I bought a used Model 21 that was the gloss finished with wooden stocks.I thought with its tip-up design I could carry shotshells while fishing in snake territory. I've not had any feeding problems as of yet. I have used a hundred rounds of CCI Stinger with complete reliability. However at 7 yards my pattern looks as if it came out of a shotgun.It looks as if I may have some imperfections at the crown which I'll have a gunsmith look at. My Beretta 950 .25 auto is so accurate that I can consistantly hit spent shotgun shells at 7 yards. I even harvested a squirrel at 15 yards during hunting season. I won't get rid of this one but I sure wish that .22 would shoot as well. I'll keep trying. Could be shooter error.
