Ed Muderlak published books that a more affordable than "The Parker Story" and address your questions a bit more to the point than any other books. The one that comes to mind is "Parker Guns____"

This is an 1881 Lifter Parker 10 gauge with Twist Steel barrels. I shoot it regularly with nitro powders. Note the button in front of the trigger guard bow. When pushed up the gun opens. I wish all parkers had retained this method of opening.

I'm looking for the right words. Is Parker Porn too strong?

Harry you just had to show that gun didn’t you. You know how I lust for her. I have tried everything I know to get that beauty away from you including offering myself for your adoption. Gents if you have never laid eyes on this gun in person you are a lucky man because once seen - never forgotten. Victor you would be worse smitten than me.

That's gorgeous. Since I haven't handled one, the lifter mechanism looks cumbersome and tough to use. I imagine that's what I said to myself when I saw a photo of a Leica M2 many years ago. Never took a second look. Then someone handed one to me. Game over, I own one now. Do NOT hand me that gun! I'm going to try to get to the SxS events at Hausmann's and Rock Mountain this year. Both within 60 minutes of my house. I would assume I'd meet someone from this board at those events??

The Lifter is probably the least cumbersome systems for opening a shotgun. Trust me on this. On upland birds, I like to walk up on a point with hammers cocked, action open. On the flush, simply closing the action gives me two shots pronto! Anyone who has done much upland hunting with hammer guns knows about top lever/right hammer interference. Of course the fishtail top lever was one solution, the Underlifter was the other.
The move from trigger to action release is so natural, you will wonder why they ever went to a top lever.

In short yes. Either place throw a rock and you are likely to hit someone that posts on this board. Warning, once you expose yourself to this environment the slope of the grade may require ropes. Tips, befriend yourself to the dapper gentleman driving the JD Gator. The guy hollering Grace, follow him. He's going to either stumble on to a super 28ga., or a circle of Parker people.
Don't bet a 28ga. round with the guy who names his dogs things like Parker and Fox.
