Ooops another indiscretion !

Post by 6pt-sika »

A friend told me about a Parker VHE 20 gauge 26” he’d seen at a Gunshop outside of Savanna and gave me their number . I called Tuesday and asked to be emailed some pictures which I received Wednesday morning and before lunch I’d called the place and the owner and I hit on a deal . Guns a little grungy if the pics but I’m hoping it cleans up well . Guns 26” and by the serialization book that’s correct . It has a single selective trigger which I ain’t overly happy about but if it left the factory that way who am I to complain and I can always find a double set and switch it over and put the single trigger in safe keeping . Oh I forgot this is a 1934 gun so it’s my first that was made after Remington bought them .

The WW Greener DH-40 12 gauge I bought when I was fifteen came with a Miller single trigger . I liked it forty five years ago but now not as much . If this gun letters that it left the factory with the single trigger I’ll like it more . To be totally honest fortyfive years ago I thought ejectors were great as I didn’t reload for shotguns , but now I actually prefer extractors . Now in the collector world of shotguns ejectors and factory original single triggers usually increase the collector value .

I'm kinda wishing I hadn't bought this and a couple before it now !

Not that I don't want them but there's another Parker hammer 8 gauge coming up for sale in the next few days .

This thing supposedly has factory original 40" barrels which intrests me a lot just from the fact that they only made a handful with barrels that length 8)

Well got a text from the idiotic USPS saying my package is delayed . The thing was sent second day on Tuesday today was four days yet it’s still delayed . Hopefully it’ll arrive Monday along with the Amoskeauge gun .

Got another text last night telling me the gun was in Jacksonville FL !

Now mail goes from Savanah GA to Jacksonville and then to other hubs in the USA . But it took three days to get from Savanah to Jacksonville and the darn thing was sent second day air .

Lotsa luck getting what you pay for as far as shipping is concerned :roll:
