    Parker Bros. PH grade 12ga double barrel shotgun
    1 1/2 frame size
    Made in 1896
    30” twist barrels
    2 1/2” chambers
    Mod/Full chokes
    LOP 14 1/4”
    DAC 2”
    DAH 3 1/2”
    7 lbs 5 oz

    $1000 FTF around Raleigh/Durham area. Will ship C&R or FFL within cont. US with prompt payment and for action shipping and insurance charges via UPS Ground or USPS Priority. No trades at this time. Selling to purchase tools to raise barrel dents, etc.

    Stock refinished with a plum/burgundy tint and TimberLuxe hand rubbed oil finish.
    Stock has not been cut and retains the original spurred factory Parker buttplate.
    Stock checkering refreshed to factory new specification.
    Action disassembled, ultrasonic cleaned, and lubed as reassembled.
    Twist barrel contrast refreshed, and clear coat with metal lacquer per historical methods. Original factory finish still remains.

    Gun is tight in the face, is a joy to shoot. The bores are in excellent condition. I shoot 7/8oz loads at 1200fps all the time in old guns without issue.

    One old small crack in underside of wrist that was repaired exceptionally well and remains strong. Tiny chip along right cheek near top lever.
