Default Comparing a 1 1/2 frame to a 3 frame

I just thought the comparison was interesting. The gun on top is a VH 12 gauge on a 1 1/2 frame. The gun on bottom is a BHE 12 gauge on a 3 frame.

That is a fun exercise. The 3 frame 12s dwarf the others

If I was carrying my gun on a hunt I’d sure rather carry the 1 1/2 frame. If I was in a duck blind or turkey blind I’d prefer the 3 frame...

Another testament to Parker craftsmen.

Did other American double makers have the multiple frame size options Parker did?

None had as many as Parker -- by far they had more different frame sizes.

Not to the extent Parker did. There are probably other examples but the LC with their regular weight and feather weight frames come to mind.

It’s amazing to me that at one time in our country we were that service oriented to provide that many options. I collect classic cars too and I see the same multitude of options that were available to customers back then. We have really changed.
