BTW on that 20g Parker BHE with the 32″ barrels…

I put up a post about this side-by-side the other day.

Now this Parker is on Gunbroker.com. Even though the listing end on 7/30/2016 @ 9:00 PM, the bidding has already broke $30,000!

1916 Parker BHE 20ga with 32″ Barrels 20 ga SxS: Very rare, highly collectable 1916 Parker BHE (serial #174053) with straight stock and 32″ barrels. This Parker remains in high original condition with very good stock, B engraved receiver and Acme steel barrels. It is apparent that this shotgun has likely spent a lot of it’s 100 year old life tucked away in someone’s safe, leg-o-mutton gun case or closet. Shotguns of this quality rarely come up for auction as they are usually socked away in someone’s collection for many years and then passed on to family members, never to be seen by the general public. The consignor, after only a brief ownership, brought this Parker to me with hopes of alleviating homefront tensions. This little SxS features a straight stock, 32″ barrels with shiney bores, ejectors (which work with authority), “0” frame and double triggers. All desireable options for any SxS, but especially a high grade Parker. LOP is at 13 7/8″, DAC is 1 1/2″, DAH is 2 3/4″ and it weighs in at 6 lb 8 oz. Both bores measure .618 with .018 constriction on the right barrel and .024 on the left. Lock up is Parker tight and there is no movement between the barrels and the receiver with the forearm off. This is a seldom seen opportunity to own a high grade Parker. Also included with this Parker is the original leg-o-mutton case that A.T. DeForest bought for it. USPS money orders preferred, with incentives to purchase with money orders or cash.

12g Fox Sterlingworth “Trap” with true 32″ barrels

The Fox Sterlingworth was one of the most popular American doubles of all time. From 1910 to about 1940, A.H. Fox and then the Savage Arms Company built around 140,000 of these great side-by-side shotguns to shooters throughout North America. Most were “Standard” or “Field” guns. A few were true Sterlingworth “Trap” guns.

First offered in 1913, the Sterlingworth “Trap” gun wasn’t a grade. It was just the company’s designation for a heavy 12g, 16g, or 20g Sterly with 32″ bbls & full chokes. Ejectors were available as an option.

12g Fox Sterlingworth “Trap” with true 32″ barrels: Good original case color. Gun is tight with top lever well right of center. Mirror bores as original. Right at .725 with 43/1000 choke (extra full). Left also at .725 with 41/1000 choke (extra full). Chambers at 2 5/8″. Extractors. Auto safety. Weight of gun is 7 LBS 8 OZ. This gun points like a dream. Stock dimensions: LOP – 14 3/8″, Drop at Comb – 1 5/8″, Drop at Heel – 2 5/8″. Price: $1,350
