That may be the only reference we'll ever see for the grooved forend other than the pics published in the earliest ads.

And it also suggests it was an unpopular feature leading Parker to discontinue it almost before they started offering them.

If I had a SBT that needed new fore end, I think I would have one made like the grooved fore end in that Parker SBT ad.

I would guess that the guy who wanted "no grooves" in his forend saw pictures of the grooves in an ad rather than an actual gun with a grooved forend. Mills, I have a feeling that you could make a grooved forend from a standard single trap forend.

I think Bill is correct about the grooved forearm. And I believe the reference to a premium pad is generic in nature. In other words, whatever pad Parker had in stock at the time. If they referenced a specific brand, then it was probably by specific request of the customer. Just my uneducated guess.

I wonder if a Premium pad would be in reference to a price of the best pad offered?

Every time I see photos of the records, I marvel that Chuck can read them and report to us what is written. Once again, thanks, Chuck for your good work.

I would not alter an original. I would not be surprised if one is out there somewhere, or was and got altered

Here you go Mills. Take the one offered above and have it grooved.
