F/S: Parker Bros. 16 gauge ‘DHE’ on their No. 1 frame with 32” barrels choked F/F. Nicely figured factory stocks @ 1-1/2”DAC x 2-5/8”DAH x 14-1/4”LOP, with ‘0’ cast to a Silvers reproduction pad. Gun has double triggers, splinter forehand, and capped pistol grip for a total weight of 7 lb. 6 oz. The gun left the Meriden factory in October of 1929, and remains unaltered from the specs given in a PGCA research letter dated 2004.

The 32 inch (16 ga.) barrels have constrictions of .030” & .034” right to left, with a finished weight of 3 lb. 4 oz. The gun was sold to me in late 2007 with a second set of 32” ‘Vulcan’ 20 gauge barrels that had been fitted and numbered to the gun in its past. These, too, were choked F/F (.025” in each barrel) and appear original in every way. The 20 gauge set weighs 3 lb. 2 oz. for a total gun weight of 7 lb. 4 oz. You’ll see from the previous seller's photos taken just prior to my purchase in 2007 that the 20 gauge barrels were in need of (rust) re-blacking which was professionally done back in 2008 along with the 16 ga. set to assure a correct color match and finish. I also installed twin ivories on the 20 gauge set at that time to match those of the sixteen, and both sets remain @ 99+%. Nonetheless, I recognize some will consider it more of a ‘shooter’ than a collectible due to the partial restoration. Gun is mechanically sound/tight throughout with top lever right of center, and screw slots remain very good to excellent throughout.

The original case colors remain at 20%, with wood being a restored 99+% oil finish and a wood-to-metal fit that is still excellent. No actual provenance came with the gun other than reputedly having been originally ordered by a California duck club member back when these long-barreled, sub-gauge side-by-sides were in vogue (see The Parker Story, re: Widgeon Duck Gun Club Parkers, pg. 677). I wish I could confirm that for you, but I can’t…..

'The Parker Story' does reveal, however, that of the some 180,000 + hammerless guns produced, only 93 were made up as 16 gauges w/ 32” barrels in the ‘D’ grade; and that only another 28 guns of 16 ga./32” were made when figuring in all other grades.

Includes a lovely vintage, 32” two-barrel LOM case in excellent condition throughout along with the PGCA letter. Price of $9,400.00, shipped to any state in the lower 48 other than California……with a $200 reduction in price for direct pick-up here in Montana. Dave Weber to receive $50. upon sale. Serious inquiries are encouraged via a PM to me here for photos and with any further questions you might have regarding such things as MWTs’, trigger pull weights, amount of usage while in my care, etc., etc.

'Thank You' for your interest.............

No offense meant, Replacement, but from my perspective 'why' would I want a gun of that vintage to reside in a state that is likely to further ban the use of lead shot .....to include clay target shooting? If that line of thinking costs me a sale, I'm OK with it.....

Still a foolish and illogical decision to not ship to CA. Why penalize the hunters and shooters in this state just because the government is run by idiots? Why worry about the CA lead ban when everybody I hunt with now hunts out of state for most upland game? Why feed the beast that is the uninformed majority of voters and legislators? Do you not realize that you are playing right into their grubby little hands? Do you not realize that if they are successful here, it won't be that long before other states start doing the same stupid things? Have you considered that CA represents around 10% of the population of the entire country? What about the fact this gun was originally ordered by a CA duck club member?

I am not a buyer for your gun because I already have way too many Parkers, but I and many others get really pissed off about this "no sale to CA" bullshit. It's hard enough dealing with local stupidity without having to deal with counterproductive behavior from other states.

I assume the PGCA letter gives no information about the original owner or purchaser, but a scan of the letter would be helpful in a sale. One reason to include California in your buyer group would be the fact that California buyers may be the only group that would pay $9400 for this gun, not that $9400 is unreasonable, eh?

Not selling to Californians, only handcuffs them in their ability to deal with gun regulation.

I'm guessing you never took a logic class in college. That's a complete load of crap with absolutely no basis in fact.


I'm guess that you don't shoot routinely with people from California.

It has everything to do with fact. Keeping guns from coming into CA is a big part of the Anti's agenda.

I deleted my post because right after I posted it, I realized that I was not responding to the OP. The punctuation in your post caused me to misinterpret what you were trying to communicate.

I do shoot routinely with people from CA, because I live in CA. But we do the majority of our hunting out of state, except for ducks. You are correct that the state gooberment does not want guns coming into CA, and that's why the sellers' (plural, not just the OP) refusal to sell or ship to CA is so misguided.

That is nice and rare collectible Parker, but personally, I wouldn't care where it went off to after I got my $9400 for it.

This from the top of the page, by the guy who owns this site, and makes the rules.

"Note: If you are not interested in buying the advertised firearm and have never owned it. Don't post extraneous garbage under the listing...keep your thoughts off the board."

Robert has every right to sell his gun as he sees fit, by his rules, and where he pleases. And, just so everyone knows that I am not violating the rules by posting this ........... I am interested in the gun.

Stan- I hope you are able to get this "one of a kind" Pakkah- I surmise you like tightly choked doubleguns with 32" barrels, dove and ducks (with non-toxic loads)--

I have "No dog in this brewing issue fight re: CA" but I also agree that Robert has every right to restrict the potential delivery and sale of his Parker--The potential hassle of shipping and selling a collector grade gun like this to a State clearly opposed to gun ownership and the Second Amendment.

Golly, Francis

If you trust me enough to 'PM' me your e-mail address, I'll send you a bunch of them AND you don't even have to buy the damn thing. I'm happy to share photos but don't know enough to post them properly or how many are acceptable to post due to bandwidth size.

I'm 70 years old and still remember an old monthly publication called 'Shotgun News' that mostly contained short/little two and three sentence ads with just a phone number and we all seemed to have no problems finding the guns of our choosing back then......my, how times have changed.

Stan, I agree that it is a nice gun, and I'm glad you are interested in it. I am not, but there are more than 40 million people in CA, and some of them may be interested, so my comments are not extraneous. Just helping Robert to market his gun.

Foxie, there is NO "potential hassle" in selling or shipping this or any similar gun to CA. It's exactly like shipping to any other state: get a copy of the FFL, get money from the seller, private party ship the gun to the FFL. Boom. Done. Seller has the money and buyer gets to do a 4473. Simple, eh?

They are extraneous, by Dave's guidelines. You are not interested in buying the gun, and you have not said that you ever owned it. So, your comments are extraneous. Not my rules, but Dave's (which I happen to agree with).

Thanks for the clarification-- I will freely admit I do not understand the CA culture- even though I was a "Hollywood Marine" back in the 1960's-- the only part of CA outside of MCRD and then ITR at Pendleton was a week-end liberty after we graduated from 19 weeks of "Boot Camp"- we visited the San Diego Zoo-So, for whatever reasons, perhaps none of them valid, I think all the wacko Governors, Hollywood and its all-pervasive grasp on our Country's decay in values (the recent Hollywood celebrities indicted in the private college test cheating/bribery scandals--)

And some ridiculous rules and regs on ammo and steel shot, and concealed carry rights for citizens to defend themselves, especially in sewers like parts of LA-- As I have no guns to sell, nor have any "contacts" in CA, I'll bide my further thoughts on this situation. RWTF

Nobody is trying to discriminate against Californians. The problem is that the gun laws in the Land of Fruits and Nuts are so extensive and change so frequently that we are never confident that we are not committing a felony by shipping a gun into that deep blue disaster. The last time I checked, an FFL from another state had to register with some state agency prior to shipping a shotgun to a California FFL. Its just not worth the hassle and risk for most of us, that's all.

Two part response.

First, there is absolutely NO restriction on a private party shipping this gun to an FFL in CA. NONE! Confusion is rampant, and that seems to be part of the strategy of our screwed up government. As an example, CA DOJ didn't release the actual regs for ammo sales and background checks until a couple weeks before the new law went into effect, leaving a lot of ammo dealers and potential customers in the lurch. It's not just strategy, it's also general regulatory incompetence.

Second, and perhaps more importantly, the stupid CA gun transfer laws were not part of OP's stated reasons for refusing to ship the gun to CA. He absolutely DOES want to discriminate against Californians, which makes him part of the problem rather than part of the solution. His gun, his call.

No risk, no hassle, simple to follow the law. It does not cost a penny more and only takes a few moments. I am happy to sell to anyone who is legally allowed to own a firearm anywhere in the United States. International sales are fine to as long as the buyer handles the exporter details. I really do not understand limiting your market but it is not my sale. How others handle sales is not my business.

I'll "second" Ted's response--I've enjoyed our direct e-mail chats, and I hope the potential buyer enjoys this very rare Parker shotgun as much as you have- we are all just "caretakers" of the older double guns, a tradition from days gone by. RWTF

I've noticed that, too. To whom may we give credit for the censoring ........... Dave?

Humorous to me how he cannot help but change everybody's name that he doesn't like. It's either twisting their real name or assigning some childish nickname. There was a "slow" kid in grade school who did exactly the same thing ....... 'long about 6th grade. Nobody thought he was funny either.

I'll take that action. Too easy to assume (makes an ass out of you and me, does it not?) That Stan is a shortened version of Stanley--If you were "ass-toot" enough to read Stan's well phrased response, the proper usage of the "whom" rather than the more commonly used "who" in that phraseology, you could deduce that Stan was most likely at the top of his class.

You need to pay more attention to the little details of life, Joseph, or may I take the liberty of saying- Joe?? RWTF

Stan’s first name is Stanton. jOe has been made aware of that, previously, but, he fails to grasp it.

From what we have seen demonstrated, here, there is much he fails to grasp.


Best,
Ted

I'll have a slice, as long as it's laced with Brandy. One of the better treats of the Christmas season, and it lasts forever. Maybe a fore-runner to the MRE's of today. RWTF

I would like to offer my sincere thanks to Mr. Harris for his extraordinary attention to detail in describing the gun, answering my questions thoroughly and with documentation, shipping in the most indestructible and secure container I have ever seen used for a gun, and bending over backwards to want me to be pleased with my purchase. It has been a perfectly enjoyable transaction, and I would recommend Mr. Harris to anyone as a fine person and seller. Most internet sellers could learn a lot from him, and his ethics.

The gun is without a doubt the gem of my meager collection of hunting guns. The pictures do not do it justice. It will be used for clays, some selected duck hunts, but most of all it will be an all-season, southern dove gun, now. It seems to fit me to a "T", but a few shots at the plate will verify that soon. I expect those chokes to be "far reaching".

Thank you again, Robert. SRH

....and 'Thanks' to the both of you: Stan, for your purchase and kind words. I suspect those late migrating, Georgia-bound doves are in for a time of it. And to you, Ted, for posting photos of this gun for me when I first listed it.

With appreciation,

Rob

Next, you need a DHE 32” .410! Wow. CSMC might be able to make you a set of .410 32” barrels for your gun?? That would be neat.

Whoooo! That would be high cotton. Actually, if cotton went to $1.25/lb................. nah, ain't holding my breath for that to happen.

What would be nice is someday having a set of 20 ga., 26" barrels fitted. Then, it could be a supremo dove/quail gun. Not really serious about that either tho', got a nice original 20 ga. Philly Fox Sterly ejector for Mr. Bob.

Best, SRH

Won’t hurt anything to check with CSMC. Might be more affordable than you think esp if you are ‘in’ with them which I’m not. Bob Cash is. Check with him. He might be able to help you swing a deal on .410 32” barrels???

I'll see Lou, from CSMC, next April, at the Bray's Island Exposition. I'll take the gun and we'll talk about it.

Thanks for the heads up. Had no idea they made barrels for Parkers, too.

The no. 1 frame on my gun would be way too big for a set of .410 barrels. Parker didn't make any .410s on anything larger than a 00 frame, two sizes smaller than the no. 1.

Two gauges is plenty enough for me on this one.

Best, SRH

As I figured, you'd be along to comment. Got one last thing to say to you on this thread. Stick with selling tUrkey calls and stay out of the used car business, 'cause yOu don't know a tire kicker when you see one.
