I actually handled one that walked into the VGC last weekend.


Weren't those Trojans with Twist barrels all sent to Japan or some place in the Far East?

Default Thanks Dean for the info on this Trojan

I ended up passing on this one at a local auction. I did physically look at the gun today, screws all looked good, barrels were well worn finish wise, stock was listed with small crack at the receiver. With premium and sale tax and paperwork fee I would have had a little over $700 in it and would still require a pad to fit me for LOP.
Still watching and learning.

Sometimes we take calculated risks on these old Parkers... especially with prices like $700 all included.

We wait a long time sometimes for a decent Parker to come along at $700.
