The Lost and Found List
 
This is a thread in which you can post any serial numbered items that you have found or that you have lost to your Parkers.
For example, post here a set of orphaned barrels that are in your collection or the missing set of Damascus barrels that should have come with that DHE that you found out about when you got your PGCA letter.
Be sure to separate the serial number by at least one space on each side so that it is searchable.

right
Thats why they are listed here.
They are orphans.
This is the place to list orphans.

Bill Murphy 09-01-2012 02:48 PM

The first weak point of this idea: for every orphaned set of barrels, there is a buyer who doesn't own the other half of the gun. If your barrels are for sale, let us know. If they are not for sale except to the owner of the rest of the gun, let us know also.

30 inch barrels
 
I am looking for a set of barrels from my C grade live bird gun. The number is 128134. The serialization lists them as Titanic but my letter says Damascus. It would really make me happy to find them.

Point taken
But if i just wanted to sell them i could have done that 20 years ago and many times in between my acquisition. I have gotten PMs already trying to buy them.
If they guy who owned your missing barrels had sold them to a chop shop, you would not have the happy reunion you just had???
If they were for sale I would have listed them in the For Sale section.

My search is for 135899 30" damascus 8 bore. Should have 2 on the forend iron and barrel.

Bob Brown 09-02-2012 01:20 AM

Great idea for starting a thread to match up orphan parts. I'll post serial numbers to some skeleton steel butt plates, and if you have the matching gun that it was made for I'll trade it to you for one of like grade and condition. If your Parker letters from Canada or the Minnesota/Dakotas area you might want to check your serial number, your odds are better. These came off grades D to B. I just want to be clear, these aren't for sale.
115,298
168,702
134,431
130,869
67,048
153,280
124,464
I also have one with 2 serial numbers, 35,177 and 88,761. That one stays though. It is off a B grade that was originally sold to an American pro shooter that shot under the name of Robin Hood. I bought a 0 frame 16 GH with the Robin Hood trigger guard out of Ontario, and it was about a year before I realized I had already picked up the SSBP off the same gun from western Canada. The letter says the buyer supplied the butt plate for his new purchase.

I've got a few more around here somewhere. If they turn up I'll post the serial numbers.

George M. Purtill 09-02-2012 07:41 AM

Nice post Bob

To everyone,for the future, leave out the comma in the serial number. That will make the SN searchable in our forum database. If you open up the search tab and type in a SN , the entire database will be searched for anything about your number.

Russ Jackson 09-02-2012 11:20 AM

George, My 20ga was sent back to Parker in 1901 to have another set of barrels made ser # 4634 28" damascus, I only have the original barrels, would love to find the other set they are for a hammer lifter of course. Gary

Bob Brown 09-02-2012 03:44 PM

Whatever happened to the edit function on our posts? I was trying to remove the commas in the serial numbers of the SSBPs I listed above but had to repost them. Just wanted to make it easier to copy and paste into the search function. Didn't we used to be able to re-open and make changes? Thanks.

George M. Purtill 09-02-2012 07:05 PM

Include correspondence here as well???
 
If you have a letter written by Parker or Remington or any other seller or repairers of Parker and it mentions a serial number , this is a good place to post it.

Bill Murphy 09-02-2012 07:08 PM

The "Edit" function now has a timer on it. At least one poster made a habit of editing and deleting so often that the sense of the thread was hard to figure out. This is the moderator's wise decision.

Bob Brown 09-02-2012 09:56 PM

Thanks for the explanation, Bill.

Thanks, email or call me at 928-345-4670 Ray

George M. Purtill 01-18-2013 02:49 PM

Ray
eliminate the # sign when you post the serial number on the lost/found list. that makes the number searchable in our database.

Dave Suponski 01-18-2013 04:02 PM

Looking for PHE barrels 202298. Stock book says they were 28".
Thanks

Fred Preston 01-20-2013 07:09 PM

Anyone know what Parker Bros. did with barrels replaced at customer's request?

Bill Murphy 01-20-2013 07:21 PM

There are instances in the stock and order books of Parker Brothers reusing barrels on guns of a different serial number. Sometimes it is hard to tell whether or not the mismatched parts were renumbered.

John Havard 01-22-2013 03:57 PM

Looking for 12-bore #2 frame damascus barrels for 136234

Also, does anybody have a spare set of #1 frame damascus barrels in 16-bore? I'd love to find a set in good condition.
