It can be removed.

I have had nickel removed from a set of L C Smith barrels I purchased, take the barrels to a plating company they can strip the plating but ask how to neutralize them as my barrels started to rust shortly after having the process done.

Yes I actually have a good friend who cerekotes for big name companies. He does alot of custom builds. We are going to strip it and I have an old fellow that is known for restoring these old guns who is about 3.5 hours away from me. I'm gona pay him to refinish the barrel and do a good all over cleaning. I was referred to this guy in elijay ga who restores antique guns.

After having seen the pictures of this Parker, I believe the serialization book to be wrong about the grade of the gun.

My reference to Dean was his post after having had pictures in hand.

The only reference to the characters stamped on the water table that I can find in TPS is in the right column on page 334; "The water table of the AA grade guns will also show the number "7," and on hammerless guns, the "AAH" stamp."

Default AAH Guns

The early AAH guns were stamped 7 above the serial number and an A below the serial number as seen on gun number 127831 on pages 328-9 of TPS. One may need a magnifying glass to see it on the water table on page 338 lower right. Later on (no exact date determined) Parker started using the AAH stamping. 😊

Oh my what a crying shame and a AA to boot. A worthy restoration project.

Yes I know... I'd like to find out why it was nickle plated but it will get removed soon. It's in good hands. Maybe a research letter will reveal some history behind it. Maybe some rich cowboys wife wanted it shiny so he nickle plated it...
