Hi, Ruth,

Welcome to the Forum, and congratulations on your "new" Parker. I'm pretty sure that we have been introduced to you in a way by posts from Richard, but in any event, I hope you enjoy your new gun and get lots of opportunities to shoot it. You have already had some good tips on some ways to connect more with the vintage gun shooting community. I hope you can find a good buddy or two to discuss your gun your new, developing passion for Parkers. I know you can come to "know" some of us through this Forum. There are lots of knowledgeable, good-hearted folks just a click away.

Thank you so much everyone for your heartwarming welcome! I am not sure how to reply to people directly in the thread so I am going to private message those of you who offered to help me find some nice places to shoot near me. I am getting a new camera soon for work so I will be uploading some pretty photos at some point too. Plus it is supposed to be a fantastic low light video recorder too so hopefully I can get some nicer videos shooting at something other than water bottles! Thanks again everyone and I am happy to be a part of this world.

Your uncle Rich is one of my favorite hunting partners, I have seen your Parker many times and knew that he was saving it for you. Rich is a special and gifted person. Come meet his friends at Pheasant Fest February 22-24 in Schaumburg. Second floor by the stairs.

Rich and Charlie Herzog west of Broadus Montana by the Wolf Mountains and following the trail Crazy Horse took from the Rosebud battle to the Little Bighorn Valley.

Not sure if anyone noticed, but this VHE20 I gave to Ruth does not have "Parker Bros" engraved on the side of the receiver. It's not on the bottom either. It's a 1931 gun. Strangely enough, I never noticed this myself until Ed Muderlak was at my house and brought it to my attention. Does anyone else have one like that?

That is what's known as a "transition gun" but yours is kind of early to be lacking Parker Bros. or Parker on the frame. We generally see that on 1933/34 guns.
Perhaps the serial numbered 'barreled action' for some reason, was not completed until during the transition years when Remington and Parker were striking the deal.

I have seen a few like that. A friend owns 236199 a beautiful GHE 16 with loads of condition that has no Parker Bros. or Parker on the exterior of the frame at all but the barrel rib legend is typical for a late Parker Bros. GHE.

Incidentally, I attribute the engraving on 236199 to young Robert Runge.

Roger that Dean. I was aware of that. My other transition gun has PARKER engraved on the bottom and nothing on the sides. This one has the normal rib legend. It's embarrassing that I never even noticed the lack of it on the sides for all those years! That is a nice G grade you posted here.

Wish it was mine! I made a very reasonable offer about 12 years ago. He knows I want it so the ball’s in his court.

Yes. You must be SURE to go to PheasantFest! Be sure to visit at length the PGCA booth. You will come away with a wealth of knowledge and quite probably a few new friends.

Richard, I have two. Both 20 ga., VHE 235964, PHE 235972. Strangely enough I had owned the VHE for almost 35 years, was sitting on a dove stool waiting for the afternoon flight, when I noticed the lack of markings on the frame. The barrels had the typical markings.
