Default DH 32"/28 bore Duck gun

There's an active thread on the Fox Collectors members forum re: period duck hunting with a 20 bore, and that flushed out some 28-gauge Duck gun info dated 1912.

Posted here for info is this inset by a CA small bore cult duck man showing 40 yard pattern efficiency with a "Special" Parker DH 28 bore/32 incher. 81% pattern with 11/16 ounce of #7 chilled shot and 3/8" penetration in dry pine at that distance.

When I read the title of the thread I initially thought it was a 32" DH 28 gauge for sale. My pulse is nearly back to normal now. Reggie is probably still down

That is quite an impressive pattern, gun as well I am sure.

[QUOTE=Dean Romig;297987]I sure wish there were pictures of this amazing Parker!



And here's the guy and the gun that did it - notice the comparison between Hedderly's 32" 28 ga. DHE barrels and his overall height, porch mount notwithstanding. Easily explains his specified LOP in his custom-ordered Parkers as between 15 1/4 and 15 5/8 inches - what they refer to in Kansas & other parts of the midwest as, "a long drink of water".
