16 gauge Parker DHE double barrel shotgun

Parkers have always been the most popular double barrel shotguns in America. Parker Bros. and then Remington turned out 268,000+ of these side-by-side shotguns, so there are always plenty of them around. What’s hard to find is a Parker Bros. shotgun is nearly-new original condition. That’s what makes this 16 gauge DHE so special.

Here’s some of the auctioneer’s description of the gun:

“Parker DHE Grade, 16 ga. side by side shotgun. Serial #199000, mfg. 1921. Holy elegance, Batman! Wow… Here it is: Simply the finest ALL ORIGINAL, nearly unused DHE I’ve ever had the pleasure of offering. It’s a freeze-frame of 1921 with 98% blue on the barrels, beautifully figured crotch-walnut stock and 90%+++ case color on the receiver. Receiver has nicely rendered scroll work and setter and pointer dog scenes with three pheasants on the bottom of the receiver – beautiful.” See the complete auction listing now
