All I can find in my book regarding the 101 Super Grade with double triggers is a reference and photograph of said model stating that they were made for ‘Continental sale’. This example has a straight stock. Other Super Grade 101’s have a single trigger and a POW grip. 
Winchester 101’s are one of the most complex series of shotguns Winchester ever made, with a multitude of differences even between very similar grades and models.

Thanks for reply Scully, it just got me thinking why so few with 2 triggers , I personally prefer this as I like sxs with the same setup ,

I always think that a straight hand stock is more conducive to double triggers and a pistol or semi pistol to a single trigger. Many of the earlier O/Us (Lincoln F.A.I.R etc.) had double triggers with a straight hand stock.

Double trigger over/under guns are not very common.  Double triggers are usually found with either straight hand, very slight 'half' pistol grip or Prince of Wales grip.

Apart from English o/u's (which are in themselves uncommon and very expensive), you see a few Merkels with double triggers and even fewer Berettas.  I personally prefer a double trigger.

Double triggers are perfect for a game gun so that instant barrel selection can be made . Not really  possible with a barrel selector on the safe button .

Nothing against Chapuis, but I have Merkels (which are superb value (i.e very cheap) second hand).

No argument from me, cracking guns and more available with the 2 triggers than many other makes. I just liked the weight and the smooth lines of the C35.

Which is a completely unnecessary complication in my eyes.

Thank you all for your input, I agree double triggers better for game (why fix what isn't broke) but as many opinions as men , anyhow I think its brill  , better than my photos

Winchester: An American Legend.

By R. L . Wilson. If you like Winchester’s it’s a book well worth having.
