I think $1495.00 is a fair price for a Parker SC in original condition. What do other posters think?

Sure Bill, at that price I might buy a half-dozen.

YES, spot on! That's what I came up with, or at least under $1500, even for a 90% gun. The asking price of the one offered to me was $3900, nearly 3 times as much.

I will say, with the engraving and the quality of production, it really does look like a 4k gun--UNTIL you do your research.

At $1,500.00, I would buy every original condition Parker SC I could lay my hands on. That's more the price range of an Ithaca Flues 4E. I'm going to say the average price for a Parker SC in original condition is more like 3 grand. And that's a bargain for the quality of the gun.

It all depends on how badly one wants one of these SC's

One might check Puglisi Gun site under just arrived inventory... Could be a nice shooter

Looks like a nice gun but something is up with the vent rib.

It is difficult to find a good Parker SBT in C grade that is not hacked up too bad for under $3k.

Often ones at auctions that are very badly cut up sell for $1,300-$1700.

Good ORIGINALS can be found for under $3000 but they are rare.
