I think a lot of high end parker's get handed down. I had two handed down to me both broken a Trojen 12 gauge and a AHE 28 both with broken stocks. I still haven't been able to get the 28 fixed. That's a story for another thread.

I will get on that research letter. But all of you parker admirers would you restore the gun? And than what? I would love to use it a little, but wouldnt want to hurt it.

I have a Grade 7 Skeleton Steel Buttplate in very nice condition that I will part with for your gun for tha price I paid for it... with the stipulation that your gun will have been restored to the point that it awaits the fitting of a SSBP.

It came from a Grade 7 about two or three years younger than yours. It was in somebody's "Old Gun Parts" drawer until I was lucky enough to buy it in May this year.

Does an insert fit into the space that will still be there? I cant wait to restore it but it may be some years from now, im too young to have that sort of capital. Would you use it if you had restored it or before restoring it? And is there a temporary buttpad so i could shoot it?

P.S. I think the barrel is 29 inch, is it supposed to be 30?

The wood in the 'space' would have been checkered as in this next picture. Your skeleton steel buttplate was removed and a rubber recoil pad was installed. The rubber is gone but the plastic or hard rubber base plate of the pad is still there. There is a remote chance that the checkering is still under that base plate but I doubt it.

As long as the condition of the barrels are safe to shoot and they are not 'off face' of the frame I would think it is safe to shoot.

Stephen,

Welcome to the Parker Gun Collectors Association and the Parker Forum. You have a fantastic family heirloom. You should consider joining the PGCA along with ordering a research letter on your gun. The membership will be well worth the $40 and the cost of research letters is lower for members.

http://parkerguns.org/forums/payments.php

Good luck and I do hope you will consider joining.

Steven,
I'm not sure you received an answer to your question. The serialization book lists this gun with 30" barrels and a straight grip stock. The barrels have been cut but the pistol grip stock looks original and is most likely an error in the book. A PGCA letter might show a factory replacement stock and perhaps the barrel trimming.

I plan on joining today, and also sending the letter for the research letter. The full restoration will probably have to wait untill im out of collage, my dad doesnt take as much of interest in the gun. But did anyone know someone capable of doing the work around in florida?
