FACTORY SKEET GUN, CONDITION, 1 OF 291 MADE!

General Specs: Parker, Year 1935, 12 Gauge, 7lbs 7oz, SxS

Serial Number: 236705

Parker Brothers had its hand in the competitive shooting ring since its early company history. In fact, all the early gun makers did their best to produce special guns to compete in live pigeon shoots and later, trap shoots. Remember, at the turn of the century the shooting sports were a societal highlight, a game for the well-to-do, and well attended and reported in all sporting journals of the day. Parker was well established when along came the game of Skeet in 1926. Parker developed a Skeet configured gun that they sold in all grades save the lowly Trojan. Any double they made after 1925 that had a single selective trigger, ejectors, beavertail forend, 26"-28" barrels with open chokes would have been called a "SKEET GUN". Early guns made before 1937 did not have the "Skeet In; Skeet Out" markings on the barrel flats. Skeet guns could be ordered with any style stock available and many had checkered butts, others were ordered with recoil pads to reduce the effects of accumulated recoil, much like Parker's Trap configured guns. This VHE Skeet gun, sn236705 built in 1935, was shipped with the above-mentioned extras including the checkered butt and is a factory documented skeet gun with a Parker Gun Collector Ass. Letter as part of the package. They only made 291 VHE Skeet guns in 12ga., so this is a rare find. The gun is fully restored with awesome Doug Turnbull case colors, 99%+ restored wood and blue finishes, it shows almost as a new Parker gun with every finish historically correct to Parker factory specs. BEWARE OF THE MANY PARKERS THAT HAVE BEEN UPGRADED to “skeet configured” guns after leaving the factory with aftermarket beavertail forends and represented as an original SKEET GUN. They are far more numerous than the original. Parker Skeet guns are perfect for upland game over dogs, grouse and woodcock, quail and also are competitive on the skeet fields. With the long, graceful beavertail forend they are pleasing to the eye as well. These guns just keep getting more valuable, and the Parker Skeet gun will always be highly desirable and a great investment quality gun from an icon of American gun making. Thanks for looking!
