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, 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 and high stock dimensions would have been called a "SKEET GUN". Skeet guns could be ordered with any style stock available, the most desirable had checkered butts and straight hand stocks. This Parker DHE Skeet gun, sn230599 shipped in 1930, has all of the above-mentioned extras including the checkered butt and is a genuine skeet gun. The gun is in excellent mechanical condition and was restored by Turnbull in 1982. They only made 39 DHE Skeet guns in 12ga., and likely less than 5 DHE SKEET GUNS MADE WITH A VENTILATED RIB. If you have the Parker Story 2 volume set, look at page 411 for the chart with the details showing the rarity of these guns. BEWARE OF THE MANY PARKERS THAT HAVE BEEN UPGRADED to “skeet configured” guns after leaving the factory 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 are also 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!
