Parker VH 16 Gauge SxS Shotgun
SUPER CLEAN, CRISP, UNTOUCHED GUN!
General Specs: Parker, Year 1928, 16 Gauge, 6lb 7oz, Side by Side
Serial Number: 223478
There are LOTS of Parker VH 16ga. guns out there for sale, but this one stands above. Look at the wood to metal fit, the checkering, the screws...they are factory original and superb. All of the finishes, including the wood finish, are factory original and untouched. There is plenty of case color remaining at about 55%, with 95% factory original blue on the barrels. There is not one crack or split or repair anywhere in the wood, and the gun measures 14 1/4" to the factory dogs head butt plate. The 28" barrels have no dings or pits, a few light handling marks, mirror perfect bores, unaltered 2 9/16" chambers, double beads, and crisp clear lettering and rib matting. Parker guns are still in strong demand, but most available have been altered or restored in some way, or are just worn down to very little factory finish remaining. Now, I get to see a lot of fine Parker guns in my business, and high grade guns to boot, but this fine little Parker stands out because of its CLEAN, HONEST, UNMOLESTED condition. Another nicety is that it is a full 1/4lb. lighter than most 16ga. Parkers built on the #1 frame, weighing just 6lbs. 7oz. and balanced perfectly dead on the hinge pin. 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 when you find them like this one. We can easily bend the stock to suit your needs for a little extra charge within 10 days of your purchase. We have a full time gunsmith here for any alterations you may need in the way of chambers or chokes. Thanks for looking!
