Very rare Parker DHE 20ga with original 30" barrels made for famed Parker Shooter Guy Lovelace and shipped to Tufts Lyon Co. in Los Angeles, CA for Guy Lovelace. Lovelace is easily googled and found in many shooting results as a champion shooter. He is also pictured on the rare Parker Bros 1905 calendar! I have some research and photos on email to go along with the gun to the successful purchaser.
Made on a "0" frame with splinter forend, straight stock, double triggers and original skeleton buttplate. This gun with several special order features which are mentioned in the PGCA letter (photo included), most importantly is the forend checkering which calls for the forend to be checkered all over- this is the only factory original fully checkered original DHE 20ga I have seen. It also has wood that is just stunning - showing incredible fiddleback and color.
The gun remains in pleasing untouched original condition with about 20% original case color. Barrels are excellent with about 75% original toned blue. The stocks are sound (no cracks) and retain about 85% of their original finish wish scattered handling marks from time in the blind. Bores are brilliant and shiny. Mechanics are crisp.
If you have been looking for a real factory documented Parker Bros. California shipped duck club gun, look no further. This gun is all original, untouched and as rare as hens teeth. The gun is priced at $10,950 shipped to your FFL. Please dont hesitate to contact me at (704) 280-2382 or via PM on this site with any questions or reasonable offers.
