The Parker is the most noted vintage American double shotgun in the world and has more fans than all of the other major makers. They are wonderful guns with a classic look and they made about 250,000 guns in all. When looking for a lightweight Parker for upland birds or a casual day on the sporting clays course you will see the Parker VH 20ga. offered for sale quite often, so they are not a rare gun. In fact, they made about 10,000. So, how do you know which one to buy. Most all you see will have been altered, or worn thin of finish from hard use, or stocks cut or replaced with after-market wood, screws buggered, etc. Most are extractor guns with less desirability and resale value. It is extremely hard to find a VHE 20 gauge in unaltered factory condition. THOSE are the guns that are the most sought after, that will gain in value the most over the years, and bring the most pride of ownership for most buyers. This Parker, sn221562 made in 1927 is one of the cleanest you will see for some time. It has 98% blue, 35% factory case color, perfect screws, perfect mirror bores, perfect wood-to-metal fit, and a stock that is factory original and unaltered ending in the factory butt plate. The wood has nice figure for a VHE grade gun, with excellent checkering and nary a split or crack anywhere, and great shooting dimensions. With the 26" Vulcan Steel barrels choked IC/M, weighing under 6lbs. and perfectly dead on the hinge pin, it is the perfect upland gun that can also knock down some clay targets when asked to do so. Most Parker 20ga. guns weigh over 6 1/4lbs. so if you like a lightweight bird gun to traverse hill and dale, don’t let this one elude you! THIS IS A VFI CERTIFIED GUN, WITH 90 DAY SHOOTING WARRANTY. We have stripped the action and forend iron to the smallest parts, cleaned all in the ultrasonic cleaner, inspected each part for integrity, lubricated and reassembled, so we know this gun is good to go for another generation of service. This is an investment quality Parker and will continue to gain value as you enjoy its use. You will not be disappointed in this gun, and it is affordably priced. Thanks for looking!
