Default BHE Repro 28 are there any ..

Wondering if any of these are out there
I have not heard of any in recent months. What is the current market value on a 20. I have see a few at high retail 12000 plus. I am not excited at that price. Thanks & best, Paul

There were at least 2 that sold on the last Rock Island Auction. One was a 12 ga for sure but I don't remember the other. Neither brought anything close to 12k. Heck, I think the A-1s only brought 10k.

Paul - Robin Hollow is advertising one for $12.5k but you have probably seen that ad.

Paul,
Per this letter from Jack Skeuse to an owner (owner's name and address has been removed) of a Parker Reproduction 28/.410 bi-gauge set, there were only seven 28-ga. BHE Repros produced.

The Production Statistics for Parker Reproductions reported in The Parker Story notes that "All BHE grade guns came from the factory as two-barrel sets, but not all were sold as two-barrel sets. Some customers just wanted one set. These extra BHE barrels were sold with other Reproduction guns or fitted to original Parker guns."

Sorry I missed your reference to 28 ga in the original post. I thought you were referring to all B's.

Parker Repro's original plan was to built 100 BHE guns in each gauge.They built 100 12s,100 20s,and as you see from the letter 7 28s.The Japanese closed the plant before the 28 gauge run was completed.

I have a set of 12 ga BHE bbls choked Q1/Q2. These are pretty to look at and work great in the field on quail. Did they make extra bbls or did some one not want a 2 bbl set?

I think that the original plan was for all BHEs to be 2 barrel sets.However,that quickly changed when the sets got split up.We even ordered one BHE 12ga.in a steel shot configuration.
