We have not fired this shotgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: Included is a tan leather bound hard trunk case with canvas and fabric cover, serial-matching cardboard boxes for the gun and additional barrel set (each with cardboard inserts, plastic and paper covers), keys for the case, two snap-caps, and an assortment of factory paperwork including manual, all in the original shipping carton from the NSFL.

Our Assessment: In 1984, Winchester was contracted by Reagent Chemical & Research, Inc. to manufacture a new Parker shotgun. The new SxS was a DHE model, available in 20 and 28 ga. initially. These models were fabricated in Japan to original Parker specifications, and the reproduction was so authentic that most parts are interchangeable with the late Parkers made by Remington in Ilion, NY. On Sept. 17, 1999, a flood destroyed all remaining inventory, including parts and most of the factory records. In addition to the standard production models, there were a limited number of guns made for the National Sporting Fraternity Limited.

This example is an NSFL 20 gauge DHE Reproduction which was made with two barrel sets, one 26″ and one 28″, choked Skeet2/Skeet1 and Full/Modified, respectively. The set is in Excellent condition and appears to have spent more time inside the included boxes than out, there’s still factory packing grease on the gun! Also included is a leather bound Parker trunk case. The to-specification D grade engraving looks exceptional with the vibrant case coloring retaining marvelous tone variation. The shotgun has a single selective trigger and has independent ejectors. The fit and finish of this shotgun is truly something to behold. Whether you’re a Winchester or Parker collector or just want one of the finest 20 gauge doubles made, this is a great addition to any safe in America. Please see our pictures and good luck!
