I get all the emails from CSMC I assume everyone else does, but the mailings I used to get by post are nearly gone completely.

I can't for the life of me recall an "announcement" of this latest offering. I mean, the information distribution for the Inverness was massive, a barrage complete with multiple emails as well as brochures mailed through the post.

Does this ring true with anyone else, or is this a case of failed memory or insta-delete from my emails? Has an actual "cut-off" of the introductory offer been stated?


I got the email on it this morning and friends have reported the catalogue with this "new Winchester styled Inverness" arriving in yesterday's post.

Maybe they could make a model 21 pump gun or even a model 21 semi-auto. whistle

Did y'all notice this one has the long tangs without any extra charge?

Glad I cancelled my order after they had my PIF for a year. Handled another one in Tulsa the other day. Besides the fact it wouldn't close (just a minor point) it just didn't do anything to excite me. No "soul", just another machine made O/U.

Original 21 marketing strategy trumpeted strength, durability, etc. Regarding aesthetics we read about "clean lines, ruggedness", etc. I don't think John Olin would roll over in his grave if anyone suggested aesthetics were secondary. To repeat, that's how they were marketed. So it's not bashing 21s.

I like 21s, still have my 20 ga guns. They are great at the range, and can handle fast 1 oz field loads all day every day, Sundays included.

But here we take an O/U action that is already plenty strong, add 21-"styled" reinforcements to simulate the least appealing aspect of the original. Or are those really lightening cuts not made on the Inverness?

As for reinforcements on autos, it's already been done by Colt (M16A2, and A3 frame reinforcements). Of course, those were to add strength in the event the butt was used as a sledge. Kinda doubt Tony was thinking along those lines.

Naming this gun the Model 21 o/u is a marketing move by CSM and I understand that, but it is going to cause confusion down the road. It certainly won't have the impact of John Olin's sxs, but it will, at some point, have to be explained when they are brought up in conversation.

"What's that guy shooting down there?"

"Oh, he's shooting a Model 21."

"Nice, I like those sxs's."

"Oh, it's not a sxs, it's an o/u."

"Huh, I never knew Winchester made an o/u AND a sxs called the Model 21."

"Oh, they didn't, this gun is made by Connecticut Shotgun."

"Who?"

M-21 pumps?

M-12s already have frame reinforcements front and rear, albeit no points. Extend the rear reinforcements....reverse the order of model digits....12 becomes 21...

Oh, and M-42s have them, too. The sideplate would be a minor complication nowadays. Lessee....42 divided by 2 is....
