Parker VHE 16 Gauge SxS
UNTOUCHED, FACTORY 90% CASE COLOR, 28”
General Specs: Parker, Year 1910, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 5oz, Side-by-Side
Serial Number: 152999
Bird season is here, the leaves are turning, the pheasants are cackling, and the grouse are flushing. Time for a new Parker for your upland season, but how to choose? There are many available and more than just price that influences your decision. You want a gun that will serve your needs, function properly without letting you down or costing you more money on repairs, and a gun that looks good and makes you proud. This fine Parker, sn152999 made in 1910, is a very rare find in that it is “as found” and retains 90% factory blue, 90% factory vivid case color, excellent screws, perfect wood-to-metal fit, barrels tight on breech face and hinge pin like a new gun, no cracks or repairs to the wood…just a perfect example of a fine Parker VHE in high condition (the wood could use a clean-up and restoration if you like your wood to look near new. We can do that for $550 within 6 weeks of your purchase, including recut checkering). There are a LOT of Parker VH 16ga. guns for sale, but only about 2500 with ejectors, and only a few with lots of factory condition that have not been buggered up, or otherwise made less desirable by the addition of a pad, poorly done restorations, or replaced parts. Examine the details closely and you will notice the superior wood to metal fit, near perfect checkering, excellent screws, original dogs head buttplate, great shooting dimensions, and very nice factory original case color remaining on this fine Parker, setting it apart from the others. Additionally, this is a “VFI CERTIFIED” gun, meaning it has been stripped to its smallest parts, cleaned in our Ultrasonic Cleaner, all parts inspected for function and soundness, lubricated properly, and re-assembled. The VFI CERTIFIED GUNS have a 90-day mechanical warranty and will need no additional maintenance for decades to come. This Parker 16ga. is on a #1 frame, but you will note she weighs like an “O” frame gun at 6lbs. 5oz. and balancs right on the hinge pin. Most Parker 16ga. guns weigh 1/2lb. more! A finer Parker upland gun you will not find at this price. Thanks for looking, and take this Parker for a hunt!
