Parker VH 16 Gauge – 95% CASE COLOR HIGH CONDITION, FACTORY 95%  Guns > Shotguns > Parker Shotguns
Description: Parker VH 16 Gauge Side-by-Side Shotgun


General Specs: Parker, Year 1926, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 10oz, SxS

Serial Number: 218578

I get to see a lot of fine Parker guns in my business, and high-grade guns to boot, but this fine Parker, sn218578 built in 1926, stands out because of its CLEAN, UNMOLESTED condition. Look at the wood to metal fit, the checkering, the screws...they are factory original and superb. All the finishes, including the wood finish, are factory original and untouched. Virtually 95% factory case color remains on the receiver, bold and vivid (keep in mind the photo flash washes out some of the vividness. The colors show better in person), 93% factory original blue on the barrels, and 98% factory finish on the wood. There is not one crack or split or repair anywhere in the wood, and the gun measures 14 3/16” to the factory dogs head butt plate. The 28" barrels have no dings or pits, some carry wear near the forend and muzzle, a few light handling marks, mirror perfect bores, unaltered 2 9/16" chambers, rough barrel weight stamped at 3-6, and crisp clear lettering and rib matting. Even the factory jewelling at the breech face remains evident (see photos). You can look a long time and you will be hard pressed to find a more genuine and crisp VH 16. These guns are still a great investment, especially with high condition. This is clearly an investment quality shotgun that has been carried and therefore can be used and shot with no loss of value. If you want to see what near new, factory Parker case colors looked like, just check this one out. This fine Parker has it all; high factory condition, desirable features, good shooting dimensions, and is listed in the Parker Identification and Serialization book as being shipped just as you see her now. There are a lot of Parker VH 16’s you can buy for less money, but if you look closely, they will not be a gun in untouched, high factory condition. NICE! Thanks for looking!
