That is a very nice Purdey but in a configuration that is not in high demand. Far too much money in my opinion.

In my opinion that gun only has great value if it was made by Winchester and engraved by Winchester, thus rendering it a rare collectible. Anything else and it’s a toy with no collector value imho. The Model 21’s made by CSMC are not collectible in the true sense of the word, at least not to me. Oddly, it was not mentioned in the ad whether the gun ‘letters’ as an original by the Cody Firearms Museum (who have the Win 21 records).

I handled and pointed it on and off for a couple of hours. I love it, feels great in the hands. The beavertail isn't nearly as obnoxious as it looks in Steve's site's photos. Fits me perfectly.

Where do you see it being correctly/fairly priced, SKB?

Nice gun but so much to choose from these days. I think that gun will move mid thirties.

JR; Have you researched the ST Purdey guns? The older ST guns were often times a problem. They had a “3-pull” mechanism, at least that’s what Ken Eversull told me. Cost me a bundle to try to get one right and it never was. Traded her down the road. You may have made a good decision on passing on that gun. I hear the Boss ST mechanisms are good. Anyway, as a general rule, I think one may be better off sticking with double triggers in terms of English guns. Just my opinion, but I learned that through the school of hard knocks.....been there, done that.

Single triggers don’t have to be English to be troublemakers. Although, I had big trouble with a English ST.

Best,
Ted

So true, but isn't it great that you can buy a Beretta, or nearly any other well made Italian ST gun, and have a 99+% chance of getting a great one that will last for tens of thousands of cycles without a hint of trouble, for a fraction of the cost of a Purdey?

But then, one wouldn't have a Purdey, would one?

I was on a dove field yesterday with a local shooting a Purdey Pigeon gun made in 1906. 30" barrels proofed for 1 1/8 oz. with 2 3/4 chambers. I don't know what was paid as it was a gift from his wife. He was as good a shot as I've seen on a dove field and worthy of the beauty of a shotgun. He kicks himself in the butt for not buying another that someone had bored the chambers to 3". It made the rounds at various auctions that no one would touch until it finally sold for $7800. It would have made a composed pair with his other one. Gil
