Default I've got a new girlfriend / #190872

I just recently met this lovely lady and I think I'm in love. She's an O frame VHE 20 gauge straight grip stock (apparently cut at some point). Per the serialization book she left the factory with no saftey and 2 sets of barrels (32" and 28") that interestingly both started the process at 3lbs, 8oz. She appears to have been well loved and spent many days afield and/or at the range. The 28" barrels show more wear and the forend is noticeably larger and heavier. There are no records available but she has to have a great story to tell. If one of our members has a personal history with her I'd love to know it. Serial #190872.

*** I misspoke, The gun is not in the serialization book. I misinterpreted the seller description that indicated that the gun was a 2 barrel set. It appears that the 2nd set (28") is a later set of barrels.

I can see a Kansas covey rise in front out that nice gun.

Great find there Dan,

That one has to have a pretty special history.

Dang, that is nice! I just acquired a VH 0 frame 16 gauge 2 barrel set myself. Yours is a bit nicer

Mine is 26 1c/m and 28 m/f which suits my purposes well

Nice two barrel set. I once had a 28"/32" 20 DHE myself. Those long legged Parker small bores are the best!

She looks lovely Mills. Mine has her bumps an bruises too. I've become very fond of the well worn, honest looking guns that appear to have spent a good portion of their lives performing the functions they were created to do.

I've thumped a few pheasants with her and yesterday was my first opportunity to shoot some targets. Those 32" tubes swing beautifully.

Someone said if it is worn, that means it was a good gun for someone. I believe that is true
