Beretta BL 3 O/U 20 Gauge Shotgun, 28″ barrels

If this OU is as good as it looks, it’s a steal. It’s on Gunbroker.com with a “Buy Now” price of just $895.

Beretta BL-3s are the precursor to the company’s 686 line of over unders. Personally, I think they’re nicer shotguns. This one has a bit of decent engraving on it and it looks unused. Best of all, it has 28″ barrels — something that’s hard to find on these.

Beretta BL 3 O/U 20 Gauge Shotgun: Very nice BL 3 with 28″barrel choked modified and full. Appears to have been fired very little, with beautiful wood. Beretta hand engraving throughout. Superior handling and balance. Overall this Italian made Beretta is about 95%. Excellent for smaller framed shooters. Comes with owner’s manual. Price: $895

Parker VH Grade 20 Gauge Double Shotgun, 26 Inch Barrels, Very Rare with Original Box

Parker VH Grade 20 Gauge Double Shotgun, 26 Inch Barrels, Very Rare with Original Box

Say you  a new shotgun. Would you use it, or stash it away — forever?

For some reason, whoever bought this 20g Parker VH back in 1921 for around $60 decided “stash it away — forever” was the way to go. And this week, 96 years later, it came out of hiding and sold for $14,750.

Quality V.H. shotguns were built to be “…strictly high-grade gun at a very low price–the best-made gun of its grade ever produced”. Hunters bought 78,670 of them and made the VH Parker’s most popular model.

Today, VHs are the most common Parkers out there. But how many of them all original, brand new, in their original box, with their original tags, like this one? Very, very few. That’s why some collector paid so much money for it.

Parker VH Grade 20 Gauge Double Shotgun, 26 Inch Barrels, Very Rare with Original Box and Hang TagsIt is not often that we have the opportunity to sell a firearm as special as this Parker.  In all the years we have been in the firearms business, neither we or any of the other dealers we have talked with have ever had an original box and hang-tags with a Parker Shotgun.  The 1921 vintage shotgun is a Vulcan Grade 20 Gauge with 26 inch barrels that is built on the lightweight O frame.  It is in the best condition we have seen in years with nearly 100% original blue and 95%+ original case colors, with the only wear apparent on the gun is a small loss of case colors and small dark staining spots on the sides of the breeches of the receiver, probably from “box wear”.  The bores are mint and the wood is nearly flawless, with only a couple of very small handling marks in the finish.  This is probably the nicest 20 Gauge Parker most people would ever see, and it is made extra special by having its original box and hang tags.  This is undoubtedly a “once in a lifetime” chance to own a very unique Parker Side-by-Side. PRICE: $14,750 — SOLD

Merkel 200 e Over / Under 12 Ga Shotgun. A pheasant slayer!

Merkel 200 e Over / Under 12 Ga Shotgun. A pheasant slayer!

Here’s an over under most hunters overlook these days. It’s a Merkel 200e made right after WW2 and it’s on Gunbroker.com now, ending 12/3/2017 @ 7:52 PM.

Merkel is one of the world’s most famous gunmakers, and at the end of the 19th century they created the first commercially successful breechloading, over-under shotguns.

Back when this one was made, the 200e was Merkel’s basic model. But that doesn’t mean it was low quality. Every one of these Merkels I’ve seen has been solid and well made, on par, or better, than a Browning Superposed or early Beretta ASE.

All this one needs is a little choke work to be the perfect pheasant-hunting machine.

Merkel Over / Under 12 Ga Shotgun F & F VERY NICE: This auction features the pictured Very Nice Merkel 12 Gauge Over/Under Shotgun. It has 28 inch full and full barrels. The length of pull is 13 and 1/2 inches.

Parker Quality G 12GA–LIFTER, FACTORY 98% FINISHES ONE OF THE BEST REMAINING, NICE

Parker Quality G 12GA–LIFTER, FACTORY 98% FINISHES ONE OF THE BEST REMAINING, NICE

Parker Quality G 12GA–LIFTER, FACTORY 98% FINISHES ONE OF THE BEST REMAINING, NICEYear 1882, 12 Gauge, 7lbs 15oz, SxS, #22993. When some Parker collectors hear of a Grade 2 lifter gun in 12ga. they yawn casually, as most you will ever see are “grey guns”, with most of their finish gone, cut stocks, butt pads, repaired cracks, pitted bores, loose on face…the list goes on as the guns are over 100 years old and saw a LOT OF USE.  Those same guys will perk right up when you mention one with HIGH, FACTORY ORIGINAL CONDITION.  They only made about 2500 of these guns total, and this gun, sn22993, is likely one of the finest Quality G, Grade 2 damascus Parkers left on the planet.  Made in 1882 and still matching the factory letter to the “T”, the gun is in untouched, factory original condition with 98% vivid case color, 95% Damascus pattern remaining, near perfect factory checkering, perfect screws, and most all its original factory wood finish intact.   Some would call it a “museum quality” piece, but most I know would take it to vintage shoots, show it off, and break some clays with it, then take it afield as one of their favorite upland guns to shoot a few birds with each season.  Parkers in this condition and low production numbers are continuing to grow in value and the best examples bring extraordinary prices and high demand.  This is one of the best you will ever see, so don’t hesitate if you want it in your collection!  Thanks for looking. Price: $14,750

Parker GH 16 Gauge – 1904, FACTORY 99%, “O” FRAME DAMASCUS, FINEST COLLECTOR CONDITION

Parker GH 16 Gauge – 1904, FACTORY 99%, “O” FRAME DAMASCUS, FINEST COLLECTOR CONDITION

Parker GH 16 Gauge – 1904, FACTORY 99%, “O” FRAME DAMASCUS, FINEST COLLECTOR CONDITIONWhen chasing Parker guns one might see a few Parker GH 16ga. guns for sale, after all they made almost 3000 of them, 2316 with Damascus barrels and about 650 with Parker Special Steel barrels, so they are not RARE.  HOWEVER, THIS GUN IS AN EXTREMELY RARE, WHOLLY FACTORY ORIGINAL, UNTOUCHED, COLLECTOR QUALITY GH 16GA..  Why would I claim extreme rarity?  For one, it is on an “O” frame, or 20ga. frame and we all know there were few graded Parker 16’s built on an “O” frame, less than 10% of total production for sure.  So that means among Damascus guns they made about 200 of them.  We all see them from time to time; the grey, well worn, field used Parker GH grade guns…cut stocks, cracks, pins, worn to the nubs.  That is what is usually for sale.  Two hundred “O” frame 16ga. Damascus GH Grade guns made, and this is likely THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE, with 99% strong factory condition in every part of the gun.  Factory case color at 99%, factory Damascus pattern 99%, factory wood finish 99%, factory trigger guard blue 95%, mirror bores, factory bore diameter, chambers, and chokes, factory 99% checkering…even the dog’s head butt plate is 99% excellent!  I do see a lot of fine Parkers, but in my lifetime I have seen few as clean and definitively factory original as this little gun.  The 28” Damascus barrels are just stunning, the wood is English walnut as it should be with a gun built in 1904.  I am able to state that this Parker GH 16, sn128304, is the finest I have ever seen.  And at 6lbs. 2oz. it is a delicate wand in hand, ready for a most pleasant walk in the upland habitat or to crush some vintage sporting clays targets.  When you call something an “investment quality firearm”, this would be your perfect example; low production, desirable features, and extremely high, untouched factory original condition.  These are the gun you have to step up to the plate and pay the premium price for, as you will not have an opportunity to own such a gun again.  The value of a gun like this one will continue to rise as more and more of the remaining guns are used, abused, and restored.  Don’t let this one get away.  If you ever wanted an example of a fine Damascus Parker, this is the one for your collection.  Gotta love the way the “O” frame 16ga. Parkers feel when you pick one up, and this gun even has great shooting dimensions.  Thanks for looking! Price: $9,450

Browning Bss Sidelock 12 Gauge Shotgun Like New 12 GA

Browning Bss Sidelock 12 Gauge Shotgun Like New 12 GA

I say “Browning”, you say “over & under”. But just because this company has made some of the most famous OUs of all time doesn’t mean they haven’t made some other great doubles.

From 1971 to 1987, Browning also “made” side-by-sides, including the sidelock shotgun you see here. I say “made” because these guns were actually built in Japan by Miroku and imported into the US under the Browning name. Regardless, they’re great guns and real bargains today. This one looks brand new. And on top of that, it has 28″ barrels, which makes it extra special.

It’s on Gunauction.com now at No Reserve. The listing ends tomorrow, November 27, 2017 @ 1:00pm.

ITHACA SKB 280 20GA SIDE-BY-SIDE EXCELLENT

ITHACA SKB 280 20GA SIDE-BY-SIDE EXCELLENT

I’m a fanatic for old shotguns. That being said, I do realize modern SxSs and OUs have benefits: Perfected designs, suitability with modern ammo, easier to fix, etc.

Of the modern stuff out there, I’ve always liked Ithaca/SKB side by sides. SKB is another of Japan’s famous gunmakers and Ithaca imported SxSs and OUs made by them from 1966-1977 or so. Well made and rugged, these guns are great deals when you find them today.

The one you see here is a 280. Introduced in ’71 as an English Field model, it was Ithaca/SKB’s “…excitingly new deluxe field gun…in the classic English style.” It’s built on a Anson& Deeley style boxlock action and features ejectors, chrome-lined barrels and hand checkering.

Priced at $249.95 when it first hit the market, it cost far less than Browning’s Superposeds, which started at $465.

RE: It’s the Ithaca/SKB/s 25″ barrels? Don’t fear ’em. For upland shooting, most your shots are quick pokes rather. So the short tubes won’t make a difference.

ITHACA SKB 280 20GA SIDE-BY-SIDE EXCELLENTA very lightly used 20ga Ithaca/SKB. Very few hunting marks keep this gun from being 100%. It’s getting harder to find these guns in this kind of shape. Good to go, no issues, close to new.  Price: $1850

B.C. Miroku Skeet O/U 20 ga double barrel shotgun

B.C. Miroku Skeet O/U 20 ga double barrel shotgun

Japan doesn’t come to mind when most people think gunmaking. But craftsmen there have been building firearms for hundreds of years.

Karaji Miroku was one of them, and in 1893 he started a gunsmithing business that  went on to become the Miroku Corporation, one of Japans biggest and best know gunmakers.

Today, Miroku builds a firearms for Browning and under their own name. In 2011, Field & Stream writer Phil Bourjaily toured their facility.

B.C. Miroku Skeet O/U 20 ga double barrel shotgun

Back in the ’50s and ’60s, Miroku built shotgun like the one you see here. This is their version of a Browning Superposed, and it’s 95% the same gun. One of the biggest ways it differs is price. While vintage 20g Browning Superposed costs $1800+,  with this OU you can get the same quality for less money.

Fox HE Super Fox 12 Gauge – 32”, 1 OF 950 MADE HIGH FACTORY CONDITION: Year 1927, 12Gauge, 9lbs 2oz, Side-by-Side, Serial Number: 31791.

12Gauge, 9lbs 2oz, Side-by-Side, Serial Number: 31791. Those interested in long range shooting likely know of the Fox HE Grade or “SUPER FOX”, the most capable long-range gun made in America, or maybe in the world!  There is a strong interest in these guns, made so by famous outdoor writer Nash Buckingham in the late 1920’s and in all of the stories written since.  There were only about 950 of these guns manufactured, and most have been altered in ways that destroy their function and value, so an unmolested Super Fox is a rare find.  The Super Fox performance is entirely dependent on the combination of the over-bored barrels, precise chambers, and special, long tapered chokes, all finely tuned by the famous barrel guru Bert Becker.  This Super Fox, sn31791 shipped in 1927, has 32” barrels with factory 3” chambers, showing the correct .738 bore diameter and 4 ½” chokes tapering to a 49 (R) and 48 (L) thousandths constriction.  Like most waterfowling guns, this Super Fox was used, but also well maintained, as it retains over 92% bold factory case color, 92% factory blue, 97% factory trigger guard blue, near perfect screws, excellent bores, no dents or dings, barrels tight on the hinge pin and breech face like a new gun, ejectors are super strong and well timed, mechanics are excellent, no cracks or repairs to the factory length wood that still retains the original finish and superb checkering, and there are the customary handling marks on the barrels and wood.  Most HE Super Fox guns have plain jane American walnut chosen for its strength.  This gun has nicely figured English walnut with nice, strong straight grain through the wrist, making it a much more handsome Super Fox than you usually see.  THIS IS AN AMAZING FIND AS THESE GUNS ARE ALMOST ALWAYS ALTERED, USED HARD, AND LACK THE SUPERB ORIGINAL CONDITION YOU SEE IN THIS GUN. The Super Fox is in such hot demand and the prices have risen so sharply as a result, this gun will go fast as it is one of the finest conditioned factory original Super Fox guns seen for sale in a very long time.  Don’t hesitate or it will be gone!  Thanks for looking at our fine guns. Price: $9,750.00
