Default Shotgun identification

Hello. this is my first post on this forum. I recently aquired an old Parker shotgun. It's a side by side 12 gauge. one of the firing pins appears to not be striking the shell properly and it does not fire. I don't have a way to identify the shotgun as the only markings on it are "C Parker" on both sides of the plate. Any help in identifying this shotgun and/or help with aquiring the correct firing pin would be much appreciated. I have attached a picture. Hopefully it displays correctly.

Thank you.

It is not a Parker Brothers shotgun and is more likely a cheap import meant to capitalize on the C. Parker (Charles Parker, founder of Parker Brothers shotguns in Meriden, CT,) name and compete with Parker Brothers shotguns.

Thank you for the prompt reply. I paid 50 bucks for it and use it to scare vermin off my property so not concerned that it's a knock off. I'll see if a local gunsmith can replace the malfunctioning firing pin. Thanks again.
