Default New Member On The Hunt For A Parker

Hello all, glad to join your group. Upland bird hunter here that is looking to add a Parker to my gun collection. On the hunt for a new (to me) grouse gun. Normally carry an OU, but looking to go old school.
So here's what I'd like:
16 ga, 0 frame or under 6.5 pounds, beavertail forend, IC/M chokes but flexible, prefer straight English stock but not a deal breaker.
So if anyone runs across what I'm looking for, give me a shout. There is one I'm eyeing on GI that I could use some advice on.

Cheers, Brett

Your order shouldn't be hard to fill except that the straight grip reduces your choices by about 90% and a beavertail forend should prove to be nearly impossible to find on a 16 0-frame Parker.

Shoot me an email at dsromig@aol.com and I may be able to give you some advice on the one you're looking at.

I have a 16 0 frame straight grip with BTF. There out there just be patient. The search can be both fun and a learning experience. I found mine in an add in the back of Double Gun Journal.

So Rich, you found the needle in the haystack, eh?
Glad they are out there. Perhaps I'll be as fortunate as you in finding one.

Cheers,
Brett

I found a bunch of 16s on GI that I would buy if I needed one.

Brett,

Welcome! Keep looking for the 0 frame 16 with the beavertail and straight stock. That will leave the same gun with a straight hand stock and splinter fore end for the rest of us who love that configuration.

P.S. I'd advise buying a Parker to use while you hunt for your holy grail. You may find it's just what the doctor ordered.

Brett, welcome to the PGCA web site, but to be clear, you are not a PGCA member, you are a Forum Associate. A dues paying PGCA member has many benefits, one of which is a Members Only section in the Discussion Forum. I bring this up because I frequently get checks of $40 dollars instead of $100 dollars from Forum Associates for research letters who believe they are PGCA members.

PA SxS, to be clear, I'm not looking for a research letter. Just someone knowledgeable about Parkers to give their thoughts on a particular gun. Should I join the ranks of Parker owners, I'll gladly join the association.

Brett,

Just some friendly advice. Spending 40 bucks to become a member BEFORE buying your first Parker will pay untold dividends. Maybe the greatest is the ability to post, buy and sell Parkers from and to members. Additionally, although the vast majority of our group is amenable to giving advice on potential buys, you will find many more tools within the members only section.
