    I see an awful lot of doubles at local pawn shops. Have you checked yours?

    You might have more luck with the red-headed brother called the 23 or 24

    Yes I did, those ARE all shooters; maybe not in a price range YOU like, but they are there. Did you even b other to look at the others, like the 23 and 24? A bit more palatable if budgets are tight.

    Personally, I fine the 21 to be too heavy for anything except volume target shooting

    I seriously doubt you will find a 21 under $4K unless it is thrashed, especially the heavy duck version in 20. Good luck though, and if you get lucky, post pics or it didn't happen! :D

    If you ever decide to choose between these two models (23 vs 24), I'd go with the Model 23; a very under-rated shotgun imo.

    20 ga. model 21's are going to be even more expensive than a 12 ga.

    I hunted with a sxs (actually several) for many years and decided that putting a 4K gun in a duck blind wasn't real smart. Might work for clays but most people prefer O/U's for that.

    I had a model 23 for awhile but found it too heavy to hunt with and the triggers were crap. Those were made in Japan.

    Not hard to find if you have lot of disposable income. Matter of fact CSMC could probably make new one if you can afford to pay them.

    Unfortunately, finding a reasonably priced shooter grade M21 is kinda like finding a reasonably priced driving grade 1968 Shelby Cobra. Not impossible, but about as rare as hen's teeth.

    And you are still going to pay through the nose for it.
