If I was interested in 20s, which the price of said guns is partly why I am not, I would consider the price to be about what I would expect.

So it seems the general opinion is the price is in range.

Yikes, I was afraid that might be the case. It is a rare and beautiful gun. My problem is there are more "set money aside for when I see one of THOSE" guns than I have money set aside for.

Save your money and buy a repro at a fraction of the cost.

Doesn't that seem pretty heavy? 7lbs 3oz?

After your done shooting the repro you'll lose very little compared to shooting a pristine 1940 gun!

No thanks Gary. Much of the appeal of these guns to me is that they were made (at least the 19th century ones) in water-wheel driven, whale-oil and candle lit factories.

CNC guns might be more precise, but don't have the same soul to me.

The 1940 era gun in the OP is a bute, but 50 years late compared to most of the guys in my safe. To hold them, like a stitch in time, is pure magic.

To my eye it’s the perfect Parker 20. Only negative it’s too nice to shoot.

Spectacular example of a small bore D-grade but way too nice to take afield. Price doesnít seem unreasonable given the configuration and condition.

For a late Remington era Parker DHE 20 gauge in high original condition, that gun has it ALL.

Makes me curious what my "Doctor's Gun" would be worth.
