Description:

Parker, sn156540, 1911,  16GA, 6lbs. 1oz., Chokes IC/IM 1/8", 
The Parker Grade 2, or GH Grade, is the first in the Parker line up with the more interesting "game scene" engraving.  The wood is nicely figured on the GH grade and the checkering more detailed.  For the shooter that wants a representative example of a Parker bird gun that can be taken afield and done affordably, the GH grade is a great start.  Parker made 607 Parker GH 16ga. guns with Parker Special Steel barrels, and only about 60 with an English grip.  Beware that most GH guns you see are Damascus barreled guns which hold a much different value in the marketplace.  This handsome Parker GHE, sn156540 built in 1911, has all original factory parts and matching serial numbers, and is in top shape, having been owned for the last ten years by an employee of Vintage Firearms.  This gun had the action stripped to the smallest parts, Ultrasonic cleaned and scrubbed all parts to shiny metal, inspected all parts for integrity and function, lubricated and reassembled, making this a VFI CERTIFIED GUN, a $375 service in our shop.  VFI CERTIFIED GUNS have a 90-day mechanical warranty.  Early American 16ga. guns were short chambered for 2 9/16” shells.  PRESENTLY IT IS DIFFICULT, IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE, TO FIND 2 ½” 16GA. SHELLS.  BECAUSE OF THIS, VFI GUNSMITHS HAVE CAREFULLY MEASURED THE BARREL WALL THICKNESS AHEAD OF THE CHAMBER HAVE LENGTHENED THE CHAMBERS TO 2 ¾” AND EXTENDED THE FORCING CONES TO 1 ½” TAPERS SO THAT YOU CAN SHOOT MODERN 2 ¾” FIELD LOADS THROUGH OUR GUNS.  This is a $360 service in our shop.  Modern chambers and long forcing cones make for softer recoil and better patterns.  Other important factors for a smart purchase are the condition of the metal, screws, wood, and bores.  This little Parker scores high in all areas.  We provide the most comprehensive photography and specifications in the marketplace, information that allows you to make a good choice.  Just remember, nowhere is it more apparent than in the gun world…you get what you pay for!  If you want an upland gun you can rely on, buy one that is field ready and can safely shoot modern, available field loads.   See the specifications below.  At 13 1/8” length of pull, this gun is perfect for a youth or any small statured shooter and the price of the gun reflects the limited market.  Our gunsmiths work magic with extending LOP, so if you like the gun, ask how we can make it longer…gracefully. You will know if this is the perfect gun for you. Weighing just 6lbs. 1oz. and balanced just right, SHE NEEDS NOTHING BUT A DATE WITH THE UPLANDS OR CLAY TARGETS. Thanks for looking.
