Is there a breakdown on these?  For both models?  Would unusual chokes such as skeet and skeet have been an option?  Good for clay pigeon shooting.

I would think a Skeet/Skeet (or maybe WS1/WS2 chokes for the nostalgic) Model 21 would be pretty awesome. I don’t know if the skeet shooters of the day were Model 21 fans, most seem to have been hunters or Trap shooters. I’d like to have an old Winchester Skeet gun for my “retro” days. I’ve never shot a good SxS but the 21 sure sounds like fun. Maybe the folks in Connecticut can help us out here.

No idea about the 24, haven’t seen one worth a second look yet.

Any tables or charts out there with the various choke combinations and production figures?

The catalogs of the time listed the barrel length and choke combinations for the Model 24. The Model 21 was always a custom order gun. I have seen a Model 21 Skeet gun with a WS1/WS2 choked barrels.
