Winchester Model 21 Catalog Code G2100B

I need help. Please let me know if you have a Winchester Model 21 with the Cody Letter indicating a Catalog Code of G2100B. These should be all special order guns, but not necessarily "Custom". All I need is the gauge, barrel length, and the chokes. Thanks, I can explain if you want more information.

I have a 1940 production 20gauge 26" barrels choked Cylinder and Improved Modified. The Cody letter identifies it as G2100B.
I am curious as to what you are researching.

Sir: Your default catalog code (G2100B) makes since because in 1940 there were no listings for a standard grade 20 gauge with a 26 inch barrel, plus all standard grade guns during 1933 through 1945 were listed with M/F chokes. Yours is yet another example of a special order gun for the year purchased. If your gun were a 1949 through 1959 standard grade 20 gauges with 26 inch barrels and choked IC/M it would have been assigned a catalog code of G2116B.

My research is designed to show that the cody letters for all model 21's with the catalog code G2100B were special order guns. Please don't confuse special order from custom, special order only means that the gun was ordered with at least one feature that was not cataloged for that year. Thanks for your response.
