RARE 20 GAUGE PARKER BHE W/ STRAIGHT GRIP.,26"SN 2392XX.
Gorgeous engraving, fantastic condition, like new.
2-3/4" Chambers. 0 Frame. 26" Acme steel bbls with standard game rib,
are stamped with Parker Overload proofs. "A3" is stamped on water
Bbls are fitted with reinforced splinter. Case hardened action with
nicely filed bead around fences, is engraved with well cut medium
scroll, with a pair of ducks on left side of action, quail on right, and
pair of pointers with flushing quail in western mountain scene on
trigger plate. "PARKER" is engraved on bottom of action, as is typical
for late production guns. Parker single selective trigger is
gold-plated. Trigger guard with scroll on bow, has SN at grip. Nicely
marbled European walnut straight grip buttstock measures 13-3/4" over
skeleton buttplate, and features typical "B" quality checkered side
panels with fleur-di-lis drop points, with matching fancy scalloped
checkering pattern, with mullered borders. A gold oval is on toe line,
engraved with "RS" monogram. Matching splinter ejector forend has
typical steel tip and Deeley type release. Bore diameter: left-.618,
right -.620. Bore restrictions: left -.018, right -.005. Wall thickness:
left -.024, right -.023. Drop at heel: 2-3/8", drop at comb: 1-1/2".
Weight: 6 lbs. .6 oz. LOP: 13-3/4". CONDITION: Excellent.
Bbls retain essentially all of a high quality satin re-black. Action
retains essentially all of its cyanide re-case color, silvered only very
slightly on thumbpiece. Trigger guard and safety button retain nearly
all of a good quality re-blue, slightly flaked. Stocks retain nearly all
of well done oil finish, wood very slightly under metal, sharp edges
slightly rounded, checkering re-cut. Gun matches all specifications in
Parker records except stock is listed as "capped pistol grip". This
straight grip stock is undoubtedly original to this gun, with SN and
grade marking under trigger guard tang, with correct SN on trigger
guard, with no evidence of welding. This discrepancy may be due to
incorrect interpretation of IBM punch cards used by Remington in the
late 1930's. Bores are excellent. Action is tight. Ejectors are in time.
Trigger works. A total of 109 of "BH" doubles were made in 20 ga with Acme steel bbls, with 28 made with 26" bbls.
