Default “BHE .410”

Steve Barnett has a “BHE” .410 on his website. It has D grade engraving and forearm style checkering. The buttstock does have higher grade checkering and carving. Possibly this gun has been on his website previously?

I just went on his website and only saw 3 Parker .410’s and none were BHE’s

Interesting repro https://www.gunsinternational.com/gu...n_id=101305276. It certainly looks like D grade engraving with a B grade stock. Unfortunately, there is no picture of the water table.

Could this possibly be BHE .410-0052 that we discussed here? It maybe deja vu all over again!

http://parkerguns.org/forums/showthread.php?t=23390

It's unlikely that it is BHE .410-0052, since the pic I posted in the referenced thread is shown in its case; this latest Barnett listing says there is no case. If it is not BHE .410-0052, to my knowledge, it is the 3rd BHE with DHE-style engraving built on the 0000-frame that has come to light.

The 1st .410 0000-frame BHE/DHE we discussed was in this thread: http://parkerguns.org/forums/showthread.php?t=12472

Bill, would you please explain the difference between the Parker Reproduction D-grade forearm style checkering of the Barnett offered gun and that of a Repro B-grade forearm style checkering?

Greg... I stand to be corrected on the forearm checkering between the D and B.
Upon closer inspection there does not appear to be a difference. For some reason I had the B and A1’s confused.

Thanks Bill. Just yesterday I had an appointment with an optometrist for a vision test, for a while there you had me thinking about seeking a second opinion.

Out of curiosity I contacted Steve Barnett to find out if this offering could possibly be B .410-0052. It is not, nor is it B .410-0045 as that gun had a beavertail forend.

So we now know that this Parker Reproduction, a .410 4/0-frame B-grade with D-style engraving is the 3rd such gun to come to light. Incidently, all three of these BHE/DHE-engraved 4/0-frame little jewels have B-grade engraving applied to their toplevers.
