Lol, we can miss with all of them, that's for sure. It's more of a balance and mind block thing for me. I am seeing prices $500-1000 cheaper for same gun with 27" barrels, that's nothing to sneeze at.

I don't currently own a side-by-side with barrels shorter than 28"- but if I could have purchased my Savage-Fox 20 gauge Sterly (1932 mfg.) with 27" original (uncut)for $450 less than I paid for it 12 years ago, I sure as heck would have--if memory serves, in the 1930's when Skeet was becoming popular, The Hunter Arms folks offered their Skeet Special in 26", 27" and 28"- and also with the option of a single non selective as well as selective trigger-I believe ejectors were std-maybe. So, if the gun has good dimensions for you and your style of mounting and shooting, what's 1" of barrel length/sighting plane either way.?? RWTF

The difference between 26" to 27" barrels and 27" to 28" is about trivial. However, 26" to 28" is just noticeable. You have to get into the 30's" before one inch makes a difference. That is, 31" to 32" is generally noticeable. The barrel length is part of a squared factor, so as length gets longer the factor grows much faster.

In the psychological realm, confidence/belief that the given gun or some of its attributes are unexplainably important trump facts. You could very well have a deep seated first learning that 28" barrels are to be much preferred.

I'd suggest that you save the money ONLY if you become convinced
that you can ultimately overcome a bias against 27" barrels.

If you are interested, post back and I will post some 27" vs 28" data.

European guns with 27” barrels are usually 70cm.

I have a D-grade ($140 quality) sixteen gauge Lifter Parker on the lightened 0-frame with original Parker-made Laminated Steel barrels. It is not listed in the Grades section of The Parker Story but I have the PGCA factory research letter attesting to every feature of the gun, including the 27-inch barrels.
It is light, swings very nicely and has killed a few birds for me.
Value? IMO it is more valuable than any of Parker's 28-inch guns, all other features being equal.
