Here’s an early heads up on this nice 28 gauge Parker Repro SXS that’s coming up at the end of the month.
In 1984, America’s most famous double-barrel shotguns was reborn as the Parker Reproduction by Winchester. Built in Japan until 1989, these side-by-sides were offered for sale until around 1997. Since then, they’ve gained a following and their prices have risen steadily.
Twenty-eight gauge DHE Parker Repros are easy to hard to find (4,203 DHE were made), but almost all of them have single triggers and/or 26″ barrels. This two-barrel set is unique because it comes with both 26″ and 28″ tubes and it’s a double triggered gun. The condition is nice, too. From what I can see, it’s pretty much brand new.
