Could someone with a current Blue Book check the current value of a 12 ga. Parker DHE? About 50-60% original finish, skeleton butt plate, ejectors. Ran into a guy at a gun show today walking around with it. He wants $4,000. I may be interested at $3-3,500 if book value is there.

Thanks

Ken

Bigbore, Is that a current BB? Haven't seen prices like that since I use to think "I should buy a few before the price goes up." That was years ago and of course I never did buy any.

2005 26th Ed. BB:

Parker GH 60% $1625

Parker DH 50% $2550; 60% $3150; Add 50% to 100% for ejectors depending on original condition(DHE Model).

So at $3825 plus for 50% and $4725 plus for 60% condition, asking $4000 would seem reasonable.

PARKER REPRODUCTIONS : SHOTGUNS: SxS Because of the high quality and limited mfg. of these reproductions, they have become very collectible, as they offer the shooter the only realistic alternative to using an original Parker Bros. shotgun.

Thanks for all the help, guys. Looks like I may have passed up a good deal, but he may call within the next few days. If not, there will be others.
