now I wonder when the pointer and setter swapped sides - before or after the hammers went internal.

Oddly enough, Grade 3 Lifters didn't seem to have been as elaborately engraved as the T/A Grade 3 hammer guns.

I have recently been really looking at some engraving differences on Ds so I thought I would share the pics I had found that looked good.


Credit to Brian Dudley, I know 2 of these pics are his D grade, others were random google pics. Thought show some nice variations.

Realized one of the pics is of a C or B, but will just leave it as its a good engraving.

If I ever find a parker with a Brittany on it I am in trouble. I probably couldn't afford it, but that wouldn't stop me from trying.

Default D grade engraving

I have an early DH that has the dogs on both sides facing towards the buttstock. I have never seen this on any other D grade shown on this site or any where else. Does anyone know of any other examples?

That style of engraving depicting the rear facing dogs is very unusual and seen mostly on lifter grade 3 guns. Thank you for sharing that.

Bill,
Please view the attached link to an old (and one of the best) thread titled "Who let the dogs out". Would this gun fit your request for Brittany engraving? I believe the gun was an A grade 20 gage.

Looks like the dogs are boys...
