I recently sold a DT Model 21, in not nearly so nice a condition, but with the later version of the butt stock, for about 1/2 again that. It had ejectors.
I had another, also with the later version of the butt, but without ejectors, in similar condition to the one I reference in the preceding paragraph, that I sold more than 10 years ago for only a little bit less than what you paid.
I'd say two things: (1) You did very well; and (2) Model 21 prices make no sense at all.
And like Dogon, I'd love to find a Model 21 with DT in 16 for something near what you paid. My "I'd go to the mat with the wife to spend the money" grail gun was a Model 21, 16 gauge, straight grip, DT, splinter, 28 inch barrels weighing not more than 6.5 pounds. Price was irrelevant. I've never seen one in more than 25 years of searching and in the interim have been seduced by hammer shotguns, so I'll never have to experience the spousal displeasure such a find would cause.
