Serial Number: 188911

This GHE, sn18891, shipped in 1920, was modeled after the highly sought after WIDGEON DUCK CLUB GUNS.  Famed Parker salesperson Arthur W. duBray had colluded with R.F. Cross, President of the Widgeon Duck Club, to come up with heavy, hard-hitting 20 bore guns to keep things more sporting at the club.  Chambered at 2 7/8" to shoot the new 3" shell that had been introduced in 1912, with 32" M/F barrels and a 20ga. on the #1 (16ga.) frame, these guns have earned their place in history and are highly coveted by shooters and collectors.  This is a very rare opportunity to own a piece of history, and a gun of great usefulness.  Vintage sporting clays shooters are always after long barreled, heavy for gauge Parkers as the recoil factor is greatly diminished, and the long heavy barrels keep you swinging through the target.  Ditto for wild pheasants, doves, pigeons, crows, ducks, geese, and turkey.  A very different and versatile Parker that is sure to increase in value as you enjoy its use.  Another nicety is the very hard to find Miller Single Selective Trigger, the best single selective trigger every devised.  This fine Parker has been nicely Turnbull restored and is in perfect mechanical condition. They only made 992 GH grade Parkers in 20ga., only 40 with 32" barrels.  THIS IS A RARE PARKER WITH LONG BARRELS AND SINGLE SELECTIVE TRIGGER.  Thanks for looking and don’t let this one get away!
