Another fantastic Winchester 21 Special ordered for Larry Russo c/o R.J Enorec of Saddle Brook, New Jersey in 1972. Lettered by Cody Firearms Museum, and original features confirmed by them. This Trap style gun has 2 barrels, 1st a 30″ Vent Rib barrel in a matte blue, White ivory bead sights. Marked “CUSTOM BUILT BY WINCHESTER FOR LAWERENCE RUSSO JR” on rib, and common Winchester barrel markings on left barrel. 3″ wedge shaped tight scroll work by breech. Underside of barrels is marked “WINCHESTER PROOF STEEL” choked “IMP MOD” & “FULL”. Barrel flats are appropriately marked with Winchester proofs and serial number. 2nd barrel is the same except in 28″ length. Water table is engine turned and marked “MADE IN USA MODEL 21 / WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. / NEW HAVEN, CONN.” Auto ejectors, Non Automatic safety, and single gold selective trigger. The side of the receiver is fully engraved with dense flowing scroll patterns surrounding finely detailed hunting dog and bird scenes with a pointer on the right, setter on the left, and a pair of pheasants on the underside. The birds and dogs are inlaid with gold. The fences are engraved with a deep relief oak leaf. The trigger guard is engraved with a matching scroll and a gold inlaid portrait of a dog with matching scroll on the tangs and lever. The letter notes a change order to the stock, presumably the butt pad was replaced with the traditional checkered butt. The full fancy American walnut Pistol grip Monte Carlo stock and trap style beavertail foregrip have been expertly checkered with the “21-B” pattern which includes multiple Fleur-de-lis motifs in a flowing outline. Blued pistol grip cap marked in gold “GRAND AMERICAN”. Brass oval monogram plate is bare. Included is custom original trunk style leather case with a zipper canvas cover. Canvas cover with gold embossed with the initials “L.R. Jr.” Condition: Excellent Plus as originally ordered! We would be surprised to know this gun was used in even one round of trap. The fitted case shows the only real wear, leather handle is pulling away from box. Bluing is 98%, Only marks on the metal we could find were on the tang behind the trigger. Wood stock is excellent with only a couple of discreet blems. One of the beaver tails has the slightest nick at the most forward spot practically underneath the barrel. Lock up and functionally like new. Missing cleaning stick, snap caps and cleaning accessories.
