Parker DH 16 Gauge SxS Shotgun
"O" FRAME, 95% FACTORY COLOR, GORGEOUS!
General Specs: Parker, Year 1906, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 2oz, Side-by-Side
Serial Number: 140136
There are some guns that just seem special, and a Parker 16ga. on an "O" frame (20ga. frame) is just such a gun. More than a 1/2 pound lighter than a typical Parker 16ga, the "0" frame 16 is highly sought after by today's upland hunter. They are not common, and to find one on the nicely decorated DH Grade format is a treat. This Parker DH, sn140136 made in 1906, is stunning with 99% factory damascus pattern, 95% factory case colors, perfect bores…no flaws anywhere. The serialization book shows it is configured just as it left the factory. They only made 458 damascus DH 16ga. guns. There can only be a handful on the highly desirable "O" frame. At 6lbs. 2oz. it is a delightful gun that will not wear you out by the end of the day. The wood on this Parker is incredible, with full flame and feather-crotch figure finished in a hand-rubbed oil finish, a 14 ¾” LOP to the skeleton butt plate, and modern shooting dimensions (shown below) and perfect mechanics. This unusual combination of features makes it a very desirable Parker the likes of which you may never again see for sale, so don’t hesitate on “pulling the trigger” with this purchase. This little Parker will be a joy to carry afield or to your favorite clays course and we don’t expect it will be for sale for any length of time. This is the kind of Parker that will continue to gain value as you enjoy its use with its high factory original condition on all the metal, very rare configuration on the “O” frame, low production numbers, awesome stock dimensions, and knock-out wood that is eye candy to all gun lovers! Thanks for looking at our fine guns.
