Serial Number: 190267
Parkers remain the "king of the hill" when it comes to American made vintage double shotguns. When you examine closely the fit and finish on the Parker guns, it is impeccable. Parker was amongst the best at balancing their guns as well, with guns that tip the scales on the heavy side for gauge feeling much lighter in hand. Graded guns like this little DHE 20 ga., sn190267 made in 1921, are especially desirable and have been great investments that are a joy to shoot. At 6 1/4lbs. and balanced 1/8" ahead of the hinge pin with its 28" Titanic Steel barrels, you could not ask for a better handling little 20ga., with enough weight for a steady swing yet easy to carry all day over hill and dale. The gun has undergone a very professional full restoration and retains 100% metal and wood finishes. All parts seem to be original to the gun, including the buttstock with its Dogs Head Butt Plate that is installed to perfection. Most are aware that the DH Grade guns came standard with a skeleton steel butt plate. I have owned several that lettered with the Dogs Head plate, but this gun has no letter available so we will never know. I did remove the trigger guard and the stock is properly stamped under the trigger guard with Parker factory stamps. This gun is really an attractive Parker, with deeply rust blued barrels, sharp and clear lettering, checkering done to perfection, and nice deep case colors over clear sharp engraving that is more detailed than most Parker DHE guns. With mirror bores, healthy barrels choked IC/M, great stock dimensions, excellent screws, no cracks or repairs anywhere, this gun is ready for decades of use with no trouble. Look the photos over closely and you will see an exceptional Parker at an affordable price.
