How about those rabbits
1 Attachment(s)
I seem to remember that Calvin wanted to start a thread about rabbits but it never got started, so I'll kick one off. I think rabbits on Parkers are somewhat uncommon and this could be interesting to see how they look. We all have seen the infamous "flying Turnip" looking Parker birds; now lets look over the rabbits and see how they stack up.

Here are some rabbits on a B to start things off. Click to enlarge for a closer look.

You're up Calvin, lets add yours to the mix....

Wonder if the same fellow did all the rabbits every once and a while he got a wild hare. This gun is a 1881. What year is your B? Whats on the floor and the other side plate of your gun Robin?

Mine was made in 1879. I have posted pictures of this gun before, sorry for repeating the same old pictures. The other side has a dog pointing two quail and the bottom has a single flying "turnip" goose/duck. But, the guard has two dogs and a jumping rabbit.

The picture quality isn't the best, the animals are hard to see unless you click to enlarge.

I believe there is a D lifter with a bunny in your albums.

Other animals
Rabbits- that was a surprise to me! Any other small odd game? Squirrels? Racoons?
Like they say in the PGCA- "never say never".

Here is AH 10ga. 58911 with Rabbits and other critters. The engraver signed in the last picture.

I assume the signature is of William H. Gough? Very nice.

Dave Suponski 10-23-2012 08:47 PM

Bill, It looks like Harry Gough

charlie cleveland 10-23-2012 09:43 PM

That is very neat Jeff. You may have the only dead rabbit and greyhound gun there is. How about some more pictures I see a nice bird above the hound. ch

You got it Jeff!!!

That would be our friend and my neighbor, John Allgood. He comes up with some amazing guns.

I was browsing Ed Muderlak's Parker Gun, the Old Reliable and came across this Remington Parker with a gold inlaid rabbit.


Christopher Lien 01-17-2013 07:17 PM

Here's another Parker (large-bore) Hammer gun with a Rabbit on it...:)

2 images below...

Best, CSL

What a great photo Chris! Thanks for posting it...:)

I have NO Parkers with Rabbits:cuss::crying:. I have a new goal now:rotf: I think they did a better job engraveing the bunny's than the birds in the early guns.
