Default DHE 20g Ribs

Here are two 20ga DHE shot guns, one a 24" 1910, the other a 32" 1926. The 32"s can be a bit long for carrying, in my opinion 30"s would be about perfect for open country shooting. The 24"s are great for carrying and heavy brush.

Bill Murphy had commented on the long tapered rib being elegant and I fully agree. The long, thin, tapered barrels with a tapered rib are especially nice in my opinion.

This sequence of photos also shows two original barrel ends, one showing a large un-matted space, the other barely a termination line. The absence of a termination line is indicative of a dreaded cut barrel.

These guns have differences that are kind of fun to notice. As Yogi Berra said, you can observe a lot by just looking. I have a lot to observe and learn.

The finely tapered rib really accentuates the barrel length on that gun! Beautiful!

Deleted due to impertinence.

The end of that beautiful tapered rib is barely wider than the front sight. After reading thousands of Parker orders, I have never seen one that specifies the tapered rib. By the way Bruce posted that the barrels are 24" and 32".

Somewhat impertinent at this point but I'll leave it here.

Thanks Bill - I had read the OP's OP a couple of times but still missed the fact that he told us what the barrel lengths were in his OP..... or did he go back and edit his OP to include the barrel lengths?

It matters not though... the previous owner shot me a PM and reminded me of the barrel length and that I had shot that gun when he owned it.

I will add that pretty much all hammerless Parker ribs have a taper to them. They just don't go down to that thin.

I always enjoy your posts of high condition or rare Parkers. Bruce. Please keep them coming. Did all the longer barrel 20s have the tapered rib? This post got me to send in letter requests on a couple that I've been meaning to for a while. One is a 30" barrel VHE 20 with a straight grip, pad, and ivory bead. The bead is smaller on this than the one pictured, but the rib has a pretty good taper to it though not to the same extent with the 2" shorter barrels.
