I'm no expert but my "42" has a 3" chamber with a modified choke and I know for sure that it is just a field grade. I didn't even know they ever made a 2 1/2" chamber so it sounds like you have some sort of rare bird.

My cousin had a Skeet Grade. He traded it for a Charles Daly 20 gauge O/U in the mid 70's. At the time a good trade, he regrets it now.

The 2 1/2" chambered 42s are rare and sought after by collectors. The value will be higher than an identical 42 with a 3" chamber. The blue book I have says add 25% for any 42 with a 2 1/2" chamber.

An original vent rib 2 1/2" gun is very scarce. Schwing's book may have a chart indicating how many were made in various configurations. I assume your gun is serial numbered 1954 production or later, the only period where Winchester marketed vent rib Model 42s.
