When chasing Parker guns one might see a few Parker GH 16ga. guns for sale, after all they made almost 3000 of them, 2316 with Damascus barrels and about 650 with Parker Special Steel barrels, so they are not RARE. HOWEVER, THIS GUN IS AN EXTREMELY RARE, WHOLLY FACTORY ORIGINAL, UNTOUCHED, COLLECTOR QUALITY GH 16GA.. Why would I claim extreme rarity? For one, it is on an “O” frame, or 20ga. frame and we all know there were few graded Parker 16’s built on an “O” frame, less than 10% of total production for sure. So that means among Damascus guns they made about 200 of them. We all see them from time to time; the grey, well worn, field used Parker GH grade guns…cut stocks, cracks, pins, worn to the nubs. That is what is usually for sale. Two hundred “O” frame 16ga. Damascus GH Grade guns made, and this is likely THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE, with 99% strong factory condition in every part of the gun. Factory case color at 99%, factory Damascus pattern 99%, factory wood finish 99%, factory trigger guard blue 95%, mirror bores, factory bore diameter, chambers, and chokes, factory 99% checkering…even the dog’s head butt plate is 99% excellent! I do see a lot of fine Parkers, but in my lifetime I have seen few as clean and definitively factory original as this little gun. The 28” Damascus barrels are just stunning, the wood is English walnut as it should be with a gun built in 1904. I am able to state that this Parker GH 16, sn128304, is the finest I have ever seen. And at 6lbs. 2oz. it is a delicate wand in hand, ready for a most pleasant walk in the upland habitat or to crush some vintage sporting clays targets. When you call something an “investment quality firearm”, this would be your perfect example; low production, desirable features, and extremely high, untouched factory original condition. These are the gun you have to step up to the plate and pay the premium price for, as you will not have an opportunity to own such a gun again. The value of a gun like this one will continue to rise as more and more of the remaining guns are used, abused, and restored. Don’t let this one get away. If you ever wanted an example of a fine Damascus Parker, this is the one for your collection. Gotta love the way the “O” frame 16ga. Parkers feel when you pick one up, and this gun even has great shooting dimensions. Thanks for looking!
