The VH was my first Parker, I was looking for a 20ga when I came across this light frame 16ga. Someone restored it at some point, good job looks nice. 28'" barrel choked Icyl/Icyl 2 3/4 chambers and it slays the clays and pheasants!

The DH I just got in on Friday, it's having a problem with a stuck safety.

Nice, I have couple zero frame 16ís, they are great upland guns. I always wanted a 12 on a 1 frame. There are very good people here that can probably give you good advise on the stuck safety, or at least a good gunsmith near you that can figure it out. Welcome to a great organization!

The safety is probably rusted in place. Soak it in some solvent for a day or two. Then move it with a block of wood and a hammer. Very simple solution, if it works. Make sure you pound it in the right direction.

Great suggestion here but ,I don't think he literally meant " Pound It " , More like a couple of very light taps to get her moving ! Of course as Bill Mentioned ,In The Right Direction !

Jim Dispagno made a good point that because it's not the original stock, it might be binding when the 2 screws are tightened up. I think that is what it will end up being, I'll verify after work and report back.
