PARKER REPRODUCTIONS

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. In 1993, a 16/20 ga. combo was introduced in some models. On Sept. 17, 1999, a flood destroyed all remaining inventory, including parts and most of the factory records.
During 2004, Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company offered a limited quantity of A1 Specials in-the-white without metal finish and engraving in 12 or 20 ga. only, without cases or accessories. MSRs were $5,850 for one set of barrels and $6,750 for a 2 barrel set.
Previously imported by the Parker Reproduction Division of Reagent Chemical & Research, Inc., located in Middlesex, NJ. Previously distributed by Parker
Reproductions located in Webb City, MO. These shotguns were manufactured at the Olin-Kodensha plant in Tochigi, Japan to original Parker specifications by Winchester until the factory closed in January, 1989.
