Winchester Model 21 Shotguns

Winchester Model 21 Shotguns

The Winchester Model 21 Shotguns was a high-quality American double-barreled side-by-side shotgun designed by Frank F. Burton in 1924 and produced by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company from 1931 to 1959. Winchester’s first double-barreled shotgun, the Model 21 represented Winchester’s attempt at producing a double-barreled shotgun of fine quality.

One of only two Winchester Shotguns to launch a new shotshell is the Model 21 20-gauge, while the other is the Model 42 with a 3-inch .410 bullet. For several years, Winchester and Western managers played with the 3-inch 20 gauge before choosing to offer the new shell in the Model 21. In articles in Outdoor Life, Field & Stream, and The Gun Digest, Jack O’Connor and Warren Page made many references to Winchester’s early experiments.
