Bobski; I was at a trapshoot some 30 years ago in North Platte, NE, when a man with a lovingly held Model 21 with double triggers said to me "The Skeet Two Choke is great for Pheasants."
I don't know if he had both chokes that way, and I don't know if the double triggers were added later. I just didn't know much of anything about a Model 21 at the time. I just remember the incident because he struck me as the kind of guy who had shot a lot of birds and was talking from experience.

Winchester SK-2 was about light modified in constriction (.015) for the older shells without shot cups. Light modified will reach out farther than you think. My experience with older model 21's with WS-1 & WS-2 chokes using today's modern shotshells is that is plenty of choke for upland hunting and most all sporting clays presentations and probably too tight for skeet.

I used a 16 gauge 26" Win M21 'Skeet' for a few decades for rabbits, pheasants and the like. The Sk1 and Sk2 chokes were more than adequate for any upland game. What it was not good for was waterfowl and HeviShot.
Swtiched to a CSMC RBL in 20 gauge for jump shooting ducks.
Had CSMC make me a 16 gauge Fox for most upland with barrels Tuff Coated for non-toxic shot if the need should ever arise.
Have a pair of Rem 332's for geese and ducks with HeviShot.
Never liked steel shot and bismuth is hard to find.
HeviShot outshoots anything, so I switched guns.
Times change. I change.
My hope is that lead will not be outlawed for upland game and for the Club I shoot at, but here in Wisconsin, it it's State land, you must shoot non-toxic shot!
I did shoot geese for a number of years with a Win M21 32" 'DUCK' using Kent #1 Tungsten-matrix 3" shells. Most 'Ducks' are choked F/F, so 50 yd shots were no problem. But HeviShot is better but not in a M21.-Richard
