Default Another New guy with questions

Greetings:
I'm new to this forum, or any other forum, so I hope I don't make too many newbie mistakes.

I build Hot Rods, Kustoms, and bikes. Not really a gun guy per say, and just inherited my gram-pa's old Parker.
Looking to get a value.

It's a VH serial number 178106 with a 32" barrel.
I call it the Jed Clampett special.

I'll post another thread with pics and a formal request for info, as it seems this string is for introductions.

Thanks for having me

Welcome Craig!

You appear to have a much worn VH. VH 12 gauges are probably the most common Parker out there. Yours has 32" barrels and longer barrels are a plus these days. Other folks on here can tell you more.

Thanks for the replies.
I didn't have any reason to believe it was anything special,
mostly, I just wanted to make sure before I "modified" it for home protection.

Please DONT modify for home protection. There are plenty of inexpensive Remington 870s and Mossberg 500s for that. And if an intruder does not recognize the distinct sound of “racking” a pump gun, then let the fun begin. That said, a PARKER shotgun of and configuration and grade will never be made again and they are a big part of American made classic sporting Arms. Clean the old girl up and have it checked out by a qualified double gun smith. Then decide on its fate. A family gun is a cherished possession.

Sorry, did not mean to offend.
I have no children to hand this down to.
Once I know the rough value, I'll put it on Gun Broker and use the money to buy something more appropriate.

I'll post the value request now.
Do I let folks know when it's on Gun Broker or is that not allowed.
Again, I do not mean to cause any issues.

Thanks,
Craig

No issues. Post some pertinent pictures here and some will give an opinion as to value to use as a guide line.
