    So many of the Winchester Model 21 Trap guns -- usually with 32-inch Full/Full barrels -- have straight English gripped stocks.

    Have also seen several Ithaca SBT guns with straight English gripped stocks.

    Why do so many of the vintage Trap guns have straight English gripped stocks ?

    Straight grips were a hold over from British game guns. Work well on driven game with 2 trigger shotguns. Nowadays, we've got this right hand fixation, with PG, finger grooves, palm swells, etc. Whatever trips your trigger, LOL
