In Catholic School, the nuns taught us that to covet is to sin. The second I saw this double barrel shotgun, I sinned. It’s a 16 gauge Parker BHE and it appears to be all original.

Parker made just 1,034 BH-grade hammerless shotguns. This one was built in 1924 and it was ordered with Extra Fine Damascus barrels – an unusual choice for such a later Parker. At $35,000 it’s not cheap. But judging by what nice, high-grade Parkers are bringing these days, it’s not that expensive, either.
