Here is a set of Parker Reproduction 16 GA barrels that puzzle me.
Any ideas?

Those look the same as the original Krieghoff 16 gauge Repro barrels….

TPS suggests that about 150 guns were produced with these barrels in the two-barrel 20/16 sets.

Dean,
Could you direct me to the page in the TPS where this is stated. I can't find it.
Thank you!

You’ll find it in Vol. 1 Pg. 179.

Greg,
Thank you!
So. Does this mean that the first 150 16 Ga barrels didn't have the Kreighoff Stamp and about 350 more did. Or, were there another 500?

Those are good questions Bob, I don't know.

Do we even know the approximate quantity of Krieghoff produced barrels for Parker Reproductions? Was there about 150, 500, or even more?

At the time when TPS was being written the authors reported “We are not sure of the exact quantity of 16-gauge barrels produced but have information that it was about 150.”

In the article Nick Sisley wrote for Shotgun Sports magazine after interviewing Jack Skeuse he wrote: “Before Tom Skeuse died he had an idea, an ambition, a dream. He wanted to take some of the DHE 20 bores and have them fitted with 16-gauge barrels. But once the Japanese factory closed shop. Jack figured that dream of his dad's was gone. "But I knew it was a great idea, one set of 20-bore barrels for quail, woodcock, grouse, plus a set of 16-gauge barrels on that very small 20-bore frame for pheasants and any upland game bigger than a quail encountered at slightly longer distances. With the advances in shotshells, of course, the 16 bore takes on added positive dimensions. “So, Jack contracted with one of the worlds-known gunmakers Krieghoff in Ulm, Germany. He sent 500 DHE 20-gauge Parker Reproductions to them, and they fit 16-gauge barrels precisely to the 20-gauge receivers. Each, of course, was individually done. It was with a set of 16-gauge Krieghoff barrels I shot the ruffed grouse referred to in my opening paragraph. Those barrels were fit to the 20-gauge Parker frame. Jack Skeuse spoke of these 16/20 combos. "In 1994 this was our best-selling gun. Three-quarters of them are already sold."

As Ed Muderlak would say … “The investigation continues…”

Shown below are 16ga barrels that I believe were added to the 20ga frame in the picture - "through Regeant" (as described by original owner).

Therefore, creating a "factory" 16/20 set.
