1907 Parker A5 Quality BHE 12 Gauge Double Pigeon Gun w/ 30" Acme Steel Barrels ** Mod./Full **
1907 Parker A5 Quality BHE 12 Gauge Double Pigeon Gun w/ 30″ Acme Steel Barrels ** Mod./Full **

1907 Parker A5 Quality BHE 12 Gauge Double Pigeon Gun w/ 30″ Acme Steel Barrels ** Mod./Full **: This is a VERY classy and beautiful Parker Brothers “Quality A5” BHE 12 gauge double “Pigeon Gun” with 30″ inch “ACME” fluid steel barrels choked “Full” and a tight “Modified”.  Built in 1907, this gun originally had a capped pistol-grip stock set according to the Parker book, but is now stocked with a straight-gripped and checkered American Walnut stock set that has been on the gun at least 30 years that we know of, and likely much, much longer.  When we acquired it the butt was fit with a white spacer and a collapsed rubber pad that was hard as a rock!  We had the white spacer removed and a new pad that looks period-correct installed in place of the collapsed hard one.  The length of pull was kept the same as it would have been if the old pad wasnt collapsed, at 14″ inches from the front trigger to the end of the pad.  The rest of this spectacular gun is in exactly the same configuration as the book says it was when it left the factory, a “Quality – A5″ BHE Grade on a size 2 frame with double triggers, ejectors, and 30” inch Acme steel barrels. As you can see from the pictures, this has some spectacular factory hand-cut engraving on it consisting of floral/scroll patterns.  You will notice that there is a panel on each side and the bottom of the receiver with particularly striking engraving with more relief than the engraving around them.  These side panels are round in shape and feature two types of flowers with 7 blooms in each one.  The panel on the bottom is rectangular and is also a floral pattern, with two types of blooms and 5 total flowers surrounded by leaves.  The remainder of the engraving is made up of intricate scroll designs and some classic patterns and detail work.  The receiver still shows some faint case colors in some areas, with the protected areas having much more vivid colors.  Where there are no case colors showing on the receiver it is a very pleasing light gray color. The receiver as a whole has a very uniform patina to it, with no blotches or areas that look out of place.  The gloss blue finish on the barrels, the lower tang, the forearm hardware, and the triggerguard is handsome and bright, showing only minor wear and handling marks.  There are no eyesores or bad spots that stand-out.  All of the screws are original and in good shape, with many “timed” together and only a few that have a little marring of the slot.  All of the markings on this gun outside of the engraving are 100% legible, crisp and clear, including the water tables.  The face of the receiver is in excellent condition, with no damage to the firing pin holes and no circular primer ring erosion visible. This Parker never had a safety, as you can see the upper tang is solid and not plugged.  This is very common for a gun made for live pigeons as these competitive shoots generally are “no alibi”, meaning you do not get another chance to shoot for forgetting to take off the safety, or a safety malfunction. The barrels on this beautiful Parker are 30″ inches with a solid rib, ejectors, and 2.75″ chambers.  We measured the constriction and the barrels are choked at the very tightest end of “Modified” and a normal “Full”.  The bores in both barrels are clean and bright with no dents, bulges, pitting, or defects of any kind.  The checkered Walnut stock set is in very good condition and quite attractive.  It shows some very nice dark figure in it, and the checkering still looks sharp. Both the forearm and buttstock are free from any major damage, cracks, chips, or repairs.  Both parts are nice and tight to the gun with no wiggle, and the joints between metal and wood are tight.  This double is in perfect working order, and the barrels are perfecty on-face and lock up rock-solid to the receiver.  Price: $12,250*

  1. I could be wrong but I think the Citori Upland Special had unadorned side plates and 24 inch bbls.
