Default Parker Repro Rights

Q. Who owns the rights to Parker Reproduction? The Skeuse family? CSMC?

I don’t remember CSMC ever having anything to do with Parker Reproduction production or re-production.

Dean, my guess would be that the Skeuse family retains the rights. A friend asked me if I knew and I dont. Just my best guess

You should shoot a PM to Richard Skeuse.

Dean, Tony's $50,000 28 gauge is, in so many words, a Parker Repro. It's been a while since I read about it. What's the deal?

Bill, CSMC’s $50k AAHE 28 was manufactured under Remington’s license, not the Skeuse/Winchester license.

How many Parkers did Remington produce when they tried to produce them in the 1970's? Did they actually do them or were they farmed out to someone like DelGrego? The sales brochure I have quotes a price of something like $12,000

John, just a handful were made. Probably a half-dozen or so, unless I miss my guess. Remington presented a few to retiring executives. Art Wheaton donated his to the NRA Museum and it and another are on display in the Robert Peterson collection room.

Dean - Thanks. Any guess on who actually made them?

I'm quite sure Remington made them. From what I've seen they had the same forend release that the prototype Trojan Skeet guns had, in other words, like the Remington 32.
