Default Parker reproduction Barrel marking..

I have just seen a Parker Reproduction barrel marked, Parker Gun Works / overload proved I have not seen this before and thought this was a Remington era marking or possibly used on the Galazan barrels made for retrofitting to reproduction guns. Can anyone shed some light on this for me Thanks & Best, Paul

Default Parker Gun Works

Good Morning, I saw a 410 barrel that had Parker Gun Works stamped on the bottom. It Is NOT a Parker Reproduction Barrel that is stamped like that. I am not sure who made them. Post a photo of the barrel in question. Thanks

And HERE is the stamp that marked them. And the engineering drawing for the stamp dated 1989.

This is a Remington stamp. Made for when they intended to start making Parkers again in the late 80s.

My guess is that these barrels were made by remington at that time and later fitted to a repro as an extra set of barrels. And serial numbered as such.

Thanks Brian, It looks like you found the interesting link to the barrels. Someone (Remington) was serious about reproducing the gun to go to that much work. I would think beyond the prototype stages. I remember when Remington was going to build new Parker guns but they stopped pre production because of costs vs revenue as I understand it. I think it is neat that you have the stamp and engineering drawing certainly a collectors set in its own right. I really wish I could have that gun and barrel set in hand to examine. ...Yes, part of a 28 - 410 00 frame set. Best,Paul

Remington advertised them in the 1988 catalog. And took orders/deposits on them. But they were never filled and they were eventually canceled/refunded. I believe only a couple guns were actually built. Parts were made. Kohler was contracted to make the frames and and other various parts. Others would know more about the actual details of it all. Hell, I was in Elementary school at the time! Don't tell anyone.

I am pretty sure that the gun used for the catalog and advertising was just a refinished original gun done by the custom shop.

This stamp and drawing came from a retiree of Remington


I too would be interested to see those barrels posted about in more detail.

Paul, are there other stampings elsewhere on this set of barrels besides on the barrel flats and how long are the barrels?

The catalog Parker gun in 1988 belonged to Ritchie Wingle. It was a Remington era AHE. Kolar Arms did supply the parts for the 1988 gun. Wooden boxes of these parts were stored in the Remington Archives a decade later, unused except for a small number of guns. The parts were made in quantity, but not the barrels or the wood, as far as I know. Reagent Chemical, Tony Galazan, and Merkel all made .410 barrels for the Repro, all different in minor details. I don't know who made Paul's barrels.

Here's a DHE 28/.410 set. The .410 bbls. also have the Parker Gun Works proof stamp, the 28-ga. set has the customarily seen Parker Reproduction stampings. This gun is bone charcoal casecolored and is in a case with a non-original trade label. When was the last time you saw a 28-ga. Parker Repro w/28" bbls. factory choked IC/M?
