Parker DH 16 Gauge SxS – “O” FRAME, 95% FACTORY COLOR GORGEOUS

I’ve had an on-and-off love affair with Parkers. Over the last 20 years or so I’ve owned–and sold off–a bunch of them. But over that time, I’ve never seen one like this.

This 16 gauge, DH-grade’s combination of damascus-steel barrels, 0-size frame, modern stock dimensions and incredible wood make it very unusual.

Some guns are just special, and a Parker 16ga. on an “O” frame (20ga. frame) is just such a gun.  More than a 1/2 pound lighter than a typical Parker 16ga, the “0” frame 16 is highly sought after by today’s upland hunter.  They are not common, and to find one on the nicely decorated DH Grade format is a treat.  This Parker DH, sn140136 made in 1906, is stunning with 99% factory damascus pattern, 95% factory case colors, perfect bores…no flaws anywhere.  The serialization book shows it is configured just as it left the factory.  They only made 458 damascus DH 16ga. guns.  There can only be a handful on the highly desirable “O” frame.  At 6lbs. 2oz. it is a delightful gun that will not wear you out by the end of the day.  The wood on this Parker is incredible, with full flame and feather-crotch figure finished in a hand-rubbed oil finish, a 14 ¾” LOP to the factory skeleton butt plate, and modern
