Dean , GOOD JOB ! Did you mention to Jason ,since he knows the mans name which sold the Parker to his Grand Father that it would be in his best interest to call Larry D. since they didn't keep serial#'s but they did /do keep records by customers names !

No I didn't think to tell him that. Thanks for the reminder Russ

Jason, if you're reading this, you should definitely contact Lawrence Del Grego in Ilion, NY to ask him if he can supply any information about the work they may have done for the man who sold it to your grandfather.

I drove the whole way from my place to Larrys to show him my 410 BHE Upgrade that was upgraded by his Grand Father and Robert Runge for Otis Odom ,he was very helpful with his insight and very willing to share his knowledge ! It was quite a trip , some seven hours each way I believe, but he knew about the gun and even wrote me a letter of authenticity ! My Wife and I enjoyed visiting with Larry and he spent a large part of his day showing us some very cool Parkers in his shop ! He also looked the CHE 20 Gauge over and felt it was all Parker original even the unique checkering and the Serial # stamps on the stock fit the original Stamps ,very cool to see some of the original tools ! If he remembers Jason's Grand Father or has record of the man that sold him the gun , Jason will enjoy visiting with Larry very much !

The 20 gauge barrel set is 24".

I'll give Larry a call and keep you all updated. So great that everybody is helping out with this, I really appreciate it! Very cool community here.

Jason - What's the latest on this gun?

Did you ever speak with Lawrence DelGrego?

Hi Dean, I did, he did not have any records matching the name of the previous owner. He said he'd need to see the gun to confirm but I won't be getting to NY anytime soon. It's also possible if he did restock this one that it was done by another owner that I'm not aware of. Too bad they never recorded serial numbers.

I agree that recording serial numbers of guns they worked on would have been a far better way to find records. Owners change over time but serial numbers remain constant.

In reviewing the photos you had linked to another post. The gun certainly IS a an older Delgrego “restoration”. It has many telltale signs of it.

That was my opinion Brian when I examined the gun.
