In 1984, America’s favorite vintage double-barrel shotguns — the Parker — was reborn as Parker Reproductions. The brainchild of Parker collector Tom Skeuse, these guns were made in Japan by Olin-Kodensha, builders of Winchester 101s.

Today, these doubles are perfect for people who want vintage-gun character without all the vintage-gun hassles (worn out parts, poor repairs, lousy stock dimensions, etc).

In 1984, of of America’s most famous double-barrel shotguns was reborn as the Parker Reproduction by Winchester. Built in Japan until 1998, these side-by-sides were offered for sale until around 1997. Since then, they’ve gained a following and their prices have risen steadily.

There were about 6,000 20 gauge Parker Repros, and almost all of them were DHEs. Most of the ones I see out there have single triggers, so this caught my eye because of it double triggers. It’s up for auction now at Gunauction.com, and the listing ends: January 26, 2014 19:30:00 PT.
