Default Is This Real

While I'm sure these are real VHE-Grade barrels --

What is the year of manufacture? I would say not factory. The very few 3” Parker’s I’ve seen the stamp was on both sides of the lug. Stamp doesn’t look right either.

IF something like that was factory, it would be a single stamp, not individual stamps that anyone could get out of a stamp set.

No Remington repair codes, so no point in comparing these 3" stamps with stamps on Remington guns. Is there a PGCA letter on this gun?

It is a gun that is for sale in Montana, and a poster on another board inquired about it. I don't have the serial number, but in that it doesn't have the PARKER BROS. OVERLOAD PROVED stamps it is from before about 1926.

That would be my opinion unless Dave throws us another bone. I have early (before overload stamps) Parkers that have long chambers that have are documented by PGCA letters. None of these guns have stamps that indicate chamber length.
