by no means is the 121 obsolete or second rate,,,its alot older and very unique for a Benelli shotgun,,estimated 50,000 built of all models between 1978-84,,out of that figure maybe 7% or so are for special purpose use,,,a fairly rare item in todays shotgun society,,,I would like to see a picture of your 121,,,, share and compare notes :cool: -------M1014

I don't have the capability to send photos. That's probably good since I take horrible photos anyway.

Mine is just a normal 121 M1 with the exception of the stock finish. I got bored with the standard oil finish and gave it a nice even cherry/Danish oil finish. It didn't really start looking good until the 5th or 6th coat, but she's got a much nicer red glow to her now.

While I had the stock off I also repaired a small crack that appeared at the top of the stock behind the receiver. I assume it was caused by recoil. A little glue and it's hard to spot now.

I'll see if I can't find someone with a digital camera that could post some photos of it.

BTW, I'm glad to hear it's not obsolete.
