PARKER BROS. 12 GA. VHE – NUMBER 1 FRAME

PARKER BROS. 12 GA. VHE – NUMBER 1 FRAME

Here’s a Parker you rarely see. It’s a 12g that weighs 6lbs 10z – or about as much as a typical British 12 gauge game gun.

Most 12g Parkers were built on 1 1/2- 0r 2-sized frames. That pushed their weights into the 7 1/4 pound plus category (mostly plus). Even though Parker 12s could be built on the smaller 1-frames, few shooters ordered lightweight them. Instead, most people who wanted a sub-seven pound Parker dropped down to a 16 or 20 gauge.

PARKER BROS. 12 GA. VHE – NUMBER 1 FRAME: 28” BARRELS IM/FULL, DT, PG, 14  1/8” X 1  ½” X 2  ¾”, CASE COLORS 50%, WT. 6 LBS. 10 OZS., VERY CLEAN ORIGINAL GUN.  Price: $4,250.

  1. Not very British IMHO. Pistolgrip stock? British proofs? See http://www.mylandco.com Select “Other Sale Items” #1 on list

    Huh – I’m not sure what you’re talking about, George. And if you’re referring to that Parker on your site, it’s overpriced.

    Thanks for the comment, though.
