And most importantly, I love that this gun gives you all this for just $4,100. While that’s not cheap, it’s a ton of gun — and a ton of quality — for that kind of money.

I’m always on the lookout for deals, and this 20g Beretta BL-4 looks like a good one to me. It’s on Gunbroker.com now and the online auction ends tomorrow, 4/19, @ 10:01 PM.
Upside: I think it’s in great shape, it looks like it has a nice, long LOP thanks to the professionally-installed pad. It also has 28″ barrels, 3″ chambers, and ejectors.
Downside: The opening bid is $1,295. So not a steal, but a deal.
Beretta’s BL-grade shotguns were imported from Italy by the Garcia Corp in the ’60s and through the ’70s. They feature a shallow, low profile action scaled to match the gauge and they were build to be rugged, reliable doubles that delivered a lot of quality for the money.
Beretta BL-4 20 Gauge 28″ Barrels: Choked light mod / Mod. The chokes were opened up from Mod / Full and a recoil pad installed by Briley Mfg in 2012. The LOP is 15 inches. The cast and drop were not adjusted. We do not know if the gold leaf on the action is factory original or not. It was present when the gun was purchased from an estate in 2010. The gun is in excellent condition and has been fired very little since it was acquired from the /estate. The action is tight and on the face.

Here’s your chance to pick one of the rarest American SxS shotguns you’ll come across. This 20 gauge Parker AAHE is coming up at Gunslinger Auctions in Glendora, CA, this Sat, Feb. 1. The live auction starts at noon, west-coast time.
Parker made 238 Quality AAH-grade shotguns. Most were 12 gauges. I can’t imagine more than a couple of those were 20 gauges with 32″ barrels. Back then this gun was made, it was one gun down from Parker’s top-of-the-line Parker Quality A-1 Special. While this 20 gauge has seen better days, I bet it will hammer down for $30,000+.
Here’s more info about it from the auctioneer: Make: Parker Bros.

The finish on this Parker GHE 20 ga is rough, but it looks original. It’s a late gun, built around XXXX, so it has all the upgrades the company built into its guns over the years. It also has 30″ barrels — unusual for a 20.
Parker GHE 20 ga Dbl Bbl Shotgun: #232230; 20 ga. 30″ special steel bbls w/good bores. Bbls retain good original blue w/some small spots mixed.

Get on this one fast. This 20g Browning BSS Sporter is priced right, and I guarantee it won’t be on the market for long.
Miroku of Japan made these boxlock SxSs for Browning, and they’re based on the classic Anson & Deeley boxlock design. Rugged and dependable, they’re only drawbacks are their weight — they are a bit heavy — and the stocks can be a bit thick.
This one’s special because it’s a Sporter, so it has a trimmer, English-style, straight-grip stock. This makes it a bit lighter than most 20g BSSs — and a bit better looking. It does look a bit used, but I don’t see any signs of abuse. If it checks out with your gunsmith, it should be a great all-around upland gun.

When I first got into doubles, twenty-gauge shotguns weren’t my thing. I was more interested in 12 gauges and — my favorites — sixteens. But as I’ve aged, I’ve earned a respect twenties. Ammo is easy to find for them, most of them are lightweight, and the throw enough lead to kill the birds I hunt most of the time.
The four 20 gauge shotguns listed below are both and unusual and unusually versatile. Check them out now.

Quality V.H. shotguns were built to be “…strictly high-grade gun at a very low price–the best-made gun of its grade ever produced”. Hunters bought 78,670 of them and made the VH Parker’s most popular model.
Today, VHs are the most common Parkers out there. But how many of them all original, brand new, in their original box, with their original tags, like this one? Very, very few. That’s why some collector paid so much money for it.
Parker VH Grade 20 Gauge Double Shotgun, 26 Inch Barrels, Very Rare with Original Box and Hang Tags: It is not often that we have the opportunity to sell a firearm as special as this Parker. In all the years we have been in the firearms business, neither we or any of the other dealers we have talked with have ever had an original box and hang-tags with a Parker Shotgun. The 1921 vintage shotgun is a Vulcan Grade 20 Gauge with 26 inch barrels that is built on the lightweight O frame. It is in the best condition we have seen in years with nearly 100% original blue and 95%+ original case colors, with the only wear apparent on the gun is a small loss of case colors and small dark staining spots on the sides of the breeches of the receiver, probably from “box wear”. The bores are mint and the wood is nearly flawless, with only a couple of very small handling marks in the finish. This is probably the nicest 20 Gauge Parker most people would ever see, and it is made extra special by having its original box and hang tags. This is undoubtedly a “once in a lifetime” chance to own a very unique Parker Side-by-Side. PRICE: $14,750 — SOLD
For most of the 20th century, Abercrombie & Fitch was the most famous name in American sporting goods. From a retail store on NYC’s Madison Avenue, and through catalogs sent out across North American, A&F sold everything from firearms to fishing lures.
In 1938, the first spread of their Rifle-Shotgun catalog opened with the following copy:
“In our opinion the Francotte, famous Belgian gun adapted by us to the American Sportsman and improved over a period of 50 years, represents real gun value second to none. It is, in fact, an imported hand made gun at an American price.”
Three pages of Francottes followed: From the top of the line Eagle Grade Hammerless Ejector No. 45 Quality to the Knockabout Ejector. All these guns featured Siemen-Martin ‘Special’ fluid steel barrels and could be ordered with Greener-crossbolts or doll’s head extensions. They were made made on what A&F called a “Francotte lock action”, said to be an improvement on Anson & Deeley-type boxlock action, and featured Francotte-patent ejectors.
Price wise, Francottes weren’t cheap. But they weren’t super expensive, either. At a time when a Parker Quality A-1 Special Quality with ejectors was $890, a Parker Quality B.H.E. was $375 and a Fox X.E. was $165, Francotte’s Eagle Grade Hammerless Ejector No. 45 Quality was $550. Their most affordable double — the Francotte Knockabout Ejector — was $175. In between were models like the No. 30 Quality (30E) at $400 and a No. 20 Quality (20E) at $275.
Compared to their American competitors, all these Francotte’s were built on superior designs, featured better finishing and proper scaling, and were more aesthetically pleasing overall. If you had stopped into A&F’s Madison Avenue store and placed a Parker, Fox, and Francotte side by side, it would have been plain to you which one was superior.

Beretta is famous for its OUs. But they’ve also made a lot of nice side-by-sides.
Here’s a nice, lightweight, no-frills one that’s perfect for grouse, woodcock, and quail. It has a few issues, but nothing you can’t fix (or just live with). 1960 – Beretta Model 409 – Silver Hawk SxS Shotgun: 20ga, 2-3/4″, 28″ IM / F, Raised Solid Rib with Rib Extension Third Bite, Single Non-Selective Trigger, Extractors, Hand Engraved, LOP 14-1/8″, Drop 1-5/8″ to 2-1/2″, Weight 5 lbs. 15 oz. Price:$1575
Condition: Mechanically the gun is Excellent. The barrels have a few freckles. The stock has a crack on the left side. This is typical on these guns because of the sharp corner at the back of the frame. The stock is a through bolt stock, so it has no affect on the strength of the stock. Overall, a very nice little gun with the longer barrels that everyone seems to want these days.
The Ithaca Flues is one of my favorite American doubles. While these SxSs aren’t as highly regarded as Foxes or Parkers, there’s something about them that appeals to me. Judging by the success of the model, there was something about them that appealed to other people, too.
The Ithaca Flues was one of the most popular SxSs ever made in America. Available from 1908 to 1925, around 223,000 of these shotguns were built. An American gunsmith named Emil Flues came up with the design and Ithaca turned it into a simple, reliable double available at a pricel below other quality shotguns available at the time. Obviously, people thought they were a good deal.
Ithaca’s Flues came in five grades: 1, 2, 4, 6 & 7, The one you see here is a Grade 4 with ejectors (the “E” in 4E), and to my eye it features enough embellishment to be attactive without going over board looking pimped out
ITHACA GRADE 4E FLUES MODEL SxS: 20 ga double bbl. 28″ bbls with a solid matte rib choked modified and full. Good amount of orig blue finish on bbls. Slight wear at the muzzle. Case colored scroll engraved frame that has aged to a grey patina. Fleur-de-lis checkered pistol grip stock is in good condition. Typical handling mars. Rubber recoil pad. Price:$3,995
Game of Thrones fans know winter is coming. Bird hunters know something far more important is headed our way: grouse season. For folks who hunt in NH & Maine, opening day is October 1, and if you’re looking for a great double to take in the wood this fall, here it is.
Twenty-gauge Beretta BL 4s are great shotguns. The Garcia Corporation imported them and other Beretta BL-grade O/Us into the US in the ’60s & ’70s. Each grades came with various degrees of engraving and touch better finishing than the company’s later 686s. I think that makes them look a bit more refined.
If I had this gun, I would open the chokes a bit (it looks like they’re still the original M & F right now) and get rid of that bad idea hanging off the butt-end of the stock. Then I’d start dreaming about October.
Here’s a hard-to-find vintage American double in fantastic original condition. It’s a 20 gauge L.C. Smith Trap Grade, and it’s up for auction now at Gunrunnerauctions.com. If you collect Elsies, bid now. I doubt you’ll see a better one of these any time soon.
According to the L.C. Smith website, Hunter Arms Co. made 3346 Trap-grade sxs shotguns. Of those, 348 were 20 gauges. The site also says:
“Production of the Trap Grade began in 1912 and ran to 1940. The 1913 catalog stated “In the production of this grade particular attention has been paid to meet the requirements of sportsmen who are desirous of a gun for trap shooting, as well as for field, with all of the latest attachments – Hunter One-Trigger and Automatic Ejector especially – and at a very low price. Each lock-plate is engraved with a trap shooting scene consisting of a trap house and a squad of five shooters at the score. We can confidently recommend this grade as entirely satisfactory, especially for the purpose the name implies. With our special system of boring, no better guns are made for trap than the L.C. Smith Double Gun with Hunter One-Trigger.” The price with two triggers in 1913 was $55, and a Hunter One-Trigger brought the price up to $75. Ejectors added $11 to the price, and $86 would buy the gun with both ejectors and the Hunter One-Trigger. The base price of this grade increased to $77 by the time that it was discontinued in 1940. ”
L.C. Smith Trap Grade, 20 ga. side by side shotgun 26″ & 28″ bbls: Serial #8013, mfg. 1916 by Hunter Arms Co., Fulton, NY. Excellent condition. The rare “Trap Grade” in 20 ga. AND two-barrel set – all matching serial numbers on all iron. Grade E with scroll engraved receiver – left panel has a trapshooting squad of five men and a trap; right panel has a lone hunter shooting at a flushing bird. Case color is mostly gone on the receiver, but about 15% is in protected areas. Good tight action. Two barrels included: One 26″ barrel with solid rib, two ivory beads, bright bore, beavertail forearm; and one 28″solid rib barrel with two ivory beads, bright bores, splinter forearm. The 26″ barrel has 98% bright blue and the 28″ barrel has 90% blue with some wear near the muzzles. Wood is fancy with excellent dark burl and sharp checkering – appears to be have been refinished when the red Jostam recoil pad was fitted. Hunter One single trigger works well. Ejectors are strong and throw hulls across the room. LOP is 14″ over pad. Both barrels are marked “L.C. Smith Trap Grade” – 28″ barrel is also marked “Hunter Arms Co. Inc., Fulton, NY, USA” on top. Includes Cody factory letter stating the Grade E and Trap model and noting the 26″ barrel. The shotgun was finished on June 30, 1916. The second barrel was made in the factory, but it is correct to not see that noted in a factory letter.
