Auction alert: 12g Winchester M21 SKEET, 2bbl set — No Reserve!

Winchester 21 12 GA Skeet Gun 26″ Beautiful 1938! Cased and 2 BBL Set! w/28″ Mod/Full EJT & SST

Here’s your chance to get a deal on one of America’s greatest SxS: The Winchester M21.

This one is on Gunbroker.com now. It’s listed with No Reserve and the auction ends 6/30/2019 @ 8:30 PM.

The M21 was introduced in 1931 — making it a latecomer to the American SxS shotgun scene. But even though it came on the scene as the more and more shooters were turning to pumps and semi-automatic shotguns, Winchester kept the M21 in regular production until 1960 — well after gun companies like A.H. Fox, Lefever Arms, and Parker Bros. had gone under.

Ithaca 7E Double Barrel Shotgun, 12 Gauge, SxS
Ithaca 7E Double Barrel Shotgun, 12 Gauge, SxS

Ithaca 7E Double Barrel Shotgun, 12 Gauge, SxS: This is the first 7E Grade Ithaca we have ever seen, which is understandable since there were only 22 or 25 ever manufactured.  According to Walter C. Snyder, historian of the Ithaca Gun Company, this shotgun was shipped to an undisclosed location on 12/5/44.  The condition is superb, as one might expect from such a high-grade shotgun, it shows almost no wear or evidence of use.  The blue and case-colors are near 100%, the bores are perfect and the highly figured American Walnut stock is ornately checkered and is in near new condition.  It appears that the only non-original part is a proper “sunburst” Ithaca marked reproduction recoil pad.  The case hardened receiver is highly engraved and has six gold inlays including 2 ducks, 2 pheasants, a dog holding a duck and a bald eagle complete with a white gold head.  The shotgun is fitted with ejectors, double gold plated triggers, and the barrels are 28 inches in length, choked full and full (0040″ + .0040″).  The stock dimensions are 14-inch length-of-pull, 2 3/4 inch drop at the heel and 1 3/4 inch drop at the comb. The weight is 7 lbs. 13 oz. The 7E Grade Ithaca is one of the rarest of all American Doubles and it would be hard to find a better one. Comes with a letter from the Chronicler of the Ithaca Gun Company dated 9/5/07. PRICE: $35,000

Good gun alert: 28 gauge Parker Reproduction…

WINCHESTER Parker Reproduction DHE 28 GA SxS Double Barrel Shotgun
WINCHESTER Parker Reproduction DHE 28 GA SxS Double Barrel Shotgun

Many guys think smallbore Parkers are the ultimate grouse & woodcock guns. If you agree, you’ll also think this Parker Reproduction/Winchester 28 gauge DHE is a great deal.

While this gun isn’t cheap ($5,999), it’s priced far below what a vintage 28-gauge Parker DHE costs–even though this Repro is a clone of Parker’s original model.

In 1984, America’s favorite vintage double-barrel shotguns were 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, they’re the perfect for people who want vintage-gun character without all the vintage-gun hassles (worn out parts, poor repairs, lousy stock dimensions, etc).

Fox XE 16 Gauge - FACTORY ORIGINAL, MINT CONDITION: Year 1919, 16 Gauge, 5lbs 12oz, Side-by-Side: Serial Number 300,790
Fox XE 16 Gauge – FACTORY ORIGINAL, MINT CONDITION: Year 1919, 16 Gauge, 5lbs 12oz, Side-by-Side: Serial Number 300,790

Fox XE 16 Gauge – FACTORY ORIGINAL, MINT CONDITIONYear 1919, 16 Gauge, 5lbs 12oz, Side-by-Side: Serial Number 300,790. During the 20 years of chasing A.H. Fox guns of all grades and gauges for my personal collection and to assist my clients to build their collections, the Fox XE 16ga. has been one of the most difficult to find.  I have only seen 5 offered for sale in the last 10 years.  This fine example could be the very best XE 16 on Mother Earth, as it has all original factory finishes retaining 99% case color, blue, and wood finish.  Built in 1919, sn300790 is one of 90 factory-documented Fox XE guns built in 16ga., with only 79 of those the cherished Philly made guns.  Some of these guns have disappeared so it is likely there are less than 70 or so left in the world.  Of the 70, few have this much condition remaining and most have been significantly altered since leaving the factory.  I have examined this gun inside and out, and it is a near new, factory original gun.  The signature A.H. Fox case colors are not duplicated in today’s world. The engraving on this gun is exceptionally sharp and clear and from the prime era of Fox engraving. When you examine the order card you will notice it shows 3 ½” drop at the heel which is an error on the card as the gun has 2 ½” drop at heel and THE GUN MATCHES ALL OTHER DETAILS ON THE ORDER CARD including the long length of pull, gun weight, barrel weight and length.  Errors were made when handwriting order cards.  The gun came from the factory with the 2 ½” drop at heel.  The factory marked serial number is on the head of the stock as shown in the photos.  Weighing just 5lbs. 13oz. and balanced perfectly on the hinge pin, you would be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful A.H. Fox.  This gun has it all…rarity, high grade, incredible factory original condition, desirable features and stock dimensions, perfect mechanics, mirror bores, gorgeous wood figure, perfect screws…an A.H. Fox gun for the advanced collector or avid shooter/collector.  When you consider this is likely your only chance to own such a gun, it is a wise investment vehicle for your hard-earned funds at the price offered. Price: $27,950

Parker-Winchester 20 gauge DHE SxS Shotgun, 28″ bbls, Double Triggers

Looking for a small-bore Parker shotgun but not looking to pay big bucks? Then this 20 gauge DHE Parker Reproduction is for you.

While it’s an exact clone of the earlier Parker shotguns (some parts are even interchangeable), it’s priced at only $3,195. That’s about 1/2 of what you would pay for an original one in similar condition.

In 1984, America’s favorite vintage double-barrel shotguns were 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, they’re the perfect for people who want vintage-gun character without all the vintage-gun hassles (worn out parts, poor repairs, lousy stock dimensions, etc).

Parker VH 16 Gauge Side-by-Side SUPER CLEAN, CRISP, UNTOUCHED GUN!
Parker VH 16 Gauge Side-by-Side SUPER CLEAN, CRISP, UNTOUCHED GUN!

Parker VH 16 Gauge Side-by-Side SUPER CLEAN, CRISP, UNTOUCHED GUN!
General Specs: Parker, year 1931, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 6oz, SxS
Serial Number: 234883
I get to see a lot of fine Parker guns in my business, and high-grade guns to boot, but this fine Parker, sn234883 built in 1931, stands out because of its CLEAN, UNMOLESTED condition.  Another nicety is that it is a full 1/4lb. lighter than most 16ga. Parkers built on the #1 frame, weighing just 6lbs. 6oz. and balanced perfectly on the hinge pin.  Look at the wood to metal fit, the checkering, the screws…they are factory original and superb.  All the finishes, including the wood finish, are factory original and untouched.  Virtually 99% 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), and 99% 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 28″ barrels have no dings or pits, a few light handling marks, mirror perfect bores, unaltered 2 9/16″ chambers, rough barrel weight stamped at 3-5, and crisp clear lettering and rib matting. Even the factory jewelling at the breech face remains evident (see photos). You can look a long time and you will be hard-pressed to find a more genuine and crisp VH 16.  These guns are still a great investment, especially with high condition.  This is clearly an investment quality shotgun that has been carried and therefore can be used and shot with no loss of value.  If you want to see what near new, factory Parker case colors looked like, just check this one out.  They are not subtle, nor “pearlescent”, but bold and strong.  This fine Parker has it all; high factory condition, desirable features, good shooting dimensions, and the factory letter documenting the gun.  NICE!  Thanks for looking. Price: $8,950

Good gun alert: 12g Winchester Model 21 …

12 gauge Winchester, Model 21, Side-by-Side early
12 gauge Winchester, Model 21, Side-by-Side early

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.

To me, early ones like this are sort of like early F150s – rugged, no frills, and handsome in their own way (like an American Water Spaniel).

12 gauge Winchester, Model 21, Side-by-Side early: Double barreled shotgun,   Model 21,   12 gauge,   s/n 1504 (Mfg. 1933),

12 gauge Winchester, Model 21, Side-by-Side early
12 gauge Winchester, Model 21, Side-by-Side early

RECEIVER:  double triggers,   extractors,   bright original blue exhibiting scattered areas of tarnish,   trigger guard and top tang more heavily tarninshed than main receiver,   clear sharp markings on water table,   mechanically fine,

BARRELS:   DESIRABLE 28″ LENGTH,   CHOKED IMPROVED CYLINDER AND MODIFIED,    raised hand filed tapered rib,   EXCELLENT BRIGHT BORES EXHIBITING NO PITTING,    clear sharp markings,   original blue exhibiting scattered light tarnish in various areas with an area of light to moderate pitting on outside of right barrel forward of breach,

STOCK:    pistol grip buttstock retains original finish with virtually no handling marks,   perfect sharp checkering exhibiting no wear,   forearm also retains original finish again with no handling marks and excellent sharp checkering,   LOP 14 1/4″ over factory composite buttplate,   DAC 1 1/2″,   DAH 2 1/2″,

THIS GUN CLOSES LIKE THE PROVERBIAL FIRST NATIONAL BANK SAFE,  IT IS AN ATTIC FIND THAT HAS BEEN USED VERY LITTLE OVER THE YEARS AS EVIDENCED BY THE CONDITION OF THE BORES AND THE LIGHT WEAR MARKS ON THE STANDING BREACH, BUTTSTOCK. AND FOREARM,

THE METAL ON THE BARRELS, TOP TANG, AND TRIGGER GUARD UNFORTUNATELY DIDN’T FARE AS WELL IN STORAGE AS DID THE WOOD EVIDENTLY DUE TO BEING STORED FOR MANY YEARS WITHOUT A PROTECTIVE COATING.

GUN COULD BE USED “AS IS” OR COULD HAVE THE METAL PROFESSIONALLY REFINISHED TO BE A NEAR PERFECT EXAMPLE OF AN EARLY (3RD YEAR) PRODUCTION MODEL 21,

GUN IN “AS IS” CONDITON WOULD MAKE A FINE USING FIELD GUN,  HOWEVER, IT IS PRICED WELL BELOW MARKET VALUE TO GIVE PURCHASER PLENTY OF ROOM TO HAVE METAL REDONE AND STILL BE IN THE GUN AT A GOOD PRICE IF SO DESIRED.
