The question is whether he owned any other SBTs during that time.

Someone might check serial # 180116? In my years of trapshooting and collecting I remember reading Fred Gilbert shooting this SBT...

I saw an ad Parker put out about Gilbert's straight run and the SBT pictured is a higher grade than mine and also a straight grip. That still is not conclusive though.

S/N 180116 was ordered by Fred Gilbert but if I read the order book entry correctly, it looks like he ordered it with the intent to sell. The entry reads "charge his reg a/c (account?) will remit when sold". It's a standard SC with a CPG at $150.00.

Also unusual is that the stock book entry has F. Gilbert. I don't ever recall a name being in a stock book entry.

I looked online (am sure others have, too) and found a couple photos of Gilbert. One had him holding a Parker double. There is a Parker ad touting his record and showing a SBT, but that is no indication of his using any particular gun. The forend in the ad has the forend with the grooves along the side. Photo attached.

Really interesting mystery.
