Just wondering if you got the gun yet and could post more pics. I think you got a hell of a buy. I’ve paid way more for far less.

Hey Mike, sorry for the delay. I have not had a chance to take pictures yet. It looks to be very honest. The bore looked good with no dents in the 34" barrel. The stock looks to have been cut down to 14.5" from 15" but overall in good shape. I couldn't find any cracks and it locks very tight. It just needs a little cleaning. The following research letter came with it as well.

I know where a 32" Parker DHE 20 resides that was also shipped to Honeyman Hardware if memory serves me correctly.

15" would have been too long for most of us anyway. Pretty cool!

Curiously, I find I like a little longer LOP on my trap guns than my other guns. More stability.

To coin a young persons phrase “back in the day” when I could shoot trap/skeet well my K-32 was 14 5/8” and my face wasn’t as fat as it is now . Now I’m finding 14-14 1/2 about right .

Hi Joel,


Looks like an SC to me. Letter states an SC as well. Remove the barrel and the water table will tell you for sure. I will likely have a C stamped on the water table.

Nice gun!! Bobby

If it letters as a C how could it be a B?

Looking at the pics you provided it’s definitely a C.

And of course it has Parker engraving… after all it was made by Parker Brothers.
