Both are nice shotguns....they are in line with the market values over the past year. We are in a soft market, some wiggle room may be there. SXS Ohio

SXS, thanks for sharing. I’ve only been looking seriously for a few weeks and I’m trying to wrap my head around what’s available and what market prices are, generally. It really helps to have guidance from the experienced!

Many Repros are out there for fire sale prices if you keep your nose to the ground. True bargains are gone real quick, so you have to be quick and thorough in your search. Don't know, but I would guess, that the guns you posted have been for sale for a long time.

Bill,

Thanks for your reply! What would you consider a good price for the two guns I posted?

BTW, I really like the “B” grade gun but am scratching my head trying to understand why it’s so much more expensive than the “D” grade gun. Is it the sculpted fences, more elaborate checkering or just that there are fewer “B”s than “D”s?

Best;
Brett

For some reason they pit the “Parker Bros” name on B and A-1 Repros.

Brett, Brian Dudley may be a better source for prices than I am, although I have been in the Repro watching business since the beginning. I think the mid fives are a good price for a 12 gauge DHE 2 barrel set, and the mid tens might be a bit high for a BHE two barrel set. The holy grail of 12 gauge Repros is a double trigger gun with only one set of 28" barrels. Those guns will go up in price very fast in the next ten years at which point they become very expensive or unobtainable. Two barrel sets or 26" one barrel Repros with single triggers should sell for reasonable or lower than reasonable prices forever. Get up every morning and look at the gun sites for new entries and you will find what you want at a reasonable price.

Bill, you say that the 28" double trigger 12 ga is the holy grail? I have recently acquired a couple of repros from a relative that purchased them new and one is this configuration. It is also a SS version. It is nice but I still like my GH dimensions better.

I watch the repro market fairly close but not as much as some. So, take my opinion for just that. I think the B's are all over priced. When I purchased my first in the mid 80s you could buy a B for just a bit more than a D. For some reason the dealers now seem to think they are golden. Nice guns but not worth the $10k+ some are asking.

The D is a nice gun but nothing special. The price is pretty strong I think. Selling the fact that it is supposedly unfired. Lots of 2 barrel sets used but in good shape for quite a bit less, especially 12's

Keep looking. Perhaps http://parkerguns.org/forums/showthread.php?t=29859
