CHARLES DALY EMPIRE GRADE OVER UNDER 12GA
CHARLES DALY EMPIRE GRADE OVER UNDER 12GA

CHARLES DALY EMPIRE GRADE OVER UNDER 12GA28″ Krupp vent rib barrels … 2 3/4″ chambers … choked Full/ExFull … weight 7 lbs 2 oz … LOP 14 3/8″ over leather covered 1″ recoil pad … drop comb 1 1/2″ … drop heel 2 1/2″ … cast off 1/4″ … double, hand checkered, triggers, with front trigger articulated … ejectors … automatic safety. The top of the rib is imprinted “Charles Daly Empire Quality.”

This is an outstanding Prussian Daly from the pre-war era. All of the metal including the trigger guard, operating lever, tang, forend hardware and the grip cap are profusely covered in acanthus leaf scroll engraving. This same scroll surrounds game scenes on the receiver of pointing dogs on the left, a covey of quail on the right and ducks on the bottom. The metal exhibits a mottled tarnished pewter and smokey grey patina which adds to the original deep relief engraving and makes it more appealing now, than decades ago when first created.

Dark, dark Turkish walnut was selected for the pistol grip stock and three piece forearm. Truly outstanding fler-de-lis checkering is generously spread over the grip surfaces. A narrow wedge of horn is inlaid at the tip of the forearm and the gold inset oval in the toeline has yet to be initialed. The barrels retail 95% of their blue, the bores are bright & excellent and the wood has seen exceptional care. This gun may be better now that when it was made. Price: $12,500

Parker VHE 16 Gauge SxS – MINTY, UNTOUCHED, 6LB 2OZ, UNTOUCHEDParker, Year 1930, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 3oz, Side by Side. Serial Number: 232983. There are LOTS of Parker VHE16ga. guns out there for sale, but this one stands above.  Look at the wood to metal fit, the checkering, the screws…they are factory original and superb.  All of the finishes, including the wood finish, are factory original and untouched.  Virtually 98% factory case color remains on the receiver, bold and vivid (keep in mind the photo flash washes out some of the vividness.  The colors show better in person).  There is  98% factory original blue on the barrels.  There is not one crack or split or repair anywhere in the wood, and the gun measures 14 1/4″ to the factory dogs head butt plate.  The 26″ barrels have no dings or pits, a few light handling marks, mirror perfect bores, unaltered 2 9/16″ chambers, rough barrel weight stamped at 3-2 (which is lighter than most every “O” frame 16ga. you will find), and crisp clear lettering and rib matting. Even the factory jewelling at the breech face remains strong and clear (see photos). Price: $8,950
