Default DHE 20GA 2 Barrel Set Value?

I recently picked up a Winchester Parker Reproduction that appears to be new and unfired. It is a DHE 20 gauge with 26" & 28" barrels with the case and a bag for the case to go in. Beavertail forend, SST, pistol grip. Anyone have any idea what the value would be of this gun? I haven't seen the DHE in a 2 barrel set in my searches.

Bret, I guess what ever you paid for your two barrel set is the value of the gun.

Look on Guns international or Gun Broker there are a few sets on those sites.

They are not rare. You should have no trouble finding comparable guns.

Good timing. Granted, the linked auction isn't a 2-barrel set but, it's of a similar configuration. (save wood quality of course)

Best kind of auction to gage the market, too.

True, not rare, but in 71 gunsinternational listings, not one 20 gauge 2 barrel DHE set is listed.

Umph. Maybe pictures don't do that gun justice. That big honkin beavertail forearm with those short barrels almost make that gun look like a coach gun on tops of a Well Fargo run by its profile. I like 26 barrels for a tight cover hunting gun (insert endless debate discussion here on barrel lengths), but that configuration on that gun looks like something you would hide in a duster doing your ok corral reenactment.

BTW for me that is the first no no for my taste when it comes a gun to have all that longwise grain in the stock by the action. It looks like striped shorts with a plaid shirt, it just looks too busy. Structurally not a fan since it could split more easily along that grain but I am sure there are some arguments about that as well.

Todd, I don't suspect your thoughts are uncommon however, it's all subjective. I've personally come to appreciate the BTFE offered on the PR but I must admit I shared your same sentiments until I acquired a PR w/btfe and, actually used it - game-changer. Especially on the 28ga where the BTFE just seems perfect.

My take is this - regardless of wood quality or configuration; the mere fact that we're presented with virtually new guns thirty+ yrs later, in various configurations, be a good thing. I'm thrilled to have just about any PR and I appreciate the individual guns for what they are whether they are worthy of a museum or destined to be tossed in the back-seat for a drive with a bird-dog in tow. They're great guns and the result of the effort, with the same degree of quality & value that was put into these guns, will never repeat itself again. Our world has changed dramatically.

Scot I don't think I can disagree with any one thing you just said. When I saw individual pics of stock, receiver, forearm, barrels, I thought wow great little gun and it still is probably in form and function. But just stepping back and looking at big picture of whole configuration it just did not come together right for me. Hey, guilty, I am selective and a gun discriminator. Btw if that gun was gifted to me then it would be the best thing since sliced bread and old saying applies " never look a gifted horse in the mouth".
