Default Parker Price List of Gun Repairs, 1926

I'm not sure if this is common, but I came across it and thought it was very interesting. Has anyone else posted this before? It is the Parker Price List of Gun Repairs from December 1, 1926. I can see why the high grades were often seen with VH grade replacement barrels with those prices. Fitting automatic ejectors on finished guns was pretty expensive too, but an A 1 Special stock for $75 sounds like a bargain.

Maybe I should have posted this in the Parker Paper forum. If it should be there would you please move it, John D? Thank you.

Hmmm... fitting swivels, including straps, $6.00... very interesting.

Neat find Bob.
Hunter Arms' charge for replacement barrels was 1/2 of the list price of the corresponding grade gun, and Parker's charge was similar; from the 1929 Price List:
AHE $400 - barrel & FE $185
BHE $300 - $140
CHE $215 - $115
GHE $115 - $66

"Rebrowning" was offered but it is assumed that the barrels were finished in "black & white" as done originally
