I handled one of the prototypes about 10 or 12 years ago at Pintail or someplace where his booth was set up.

He began this project thinking he could use the name Parker without checking if the bame (marque) was owned by anyone.

Surprise, surprise.... Remington Arms owned the name until the auction a few days ago. Remington’s legal department put a quick end to the project.
