Default In search of Parker 16 gauge GH serial # 53944

Looking for a very specific Parker 16 gauge GH shotgun, serial # 53944. There is family history with this gun from new, and I'd like to acquire it. If you know it's whereabouts please contact me at grady2go@gmail.com.

Thanks

Default In search of Parker 12 gauge barrels serial # 49675

Looking to reunite an original Parker shotgun purchased by my great-grandfather in 1887 with its 2nd barrel set that was lost/misplaced before 1960. The original gun was purchased in 1887 and is in my possession. The 2nd barrel set was made in 1890 (cylinder and light) and most likely has the same serial number as the gun, # 49675. This barrel may or may not have a "2" at the end indicating they are a second set of barrels.

I am interested in purchasing this missing barrel set and can be contacted at grady2go@gmail.com should you know its whereabouts.

Thanks

I recently acquired a set of 20 ga. Titanic barrels bearing serial # 190708. If any of you guys have the gun, let me know and we'll put the two back together. No forearm or iron, just the barrels. Thanks.

I have a VH 16 s/n 158321 . The gun letters to a large store in St Paul, MN. I bought the gun about 20 years ago from a dealer in Minnesota. It has a VH fore end on it with s/n 204898 which fits perfectly and works the same. The gun itself has almost no finish on it. It is bright silver from use and the wood and checkering are equally well overused. The fore end looks like it might be from a 12 ga (1 1/2 frame) VH. When I talked to the dealer about it he had no idea about what had happened. I would like to find the original for my VH and re-unite my fore end with its gun.

You fellows keep forgetting that your serial number is not available on a "SEARCH" if you put punctuation or other letters next to your serial numbers in your post. As this thread gets longer, fewer people will read the whole thread to locate their parts. The search function will be the only way for them to locate parts. SEPARATE YOUR SERIAL NUMBERS FROM THE REST OF YOUR POST.

Bill are you willing to reunite those Damascus 16 ga barrels to my A grade. I don't care if the numbers don't match just so the gun carries the 30" barrels it was born with..

Default DH barrel and forearm

I picked up a very nice set of 12 ga. DH damascus barrels and forearm at a gun show last winter. The serial is 82813 . They are 30" with perfect bores and good pattern/color. The fore end wood is above average and the engraving very crisp.

Is anyone looking for this set or does anyone have the rest of the gun for sale? I am only interested in getting these gun parts reunited and do not wish to sell individually.

Eric, when you get those barrels, you will be getting the whole enchilada, a nice little Damascus GHE O frame with three sets of barrels.

I just want to be clear, these aren't for sale.

I also have one with 2 serial numbers, 35,177 and 88,761. That one stays though. It is off a B grade that was originally sold to an American pro shooter that shot under the name of Robin Hood. I bought a 0 frame 16 GH with the Robin Hood trigger guard out of Ontario, and it was about a year before I realized I had already picked up the SSBP off the same gun from western Canada. The letter says the buyer supplied the butt plate for his new purchase.

I've got a few more around here somewhere. If they turn up I'll post the serial numbers.
I'll add one more to the list. It is only 2 numbers off one of the others listed. This one is 134429 . According to the serialization book it is off a DH 20 gauge with 30" barrels and a straight grip.
