12 ga SS special, 20, & 28 on gunbroker

Greg Baehman 03-08-2021 04:46 PM

In a follow-up to the above post . . . it's good to see that all three of these Parker Reproductions garnered some spirited bidding and sold at higher prices than what we've come to see as of late. All three were in high to near mint condition, albeit with single selective triggers. Do you think they would have realized even higher selling prices had they been equipped with double triggers? Do you think the single selective triggers were a positive or a negative regarding selling prices? How about the beavertail fore-ends?

In order of the above links:
* 12ga. DHE Steel Shot Special with a SG, BT, SST brought $5913.00
* 28ga. DHE SG, BT, SST sold for $8050.00
* 20ga. DHE having a PG, BT, SST sold for $4725.00

I have watched Parker Reproduction sales and pricing for a long long time now. I am of the belief that if compared, the price of two identical guns except for trigger, the double trigger gun would sell for more. Beavertail forends appear to have advantage over splinter. Straight stock has price advantage over pistol grip.
I believe our S/S interest has its roots in the vintage guns. To me the single trigger is an over/under configuration. I don't usually buy a side by side with single triggers unless it is something very special like a very nice 20 GA DHE, an A1 Special 20 GA Skeet upgrade by DelGrego and Runge or a rare 1 of 3 LC Smith 20 GA early grade 1E.

$8050 for a 26" single trigger 28 gauge Repro?? I just hit the PRINT button.

Looks like 28s are a sound investment. Congrats to everyone who purchased one prior

You're right Bill. At eight thousand bucks we're now into real money territory -- well beyond shooter money.

I don't watch 28's closely but it seems a guy could buy one similarly equipped for considerably less. What is so remarkable about this gun that commanded that high a price? I think maybe somebody just gets caught up in the bidding process.

On the SSS 12ga, the bidding from $5700 pretty much went back and forth between two bidders, so yeah, I think they got into a bidding war. At the end of the day, a gun is valued at what the highest bidder is willing to pay.

The guns were in as new condition & with the original boxes. When you keep them original & clean they usually get top $$. Also, good pictures & detailed descriptions help, too.

Actually, two bidders were willing to pay $8000 for the 26" 28 gauge.:rotf:
