Superb Antique 12ga Parker DH in closet queen original condition! for sale

Superb Antique 12ga Parker DH in closet queen original condition: Rarely do we find early damascus guns in incredible condition. Most of the high condition Parkers are in the 175k SN range and newer. When you study a gun like this DH, you can see why Parker sold 240k guns. They made really beautiful firearms.

This particular gun is in the 82k SN range and made on a 1-1/2 frame. It has 28″ Damascus barrels with brilliant pattern, virtually all of which remains in pristine condition. The bores are brilliant and shiny. Made with splinter forend, double triggers, and extractors. The action is engraved in typical early DH pattern and retains more than 80% bold original case color. Stocks retain nearly all of their original finish. The quality of the wood on this gun cannot be overstated. The original skeleton buttplate retains more than 1/2 of the original blued finish as does the trigger guard.

Technical details: Right barrel- .731 with .025 Choke, Left Barrel .731 with .037 choke. Weight: 7lbs 5oz. 2-5/8″ chambers. LOP- 14″ to original skeleton BP. DAC 1-7/8″. DAH 3-1/8″

If you have ever wanted a truly high original condition early Damascus Parker, look no further. It would take a lifetime of searching to improve on the overall quality and condition of this fine early Parker. Price: $8395

Fox A Grade 20 Gauge – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK, NICE!, vintage firearms inc

Fox A Grade 20 Gauge – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK, NICE!, vintage firearms inc: General Specs: Fox, Year 1938, 20 Gauge, 5lb 14oz, Chokes M/F, LOP 14 1/4″, DAH 2 5/8″, DAC 1 9/16″. Serial Number: 203917. Many gun lovers reading this ad regularly scour the internet for good deals on Fox shotguns.  One thing for certain; the availability of graded 20ga. Fox shotguns has dwindled to nearly zero.  Shooter/collectors have recognized the Fox 16ga. and 20ga. guns are the most well balanced, lightest weight, best handling guns of all the vintage American doubles.  It is also known that they have the simplest, most reliable actions as well.  They only made about 2400 A Grade 20ga. Fox guns, with likely less than 2000 remaining in action due to loss and damage. This little Fox A Grade, sn203917 produced in 1938, is an awesome find.  First, it is a factory English style grip, which is very rare (less than 10% made with English grip, or 240 guns).  The handling characteristics and aesthetics of an English grip little Fox is as close as an American double gun will come to being comparable to the finest English makers.  This gun weighs just 5lbs. 14oz. and balances dead on the hinge pin…it seems to float to your shoulder and balances perfectly in hand.  Next, the wood on the gun has much more figure than you will normally find on and A Grade Fox, and we all love nice wood!  Then we have this beautiful condition and pleasing patina to this gun, with 65% bright vivid factory case color, perfect screws, superb wood to metal fit, modern dimensions with the original butt plate…all these things add up to a superior vintage Fox gun.  The factory order card shows the gun “as shipped”; even the chokes and chambers are unaltered since leaving the factory.  Due to damage, loss, poor restorations, etc. there are only a few genuine, honest, factory correct, high-condition straight stocked Fox A Grade 20ga. guns left in the world, and the guys that own them are not likely to be selling them soon.  This Fox has perfect mechanics, excellent bores, and is tight as new on breech face and hinge pin.  THIS IS A “VFI CERTIFIED” GUN, meaning we stripped the forend iron and receiver to the smallest parts, ran it through the Ultrasonic cleaner, inspected all parts for integrity and function, then lubricated and reassembled (a $275 service!). VFI CERTIFIED guns carry a 90-day mechanical warranty. It is hard enough to find a decent A Grade 20ga. nowadays, let alone with a well figured English stock. Don’t let this one escape you. It will be a long time until another Fox A Grade 20 this nice is offered for sale. It will continue to gain value as you enjoy its use, so it is a grand investment tool for your hard-earned funds. Thanks for looking! Price: $6,450

Great gun alert: Beretta BL-4M o/u old original box 3″ 20GA

As I’ve said many times before, Beretta’s BL grade OUs are great shotguns. Introduced in the ’60s, these doubles were imported into the US by the Garcia Corp through the 1970s.

The BLs feature a shallow, low profile action scaled to match the gauge. They were priced to be values – not cheap, but well-made guns at fair prices. They came in a number of grades, with the BL-5s being the highest. All of them were rugged, reliable doubles, built to deliver a lot of quality for a fair amount of money.

All about the new Beretta’s new SL3 OU shotgun …

New Beretta SL3 OU shotgun
New Beretta SL3 OU shotgun

Last April I traveled to Italy for the launch of the Beretta’s new SL3 Over Under shotgun. Here’s an article I wrote about the trip for Shooting Sportsman magazine. Pics are from Project Upland’s A.J. DeRosa.

The Italian Way

Give me a ‘friggin break, Italy. It was a Sunday, almost 7 pm. After an overnight flight into Milan and a couple of hours on trains, I was in Brescia, sitting at the edge of a square called Piazzale Arnaldo, jet-lagged, cranky, and hungry enough to eat a gunstock.

I had booked a hotel in the part of town known for dining and nightlife, so I had charged out of it an hour earlier expecting to find crowds of people and bustling restaurants everywhere. I had imagined laughter, palmed glasses of red wine, and plates of Risotto alla Milanese and Tortelli di Zucca. But instead of walking into a scene from La Dolce Vita, I walked into ghost town out of a spaghetti western.

Everywhere I went, the streets were deserted: Via Tosio, Via S. Faustino, Via Crispi. Windows were shuttered; shops were closed; restaurants were empty. Nothing was open. I was looking to EAT, and my outfit, a dark shirt topped with a darker jacket, was ready to mask some spilled sauce. But there was no risotto or tortelli to be found anywhere. I couldn’t even get pizza. In Italy. Defeated and fading, I considered my situation. Room service at my hotel? Vending machines in the lobby? Did my hotel have vending machines? Ugh.

As I wondered, bells in towers throughout the city started to ring-in 7 pm. Dong, dong, dong. By the time they finished, the Piazzale Arnaldo had come to life. Couples appeared from around the corner and strolled by hand in hand. The Osteria Vecchio restaurant flicked on its lights and a waiter lined up tables on the stone walkway front. An old man with a cane tapped past. Within an hour or so, everything I had hoped to find earlier had appeared: Chatting people, open restaurants, and, finally, dinner: Casoncelli alla Bresciana (raviolis stuffed with meat, showered with sage butter, guanciale, and parmesan cheese). My shirt did not stay clean.

So what had happened? Basically, Italians do things their own way. On Sundays, that means spending the afternoon with family. Instead of going out around 5 pm (like an American expected them to do), they waited until later. As I would find out, the Italians also do things their own way when it comes to building firearms, and this is what made Beretta’s newest over-under so worthy of attention.

Beretta's new SL3 OU, different engraving patterns
Beretta’s new SL3 OU, different engraving patterns

Confusingly, Brescia is both una citta and una provincia in northern Italy. The second contains the first, and both are nudged against the Italian Alps, closer to Geneva than to Rome. The Provincia di Brescia is the industrial capital of Europe. Along with being a top producer of everything from automobile wheels to pipe fittings, the provincia builds 40% of the sporting guns sold throughout the world. In 2016, the province of Brescia sent more than 395,000 sporting guns to the U.S. alone. Most were built in Gardone Val Trompia, a town 30 miles north of the città di Brescia.

Gardone Val Trompia is squeezed into a valley (il Val Trompia) between mountain and peaks with wonderfully euphonic names like Monte Rodondone, Punta Almana, and Corni di Sonclivo. Unfortunately, the views of them from town aren’t worth seeing. This and Gardone Val Trompia industrial-park vibe keeps the area off of most tourists’ lists. Chances are, anyone traveling there isn’t looking for scenery; they’re looking for guns. Dozens of gunmakers and gun-related business are stacked into Val Trompia, from Zoli and F.lli Rizzini to the famous Creative Art engraving studio. The king of all them all is Fabbrica d’Armi Pietro Beretta S.p.A. I was in Gardone Val Trompia to learn more Beretta’s new SL3, an over-under shotgun the company introduced to the U.S. at the 2018 Safari Club International Convention in Las Vegas. Compared to all the other OUs already on the market, I wanted to see if the SL3 was worth paying attention to at all.

“With the SL3, we took all our experience in ballistics, all our experience in manufacturing premium guns, and all our experience in designing beautiful guns, and we put all of this together.” That’s Roberto Zarrillo, Marketing Manager at Beretta. If you know much about his employer, you realize Mr. Zarrillo’s saying a whole lot when he refers to “all our experience.”

Beretta is the world’s oldest gunmaker. It was established in 1526 by Bartolomeo Beretta. That was during the reign of England’s King Henry VIII and hundreds of years before James Purdey or Charles Parker were born. Over the last 492 years, Beretta has made everything from arquebus barrels to the M9 pistol used by today’s U.S. Armed Forces. Of course, Beretta has also made all types of shotguns.

In 1933, the company created its first breechloading OU: The Model S1. With sidelocks and a Woodward-style low-profile action, the Mod. S1 looked like a best-quality British OU. What set it apart was how Beretta built it–and its price. Using high-precision industrial techniques they perfected when building guns like their Model 1915 semiautomatic pistol, they updated traditional gunmaking techniques and turned out a world-class shotgun. Price wise, in the ‘50s, Beretta’s top-of-the-line SO3 cost $750, and a Purdey OU was $2,300. This combination of high-quality and affordability made the Mod. S1 and the sidelock Beretta OUs that followed revolutionary. It also made them the first successful Italian over-unders of the twentieth century and the foundation for all the over-unders Beretta builds today, including the new SL3.

Il Maestro Ferdinando Belleri, Beretta’s master gunmaker,

“Il Maestro” is a tough title to pull off, but with the just the right mix of sophistication and flair, Il Maestro Ferdinando Belleri, Beretta’s master gunmaker, nails it. When I met him, I didn’t know if I should shake his hand–or kiss it. We were in Beretta Due, home of the company’s Premium Division and where Maestro Belleri oversees the gunmakers who hand fit, stock, engrave, and finish Beretta’s finest firearms. As Il Maestro prepared to introduce me to his team’s new OU, I flipped through a brochure about this gun and read “The SL3 heralds a new era of Beretta premium shotguns, combining the finest Beretta technology available from our various product families.” Interesting, I thought. But that’s just ad copy. Let’s see what you’ve got.

What they had impressed.

Like Il Maestro, the Beretta SL3 has plenty of sophistication and flair. It’s a sideplated, over-under game gun available in 12 and 20 gauge, and it features a triggerplate-style action with V-springs, ejectors, and a single, selective trigger. The steel-shot approved barrels use screw-in Optima HP chokes, and right now they come in 28” and 30”. The pistol grip stocks are made of rich Turkish walnut, hand checkered (or not checkered, as an option) and dressed in a matte oil finish. Priced at $20,000, the SL3 is far from cheap. But it is more affordable than Beretta’s sidelock, SO-series over-unders which start at $27,500 and run to $90,000, and it’s less than other OUs aimed at the same market, like the sideplated Boxall & Edmiston (£25,200) and the James Purdey & Sons Trigger Plate (£55,000).

While the SL3 retains the classic features I’m used to seeing on Beretta OUs –trapezoidal locking shoulders on the barrels, pronounced hinge pins on the sides of the action, monoblocked barrels–the rest of the gun is unlike any other Beretta I’ve seen before. It’s slimmer than an SO10 and far rounder than a Beretta Giubileo. With its low profile, lack of sharp edges, and sweeping lines, it looks like it was designed in a wind tunnel. The stock is trim and minimalistic through the head and into the hand. There are no raised panels around the sideplates and there are no drop points. The forend iron, action, toplever and triggerguard complement one another with curves, sweeps, and sculpted layers finished in a mix of engraved, polished, and matte surfaces.

Action on the Beretta's new SL3 OU
Action on the Beretta’s new SL3 OU

While the overall design of the SL3 is very futuristic, the engraving patterns it’s offered in ground the gun in very 19th-century styles. Each pattern–floral scroll, gamescene, and fine English scroll–is cut with a five-axis laser system. While the first two patterns have their strengths, the gamebirds and rose bouquets look a bit flat and cumbersome. The floral scroll pattern doesn’t have either of these problems, and that’s one reason it’s the most impressive. It has a gorgeous Renaissance style with cross-hatch accents, and mesmerizing, three-dimensional look. The SL3 also comes in a stunning, unengraved, mirror-polished finish. Unengraved finishes are like Speedo bathing suits for firearms, and any gun wearing one better be flawless to avoid embarrassing itself. With subtle sculpting on the action and superb metalwork and fitting all around, the mirror-polished SL3s looks great. Even if they could blush, they wouldn’t have to.

Centuries from now, after artificial intelligence has taken over the world, our robot overlords may look back with fondness on their ancestors building shotgun components in Beretta Uno, the factory next to Maestro Belleri’s Beretta Due. Beretta Uno is home to the company’s cutting-edge gunmaking equipment. This is where the tubes that become the barrels are cold-hammer-forged into shape and then laser-welded together and the actions and other metal parts are milled out of bars of steel. The machines that do it do more than just run on their own, day in and day out without a break: they maintain themselves and, whenever needed, contact humans for assistance. That need doesn’t arise very often.

But even with all these high-tech techniques, the SL3 still requires at least a month of hand fitting by Beretta’s most skilled gunmakers to assemble and then stock, checker, fine tune, and complete. A good chunk of this time is spent “jointing” an SL3, gunmaking slang for fitting the barrels to the action and a skill machines are still far from mastering.

The SL3 unique three-point locking system secures the barrels to the action and displaces the forces released by firing the gun. The first of its three points is the hinge pins at the front of the action. Then there are the “lower hooks.” These are on the underside of the barrels, and they match up with blocks in the floor of the action. While the hinge pins and the lower hooks are designed to displace and spread out force, the third point in the locking system—the bolt and locking pins–keep the gun closed upon firing. The way the bolt and locking pins are built into the action is one of the most innovative aspects of the Beretta SL3.

On most Italian OUs, the locking pins (aka “bites”) fit flush against the face of the action. The bolt slides horizontally forward to engage with them and lock things down. Borrowing from their DT11 competitions guns, Beretta made a small modification to the SL3: Its locking pins slip into vertical grooves machined into the face of action and on either side of the firing pins. By moving these locking pins back from the hinge pin, Beretta increased their ability to keep the barrels from pivoting on the hinge. It’s a little detail that makes huge sense, and another example of how Beretta always looks to improve its guns.

In testing, the robustness of the SL3’s entire three-point locking system proved itself when it withstood the pounding of 11,500 magnum cartridges with no issues. Something else that’s special about the SL3 three-point locking system: All aspects of it–the hinge pins, lower hooks, and locking pins–are easy to replace. When any of them wear, new ones are easy to fit and the gun can be back to new—and back in the field—in no time.

When it heads to the field, the SL3 shows off its Premium-gun lineage with the case it comes in. Handmade by Beretta’s in-house Custom Gun Case Atelier, it’s an upgraded version of the canvas-and-leather cases British shotguns used to come in. On the outside, it’s covered in blue cotton, with Italian leather straps and corner bumpers, and a Beretta-crested locking clasp. On the inside, it’s lined with quilted wool and features a removable leather pouch for chokes tubes and cleaning accessories. Very classy. And speaking of heading to the field, the SL3 shoots as good as it looks when it gets there. The 12 gauge I used on a five-stand course had a dynamic, weight-forward balance that made it easy to get on a target and swing through. Right off, I was dusting clays coming in, going away, dropping down, and crisscrossing. While the gun wasn’t lightweight, it didn’t feel clunky, and it did a great job of managing felt recoil.

The day after meeting Maestro Belleri and seeing his team’s new SL3, I was back in Brescia, eating pizza in the famous Piazza della Loggia, and thinking about Beretta and their contributions to gunmaking. Why had this company succeeded for almost five hundred years? And why are they still on cutting edge at the beginning of the 21st century? From what I could see, it was because Beretta did things their way, and that “way” included having the foresight to embrace technology and change. The SL3 is the most recent culmination of this vision. From what I saw, it’s an awesome shotgun that does a great job of updating classic shotgun aesthetics with the latest innovations in design and engineering. I would be proud to own one, and I’m sure anyone who purchases and SL3 will feel the same way, too.

Auction alert: 20g Beretta AS-EL, of the best doubles they made…

Beretta AS-20EL 20 gauge Over Under.
Beretta AS-20EL 20 gauge Over Under.

There are two things I hate about this auction listing, and one thing I really love.

Hate: The lousy pics and the “As Is” terms. Love: The gun (or what I can see of it)

The gun pictures is a 20 gauge Beretta AS-EL, one of the best OUs Beretta has built. Beretta started making their AS-line of boxlock over & under shotguns in 1949 and they continued turning them out into the 1960s.

Beretta built these as hunting guns, and the company offered 2 gauges (12g and 20g) and three grades (ASE, ASEL, and ASEELL). Each grade featured hand engraving and all models were build with the quality that has made these doubles so great.

  • Are the barrels tight and on the face?
  • Are there any dents, dings, or bulges in the barrels? Any pitting?
  • Does the gun cock, fire, and function as it should?

28g Beretta BL-3 OU shotgun, 28″ bbls

I’ve gushed about these Berettas many times before. Imported into the U.S. by the Garcia Corporation in the late ’60s and early ’70s, they were good deals in their day. Today, they’re one of the best buys you’ll find in a bird gun.

28g Beretta BL-3 OU shotgun, 28″ bbls

Simple, rugged, and well made, this 28g is a ton of gun in a sexy, lightweight package. And its 28″ barrels make it extra special.

It’s on Gunbroker.com now, and the listing ends tomorrow, 1/5/2019 @ 11:23 AM. Even though the bidding on it starts at $950, it’s still a great deal (and it looks like it might sell for close to starting-bid amount).

Here’s one of the all-time great doubles – and one of the best bird guns you’ll ever find.

Beretta ~ 686 Onyx ~ 20 Ga. ~ OU ~ Double Barrel Shotgun
Beretta ~ 686 Onyx ~ 20 Ga. ~ OU ~ Double Barrel Shotgun

Beretta introduced the 686 Onyx around ’88 and built them until around ’99 or so. In that time, the gun gained a reputation for being a rugged, reliable OU that handled well and was easy to maintain and repair. I saw my first one in the mid ’90s and couldn’t get it out of my head. Like the one for sale here, it had a straight stock and its matte-black finished looked so ‘friggin cool.

Exceedingly Rare Lefever FE Grade 20ga with beautiful Damascus barrels
Exceedingly Rare Lefever FE Grade 20ga with beautiful Damascus barrels

Exceedingly Rare Lefever FE Grade 20ga with beautiful Damascus barrels: For your consideration is an extremely rare Lefever FE Grade 20ga gun. Anyone who knows Lefever guns, knows well that the Lefever small bore guns simply don’t exist in nature. They are really rare and hard to find. This particular Lefever has gorgeous 28″ American Flag Damascus pattern. They are a thing of beauty!!!  The gun has DT, AE, and auto safety. The capped PG buttstock is checkered in a two-point pattern. The splinter forend is checkered in typical later FE pattern with engraved steel escutcheon. The action is engraved in typical FE pattern with flying duck on left, falling woodcock on right surrounded by light scroll engraving. The gun retains more than 1/2 of its original case color, particularly nice and dark on the left side and on top. Barrels retain about 85%+ original damascus pattern. Screws are all excellent and the gun is totally unmolested. The stocks are sound and measure 2″ DAC, 3-1/4″ DAH and LOP is 13-3/4″ over the original lined HRBP. Both barrels measure .620 on the money, and the chokes are .012 (right) and .020 (left). Min walls are about.028 in each barrel. The gun weighs right at 6lbs. This is an extremely rare gun and easily one of the top FE 20ga I have seen in more than 25 years of aggressively chasing Lefevers. Price: $6895

Beretta 450 sidelock side-by-side 12 gauge Live Pigeon gun:
Beretta 450 sidelock side-by-side 12 gauge Live Pigeon gun:

Beretta 450 sidelock side-by-side 12 gauge Live Pigeon gun: An interesting gun that was made in 1954 and it is as tight and fresh today as it was then, some 64 years ago!  Barrel markings tell that the monobloc barrels were made with the best Chrome Molybdenum Compressed Steel, Superior Type and that this gun was imported by the “Wilshire Gun House” in Los Angeles, CA.  Sometime in its life this gun was “freshened” professionally and the 28″ barrels were sent to England to be fitted with five Teague Precision thin wall chokes, that as you can see by the muzzle photo, are almost invisible.  The barrels have a raised solid rib which tapers from 11.3mm (7/16″) at the breech down to 5.4mm (7/32″) at the muzzle; there is a single small brass front bead. This 450 was restocked in Italy (probably by Beretta) with a spectacular and hefty piece of walnut configured with a right hand palm swell and the dimensions are: 14 ¾” LOP over a ½” Beretta pad, 1 5/16” DAC & 1 ¾” DAH with ¼” cast for a right hand shooter. A nicely scaled beavertail forearm with an Anson release allows the gun to be guided easily with the left hand. The sidelock action has cocking indicators, concealed third fastener, single non-selectable trigger, non-automatic top tang safety and it is completely covered in hand engraved a floral and scroll pattern then chrome finished for durability.  All original metal and wood finishes and all are 99%+. Weighs 7 lbs. 14 oz. It comes in a modern Beretta DT10 luggage case with the Teague choke tubes & wrench and with 4 serial numbered turn screws (screwdrivers) fitted to this gun. Price: $12,350
