Rich, Do not ever say never! I Started my search for 20 ga hammer guns several years ago, and finally got the ones I was looking for, including a Parker Steel barrel 20 ga hammer gun. AsI get older, Damn I am older than dirt now! but still love the "Hunt" I will probably part with some. 20 gauge hammer guns are hard to find. I believe they made 15 Lifters, and 35 TL in all. Gary

Gary, Do you have a letter documenting your steel barreled 20 gauge hammer gun came that way from the factory? If so what grade is it? Thanks!

Does anybody Mono block barrels any more, I know it would take away from the originality of the gun, but with steel tubes you keep the same gauge and should digest some factory loads? Gary

Merrington does , runs about 3,000$ i think for standard gauges .
I think if its a rare gun or one you are really attached to it might be worth it .

If the barrels have been cut down then you have to get a new rib made which is 500$ , which to me is a little high but I dont think there are many gunsmiths in the states who can do this kind of work .

I had my 59.xxx BH fitted with full length Kolar tubes. They have screw in choke tubes and are removable. The tubes are 20 ga and it is a kick to take to the skeet fields and shoot those dangerous Damascus barrels.

I asked Briley once if they would sleeve one of my 10 gauge hammer guns down to 16 gauge ( Hey whats wrong with wanting a 11lb 16 gauge )
They told me they only go down one gauge . 12 gauge has no appeal to me so I just kept my dangerous damascus barrels . I figured they probably have the mentality of swordsmiths , alot of them wont make something thats unbalanced even if its your money to do with . Which is fine but I think a heavy 16 gauge with 32" barrels would be a fun gun to have .

why not use gauge mates to turn that 10 ga into any ga you want....my 3 frame 10 gahas shot many 12 ga shells in it even some 3 1/2 inch turkey loads took a few turkey this way....i shoot the 12 ga in my 8 ga s pretty often...it has always amazed me how good the chokes work shooting a smaller shell in a larger bore and it pattern the same as the large bore....charlie
