Barrel length? Single/Double Triggers? Butt Treatment?

Photos would sure help.

A skeet gun in 99% condition would be odd and rare. It was gun someone purchased to shoot; not leave in the closet. Of course skeet and trap guns tend to be in better exterior condition than their field gun cousins. They tend to be worn mechanically even when looking pretty good on the outside. With that said I would look hard for signs of restoration on a "99%" skeet gun. Also sadly I would say the value is not what it was just 5 or 6 years ago even in high condition.

Of course that is just this one guys opinion.

According to Schwing, the SKEET Grade was introduced in 1936.
I'd like to see pictures too.

Winchester was making and heavily advertising Model 21 Skeet Guns by 1932. Here is the page from the 1933 pocket catalogue --



In the early years the Skeet Gun was offered in Tournament, Trap and Custom Built Grades. For 1936, the term Tournament disappeared and it became Standard Grade. From the 1938 Winchester pocket catalogue --





By 1940, the Trap Grade was gone and it was just the Model 21 Skeet Gun Standard Grade. By 1946 it was the Model 21 Skeet Gun. There never was a Model 21 Skeet Grade.

I really don't understand all of the "grades" of 21's but I assume that your reference above is for skeet guns marked Trap??

Tournament skeet grades were made around that time for a couple of years and I have a couple. Bobby

I'm confused.
Schwing page 78 & 79 refers to SKEET Grade
and my 1948 20 gauge 2 barrel set has the same reference stamped on the floorplate...SKEET

The table of contents chapters in the Schwing book for "Barrels and Ribs" (page 78) and for "Stocks and Forearms" (page 108) both reference the "Skeet Grade" -- as distinct from "Tournament Grade".
