Description: General Specs: Parker, Year 1923, 20 Gauge, 6lbs 3oz, Chokes F/F, LOP 14 1/4", DAH 2 3/4", DAC 1 5/8"

Serial Number: 201639

In the world of vintage American side x sides, Parker Brothers reigns supreme. The Parker name is synonymous with classic upland double guns. The Parker Gun Collectors Association has done a great job fostering knowledge on these fine guns, which many believe to be America’s finest. The GH Grade is the first level of Parker with game scene engraving with only 990 made in 20ga. with Parker Special Steel barrels, and only about 650 made with ejectors. There are likely less than 600 GHE 20ga. Parkers left on the planet. This fine Parker, sn201639 made in 1923, is a very nice example with some exceptional features that most double gunners love to see, ie lightweight at 6lbs. 3oz, 28” Parker Special Steel barrels with nice bores and 100% rust blue, factory bore diameter, plenty of wall thickness (see specs below paragraph) beautiful clear, sharp engraving showing on a naturally worn receiver, figured wood with excellent modern dimensions, and a vintage Hawkins pad. The lettering and engraving are still strong, and the screws are all in superb condition and clocked properly along the axis of the gun. Barrels have tight ribs and fit tight as new on the breech face with the top lever well right of center. The triggers are crisp and break clean at about 4.5lbs. of pull. There are few 20ga. Parkers with 28” Parker Special Steel barrels that weigh less than 6 1/2lbs. For the upland hunter, a gun at 6lbs. 3oz. is preferred by most. This is a VFI CERTIFIED GUN and we have a 90-day mechanical warranty on all such guns we sell. We stripped the action and forend iron to the smallest part, cleaned the parts in the Ultrasonic cleaner, inspected all for function and integrity, lubricated and reassembled the gun (a $325 service that should be performed each 10 years). We did not case color the receiver as some people like them natural as it shows the engraving better. We can have Turnbull case colors on the gun within 6 weeks for an added cost and the gun would look like new. I like her just the way she is, as the engraving is very attractive with the naturally worn receiver. This Parker balances on the hinge pin and feels amazing in hand. What a gorgeous investment quality Parker for your upcoming fall hunts and just in time for you to enjoy at your favorite gun club for some clay targets to warm you up for the season. Priced to sell, so don’t hesitate or she will be gone. Thanks for looking!
