Great article.
I guess the Stevens 335 was as close to a Parker as they could come.

Thanks for all the kind words. A friend pointed me to it; I was surprised to see it pop up after all this time! Guess they had some space to fill

By the way, the gun finally did find a new home; a fella said he had a grandson who was gonna be pretty happy. I didn't mention G.S.; figured I'd let them find that themselves.

Nice!... and a recessed hinge pin - what’s not to like?

Can't imagine many of these were made. I had seen the 335 with the recessed hinge pin but not the 385.

I love Stevens shotguns. This is the first double barrel I ever owned. If I remember correctly itís a model 215 but I could be wrong. I know itís not a 311. 20 gauge with 28Ē barrels. Good solid gun. One I will never sell.

Mike, I've never seen a Stevens engraved like that; gotta be a custom gun?
