked the targets .... kicked like a mule. I think guns like this are better suited for field use.

    Back in the day, maybe 50 years ago, The Winchester shooter Fred Missildine used a M21 for trap doubles. He won a few tornaments with it.

    Most side-by-sides have different stock designs than those on guns designed for trap and skeet shooting. SxS stocks are usually not designed with reduced felt recoil in mind or for the shooting forms used for trap and skeet and can cause problems during a long day of shooting.

    Bill, I've shot a cheaper sidexside at trap (Win. 24) and did pretty good with it considering the field stock. I did change the pitch and added a higher comb in order to shoot trap with it. A heavy days model pad and some black electrical tape and bingo-bango, I won some cash and trophies with it! I sure got ribbed though when the guys found out my "secret" to success! :) Of course that was many years ago when I was a youngster. Hap

    I am not an old timer unless you are comparing me to a high school kid. But i do own a M21 winchester and am trying to con a widow out of a Parker doubles gun. The model 21 will shoot doubles just fine.

    There has been lots witten about bb'l flip on SXS's causing missed targets. I don't know the truth about that subject.

    I suppose you'd want the bb'ls regulated so pattrns would cross/meet at a predetermined yardage; that distance which you normally break targets.-Jerald

    Well, it comes to mind that Purdy, Holland and Holland and many other of the most expensive and famous English guns in the world are S/S doubles. Indeed, Beretta, Perazzi and most of the great Italian gunmakers make a few VERY expensive S/S doubles. In fact, to this day, if you want to spend as much as possible on a shotgun you are probably going to be buying a S/S double.

    Gee, I wonder if those guns shoot good? As my son would say: "Ya think?" Jake

    In 1950, Mr. S.W.Brown of Fayetteville, NC took NC State HAA Championship with a score of 450 X 500. He was shooting a Winchester Mod 21. His nephew tells me, that it was a borrowed gun at that. J.Woolsey

    I enjoy old trap guns and shoot an Ithaca sxs trap gun made in 1902, Remington 1894 F grade trap, LC Smith Crown grade Trap. I shoot better with my old sbt guns though. Ross
