Default 16 Ga Lifter revisited

I was so impressed with the 16 gauge 0-frame Lifter that Jeff Kuss displayed for us I thought it would be acceptable to display mine - a 16 Gauge $140 Grade (Grade 3) Lifter No. 18719 made with 27-inch Parker-made Laminated-3 barrels on the lightened 0-frame, shipped in August of 1880..... and I didn't want to mess up Jeff's thread so I started this one.

The gun was returned in October of 1880 to "put on a rubber butt" and this was done and engraved and checkered to resemble a skeleton steel butt plate - even the screw heads were checkered over to match the checkering done on the hard rubber butt plate.

I cast the winning bid in the October 2015 Julia auction.

No, just a 28" 12 gauge No. 14056 $140 Grade (Grade 3) with Parker made Laminated barrels.

Needs a little work though.

Dean, Thanks for posting those pictures...that is an amazing 16 gauge lifter! Those barrels are beautiful...the whole gun is beautiful. That is a nice and very rare lifter! Is the crack in the wrist the only big issue?

I really like that gun. I had done a search for 16 gauge lifters not too long ago and was wondering why I wasn't seeing too many and then looked in the Parker Story and noticed how rare they were. Was it something like 79 lifters total in 16 gauge? I am sure there were some not recorded but still, you just don't see them that often.
