Here's yet another 12ga. Parker Reproduction BHE, S/N 12-0056, claimed to be the only BHE Steel Shot Special ever produced.
https://www.gunsinternational.com/gu...n_id=102445366

The buyer of this gun will certainly be purchasing a rare gun as we don't often encounter a 12ga. BHE w/28" bbls., 3", IC/M with double triggers. However, it is not the only BHE claimed to be a SSS ever produced, there have been others as well. One of them, BHE 12-0098, was previously discussed in these threads:
https://parkerguns.org/forums/showth...&highlight=BHE
https://parkerguns.org/forums/showthread.php?t=19537

Pictured below are a couple of pics of BHE 12-0056 currently listed for sale on GI:

(Note: This gun does bring up a couple of questions:
1. Why no "SS" as part of the S/N?
2. Are the choke areas chrome lined?
3. Are the choke leades longer as has been reported of the SSS than those of standard Repros?)

Greg, I thought I had read on a Parker Reproduction brochure that all Repros had chrome-lined barrels…?

You may have read that they have chrome-lined barrels, but we're specifically talking about chrome-lining through the choke area -- which has been reported as being unique to the SSS.

Mr. John Allen special ordered one and his thoughts were that it was the only one to his knowledge. I think it may have been the gun that Jaqua's has listed. But I can't say for sure. John stated that the one he ordered had IC/Mod chokes and that the other BHE guns had M/F. Again, I am speaking based on recall so don't hold me to anything.

And here's another BHE 12-0098, supposedly a Steel Shot Special which sold at a Rock Island Auction:

Jaqua has had that gun for quite some time.
