Default Magnum?

All the repro 20 gauge guns with 28" tubes had 3" chambers. Was there other magnum options you wanted?

Default 20 Ga Magnums

My Browning BSS, and all of my Ruger O/U were chambered 3 inches, although not advertised or sold as magnums. It was the equivalent of "defensive medicine" for the manufacturers, as someone might slip a 3 inch in a 2 3/4 gun and claim an injury.

Best, Austin

Kenny and Austin, Thanks for the info. The Parker Repros that I have looked at were short barreled, open choked, guns that were stamped 2 3/4".
It is nice to have a gun that can shoot steel if needed.
The hunt for the "holy grayle" continues.....

As you probably know, you can shoot steel in all except full choke Repros (according to their literature), which were the only ones with 3" chambers (28" mod/full). 2 3/4" steel should be ok in any Parker Repro.

Default 3" chambers

I have a very rare 20ga. 28" with factory 3" chambers Q1/Q2 choked .003/.006 Its a two barrel set that also has the 16ga. 28" Q1/Q2 factory barrels. May be the only set like it. It came from Ivory Beads in the last year or so. ..(-: DT-PG SF thanks Kenny Graft SXS ohio....(-:
