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

Here’s a classic American double at a fair price. The Winchester’s Model 21 wasn’t the most popular double ever made in US, but it was one of the most rugged.
