I have a 1921 VH 16 Gauge for sale that has been restored. This VH is on a #1 frame and has had a Miller Single Trigger installed. The gun has 26" barrels that are choked .007 in both barrels. The gun originally came from the factory as 28" so this was cut at some point. The LOP is 14 1/4" over a silvers pad. The stock has not been cut so a replacement original plastic butt plate for a shorter LOP could be used. Forcing cones have been lengthened to 2 3/4". DAC is 1 1/2" and DAH is 2 3/4". The gun weights 6lbs 12oz. The history I was given on this gun was that the gun had been restored in the 70's by Larry Delgrego and that the wood had been restored by who I purchased it from by Mike May at Classic Gunstocks and the Single Trigger installed. The only flaw I can find on the gun is a scratch in the blueing on the barrel that starts up by the frame and runs for about 6” on the right barrel. I'm asking $3000.

Please PM for pictures

2&9/16" chambers? Fotos of muzzle areas? Copy of Del Grego letterhead verifying exactly what work he may have done on this VH? Selective Miller single trigger? RWTF

The chambers have been opened up to 2 3/4”. The single trigger is non selective and I have not been able to get a response from Delgrego on confirming work he may have done on this gun. That is just what I was told when I purchased the gun, I can not confirm that. If you want additional pics pm me an email and I can send you some.

Thanks for your honest answers. The Del Grego situation recalls a visit I took with a friend to Cabela's?Bass_Ackwards Gun Library last Fall- pre- Corona era, to examine a DHE 12 (28" Titanic DT) No. 2 frame they had for sale at about 4K- the note on the tag stated that it had been refinished by DelGrego- looked about 95% to me- So I asked the same question to the clerk- he went back to the manager's office, and came back and said: "We don't have any paperwork on this gun." "How do you then know it is Del Grego's work?" "Well, the man we bought it from told us that".. Hummmm RWTF

When I called Delgrego years ago to inquire about a refinished Parker that I had just acquired, allegedly their work, they told me there was no way to tell whether it was theirs unless they had it in hand. Didn’t make much difference to me because the gun was well done and I had already bought it.
