Parker GHE 20 Gauge Side by Side
28”, DOUBLE BARREL GUN
General Specs: Parker, Year 1922, 20 Gauge, 6lbs 4oz, SxS
Serial Number: 197890
In the world of vintage American double shotguns, Parker Brothers reigns supreme. The Parker name is synonymous with classic upland double guns. The Parker Gun Collectors Association has done a great job fostering knowledge on these fine guns, which many believe to be America’s finest. The GH Grade is the first level of Parker with game scene engraving with only 990 made in 20ga. with Parker Special Steel barrels, and only about 650 made with ejectors. There are likely less than 600 GHE 20ga. Parkers left on the planet. This fine Parker, sn197890 made in 1922, is a very nice example with some exceptional features that most double gunners love to see, ie lightweight at 6 1/4lbs., excellent mechanics (VFI CERTIFIED, SEE BELOW), 28” M/F barrels with mirror bores, double ivory beads and factory bore diameter, gorgeous wood with excellent modern dimensions, and still harboring the original dog’s head butt plate. The lettering and engraving still strong, and the screws are all in superb condition and clocked properly along the axis of the gun. The chambers and forcing cones have been lengthened to 2 ¾” with 1 ½” taper to the forcing cones, making for a softer shooting, better patterning upland gun. The barrels have tight ribs and fit tight as new on the hinge pin and breech face with the top lever well right of center. The triggers are crisp and break clean at about 4.5lbs. of pull. The original factory wood has gorgeous full feather crotch figure with a hand-rubbed oil finish. We stripped the action and forend iron to the smallest part, cleaned the parts in the Ultrasonic cleaner, inspected all for function and integrity, lubricated and reassembled the gun. This is what we call a VFI CERTIFIED GUN and we have a 90-day mechanical warranty on all such guns we sell. It is hard to find a vintage American double gun 96 years old with great shooting dimensions, but this one has 2 3/8” drop at heel, 1 ½ drop at the comb, and neutral cast which is very modern and shootable. We did not case color the receiver as some people like them natural as it shows the engraving better. We can have Turnbull case colors on the gun within 6 weeks for an added cost and the gun would look like new. What a gorgeous investment quality Parker for your upcoming bird season and just in time for you to enjoy at your favorite gun club for some clay targets to warm you up for the season. Priced to sell, so don’t hesitate or she will be gone. Thanks for looking!
