Default SBT # 181261

A few months back an old classmate and I were discussing Parkers. He has a SBT with some good local history. It once belonged to a local gun shop / feed store owner. This is where I and a buddy spent our lunch hours making sure his guns were well appreciated. He was always good natured knowing when we were old enough he would make a sale.
My classmate wouldn't consider selling his SBT at this time. He had a pair of Parker stocks he asked if I could sell and I did.

Three days ago the classmate gives a call. There is another SBT in town. It made yearly trips to Vandalia with the father of the current owner, my classmates father and the gun shop / feed store owner and it was for sale. The current owner turns out to be my third cousin. I see him now and again--we just never talked guns. There was a call, a meeting this morning and a new SBT owner.

A letter is next then we will see what other stories the gun will tell.

Thanks All
The barrels are 34". The pad is a late replacement white line and will be corrected when I can find the right one. I will post a copy of the letter when it arrives.

I also own a parker SBT with the 34" barrel
I inherited it from my father after he passed and he's got it from my Grandmothers brother
I'm wanting to shoot it even though it's a 100 year old gun
It still locks up tight

The only thing I'm not sure of is to either use high or low brass shot shells and what size dram weight to run though it
