Truly exceptional & finest quality fully optioned all original Parker 12ga A1 Special w/ fantastic Huey Case - Choice in every regard!!!
Truly exceptional & finest quality fully optioned all original Parker 12ga A1 Special w/ fantastic Huey Case – Choice in every regard!!!

Truly exceptional & finest quality fully optioned all original Parker 12ga A1 Special w/ fantastic Huey Case – Choice in every regard!!!: Exceedingly rare all original Parker A-1 Special 12ga built on a #2 frame with 30″ original Peerless Steel ventilated rib barrels.  Original beavertail forend is beautifully checkered and iron fully engraved.  The receiver is full coverage “Invincible” style scroll engraved with game scenes – very rare on any A1 Special, this one with large Ruffed Grouse on bottom, Geese with Pointer on left, Pheasant with setter on right all surrounded by perfectly executed full coverage scroll.  Barrels with scroll wedges at breech ends and frame with carved fences and carved pigtails on the bottom.  Stocked with an exceptional piece of European Walnut and fantastically checkered as seen in the photos.  Back end of the butt has a small Monte Carol and terminates with its original hardening Silvers pad.  Housed in a magnificent Marvin Huey elephant hide and oak case.  The case is custom fitted for this gun with accessories and is a remarkable work of art in its own right with a replacement cost today in excess of $5500!  Overall, the gun remains in fantastic all original untouched condition.  The barrels retain more than 97% original blue.  Action retains a lot of the original case color, particularly strong on the sides, but percentage is hard to ascertain due to the full coverage engraving.  Easily more than 50%, though.  Stocks are beautiful, sound, and original and retain nearly all of their original finish with only very minor handling marks.  The bores are brilliant and shiny, mechanics are crisp.  Gun was not used very much.  Case is near mint with only very minor rubs. I’ve handled more than my fair share of ultra high end Parkers in the past decade and this one easily ranks among the finest of them all for class, character, originality, rarity, and condition.  The gun is engraved in a really rare pattern in that game scenes are not often found on A1’s and this gun comes from one of the best Parker collections ever assembled and was considered one of the crown jewels in that collection.  This gun should be considered for its form and function as an alternate investment as it is nearly impossible to improve upon. Price: $159,500

Fox SPE Skeet and Upland 16 Gauge – 1 of about 20, RARE!, SST, Vintage Firearms Inc:

Fox SPE Skeet and Upland 16 Gauge – 1 of about 20, RARE!, SST, Vintage Firearms Inc: Year 1939, 16 Gauge, 6lb 10oz, Chokes .020/.032  M/F, LOP 14 1/4″ mid, DAH 2 3/8″, DAC 1 7/16″ Serial Number: 303823. The Fox SP Grade was introduced in 1932.  Just a year before, Winchester introduced the Model 21, a popular shotgun then and now.  Fox saw the opportunity to make some cost saving changes in the appearance of the Fox with the new SP Grade.  With its smooth-sided black frame, rounded stock and action, the gun appeared more an English boxlock, and similar to the new Model 21. Internally it was like every other Fox.  By 1934, Savage/Fox introduced the SPE Skeet and Upland Game gun. A VERY RARE GUN, WITH ONLY ABOUT 20 MADE IN 16 GAUGE, EVERY FOX COLLECTOR SHOULD HAVE ONE OF THESE IN THEIR COLLECTION. This fine Fox SPE Skeet and Upland gun, sn303823 made in 1939, is a fully documented special-order SPE Skeet and Upland and remains in excellent condition.  THE BARRELS, ACTION, AND TRIGGER GUARD ARE FACTORY UNTOUCHED CONDITION AND ABOUT 96% OVERALL. Vintage Firearms restored the factory original wood in 2019 with a Truoil hand-rubbed finish, as the original factory finish was flaking.  Special ordered with a Fox/Kautzky single selective trigger, ejectors, LONG FOREND WITH VERY SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS (one-of-a-kind forend wood), and ivory bead.  The gun shipped with nicely figured walnut, much nicer than most SP Grade guns.  All the details of this gun are clearly documented on the factory order card that is shown with the photos of this gun, as well as a Roe Clark factory letter.  Look at this Fox!  All the hard edges are gone, with the action rounded top and bottom, the breech balls filed to the shape of the barrels like an XE grade, the head of the stock rounded with no “side panels”…a true round bodied Fox.  ELEGANT INDEED!  Price: $10,950

John Dickson & Son has been building Round Action shotguns since the 1880s. Since then, they’ve made approximately 2,000 of these SxSs. Of these, I believe fewer than a dozen of these have been sixteen gauges.

John Dickson , Edinburgh .16 bore round action ejector with damascus barrels . Made 1905 for sale:

Besides being a rare gauge, the one you see here is special for couple other reasons, to: First, the engraving. It’s an unusual pattern, probably executed by Harry Kell. Second, the damascus barrels. According to the seller, this gun was made in 1905. That’s late for damascus barrels, so whoever ordered this gun specified that he want them instead of fluid-steel.

John Dickson & Sons of Edinburgh Scottish 12 gauge SxS Shotgun
John Dickson & Sons of Edinburgh Scottish 12 gauge SxS Shotgun

Stunning, second-grade hammerless boxlock by J. Dickson & Sons of Edinburgh…manufactured between the wars, this bespoke J. Dickson represents a lovely example of the work produced by one of Scotland’s most celebrated makers. Identified by serial number and confirmed by feature, this model was regarded as the second of five grades, and would have been customized to the original buyers taste. The features include a 30″ barrel of durable fluid steel, shared extractor, Anson & Deeley action with third cross-bolt fastener, 3″ chamber, pistol grip stock of fancy flamed Walnut, and embellishment in the form of 75% coverage Acanthus scroll engraving from one of Edinburgh’s most accomplished masters. A remarkably original example, this gun was undoubtedly ordered by someone of means and-despite the British tradition of frequent refurbishment-appears to have only seen standard maintenance, as well as a period reblue of the barrels and refreshing of the stock, with the factory case colors, although softening, remaining at a lovely 60%. A stunning example of an English classic from the end of Britain’s golden age of gun making, this shotgun-reproved in 1997 and ready for trips afield this Fall-would be an outstanding addition to any discriminating collection.

Condition

Excellent, the re-blackened barrels are at 90%, the original bluing on the underside of the frame is evenly faded but remains at a lovely 75%, with the frame displaying softening but rich pastel case color hues trending from pink to violet and blue. There is dried lubricant, as well some honest fading, but neither rust or pitting are present on any metal surface. The markings include matching numbers, period Birmingham House proofs, J. Dickson & Sons signature on the sides of the receiver and Edinburgh address on the top rib of the barrel. None of the markings have been buffed, and the engraving is brilliantly executed, and finely preserved with crisp edges. Other markings include an importer mark on the barrel from the shotgun’s re-import in 1997, as well as London House proofing from that period-the gun remains in proof. The furniture displays some handling marks and a tight, non-flexing hairline crack extending from the right of the upper tang that, having been properly attended to, does not extend all the way through. The stock is capped with a horn grip cap and period Silver’s rubber recoil pad, and the forend, fitted with an Anson & Deeley release and ebony tip, is original and excellent. Mechanically flawless, the lock up is tight with both bores on face, the gun exhibits unparalleled balance, and both bores-clean and mirror bright-are excellent to near-mint.

It’s a 12 gauge J. Dickson & Son boxlock ejector with short, 2″ chambers. Twelve gauge shotguns with two-inch chambers were popular in the 1930s. People liked how they were lightweight guns, but they were still big enough to feel right to people who had always shot 12-gauge guns.

A.H. Fox A-Grade 20 Gauge, SxS – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK NICE
A.H. Fox A-Grade 20 Gauge, SxS – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK NICE

A.H. Fox A-Grade 20 Gauge, SxS – FIGURED STRAIGHT STOCK NICE: Many gun lovers reading this ad regularly scour the internet for good deals on Fox shotguns.  One thing for certain; the availability of graded 20ga. Fox shotguns has dwindled to nearly zero.  Shooter/collectors have recognized the Fox 16ga. and 20ga. guns are the most well balanced, lightest weight, best handling guns of all the vintage American doubles.  It is also known that they have the simplest, most reliable actions as well.  They only made about 2400 A Grade 20ga. Fox guns, with likely less than 2000 remaining in action due to loss and damage. This little Fox A Grade, sn203917 produced in 1938, is an awesome find.  First, it is a factory English style grip, which is very rare (less than 10% made with English grip, or 240 guns).  The handling characteristics and aesthetics of an English grip little Fox is as close as an American double gun will come to being comparable to the finest English makers.  This gun weighs just 5lbs. 14oz. and balances dead on the hinge pin…it seems to float to your shoulder and balances perfectly in hand.  Next, the wood on the gun has much more figure than you will normally find on and A Grade Fox, and we all love nice wood!  Then we have this beautiful condition and pleasing patina to this gun, with 65% bright vivid factory case color, perfect screws, superb wood to metal fit, modern dimensions with the original butt plate…all these things add up to a superior vintage Fox gun.  The factory order card shows the gun “as shipped”; even the chokes and chambers are unaltered since leaving the factory. Price: $6,250

Piotti King #1 12 Gauge Sidelock Side by Side99% CASE COLOR, CASED, EXHIBITION WOOD. Year 1991, 12 Gauge, 6lbs 13oz, SxS. Piotti shotguns are considered Italian “BEST” guns and are equal to any double guns made in the world.  Some say they even surpass a Purdey!  A full sidelock Holland style action, engraved by Italy’s best, stocked to the fences, chopper lump barrels, all combine to make a fine game or clays gun.  This Piotti, sn9032 made in 1991, has exhibition custom ordered factory upgraded wood, gold shield in forend, blank gold shield in belly of stock, 27″ barrels, 6lbs. 13oz., balanced on the hinge pin for dynamic handling, and the original factory case.  This is a gun that would cost $46,830 if ordered new today at 2017 prices from William Larkin Moore. This is a grand investment, and will continue to grow in value as the price of new guns like it increase.  Buying a fine Piotti at less than half price is the way to go! Price: $18,900
