Parker AAHE Awarded 2009 Timeless Classic
Madison, NC – Sporting Classics Magazine presented its 2009 Award of Excellence in the Timeless Classic category to Remington Arms Company, Inc. for the company’s commitment in offering the exceptionally-handcrafted Parker AAHE 28-gauge double barrel side-by-side. The award was presented to Carlos Martinez, Remington’s Product Manager for Premium and Custom Firearms, during the recent Safari Club International Convention held in Reno, Nevada.
“The Parker Gun has been revered by shotgun enthusiasts worldwide as one of history’s most remarkable guns,” said Martinez, when accepting the award. “And to bring this classic masterpiece back to the marketplace today in its original design is a privilege for those of us involved. I would like to express our sincere thanks to Sporting Classics for recognizing the AAHE 28-gauge as a timeless classic and acknowledging Remington’s role.”
Each year Sporting Classics editors nominate products from across a range of categories to be reviewed and then voted upon to determine those products and services most deserving of this prestigious designation. Now in its tenth year, the Sporting Classics Awards of Excellence recognize innovative products and those that have stood the test of time. The Parker Gun will be featured in the March/April issue with all of the Excellence Awards winners.
For nearly a century and a half the Parker Gun has been a fixture on the landscape of American firearms. Considered one of the finest sporting arms ever made, Remington acquired Parker Gun Works operations in 1934. In 2006, Remington, along with Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing, engineered the comeback of this masterpiece. Today’s Parker AAHE 28-gauge combines sophisticated gun making technology with exceptional hand checkering and engraving, making it one of the most elegant examples of craftsmanship in history.
