Default New Addition - First hammer gun

I couldn't leave this behind----
The gun has little metal finish left, and the stocks are dark from too much oil, but it is in very good condition. Not beat as so many of these old guns are.
It matches the book, 30" barrels, capped stock, and it has decent dimensions which fit me. Tight on face with no joint wobble, even open! It appears the barrels may have been honed as they are on the shiney side, but I am not sure, and they provide good wall thickness, with the thinest at .22 about 10" back from the muzzle on the right barrel. Chokes at tight mod and IC. At 7#8oz. it feels lively! Out to try it on a few clays, with some RSTs.

And.... you may notice a 6 or 9 next to the frame size of 2, very small!!!! Do we have any idea what that was for?

I wouldn't have been able to walk away from that one either. Very nice! It does seem light for a 2 frame. Though I know there are light and heavy versions of each frame size.

If this is your first hammer gun you will love shooting it. In addition to using RSTs, try some brass black powder shells too. These hammer guns are just too much fun

Nice one Keavin! You’re going to have a lot of fun shooting and hunting with that one.

Caution! Shooting external hammer guns can be addictive.

Enjoy that nice gun.

Beautiful old gun. The chokes should work well on upland birds, and sporting clays.

Kevin, great purchase. Beautiful Parker. I have a very similar gun in an under lifter. I’ve hunt and shoot clays with it. Lots of fun. Enjoy.

Congratulations on a nice honest gun. I love my hammer guns on the clays course and the quail fields.

Does the right lock work? Looks like the front pin for the main spring is missing.
