Stolen Parker Gun
We inherited a Parker handgun, 9 millimeter with serial number G46517.

Unfortunately, the sheriffs department confiscated the gun because our relative was found dead at his house. I guess some or all states do that. Anyway, after getting clearance to pick-up the guns-----The sheriffs office says they can't find them and that there is a criminal investigation going on.

They actually lost 15 of 16 guns. They are sending us forms to complete to claim the loss as the department is liable. Since we have never seen the guns we will have a hard time figuring all this out.

Does anyone have any idea how to figure this out with only the information they gave us on their inventory?

Thanks so much.

The sheriff lost 15/16 guns?? Not likely. For me, this situation has an odor about it and sounds very suspicious. I'd be pounding on the mayors door and quickly making an issue of this. I'd put that sheriff on the spot publicly as quickly as I could, in the local paper and any way I could. Get a lawyer and raise some hell if necessary. Parker Bros. did not make handguns by the way.

The Parker Gun has now been found!
Appreciate your response.

We just got a call from the sheriff. They have found the hand guns in a suitcase. They are relieved also. At least we will know what they really are now.

Actually the make was "PB." I assumed this was Parker Brothers. They did call it a handgun on the inventory and the serial number looks like it was made in 1885.

PB stands for Pietro Beretta, an Italian manufacturer.

Glad to know what kind it is. We will get them next week then we will for sure take pictures and try to find out just what we have.
