Good morning Saturday. A few comments from The Parker Story.

Rib extensions were added in 1883 according to TPS. None of the lifter action guns had rib extensions even though made until the early 1900's , and top action hammer guns had them beginning in 1883. All hammerless had them unless one of the few requested without, or a later Trojan. Matting began in late 1885.

On some of the rib extensions, the post connecting the extension to the bottom rib is visible through the matting. One of the following examples is interesting for the engraver's use of the fixation post as part of an engraved flower on a top action hammer gun built in the gap between 1883 and late 1885.

I must admit of all the intricate and ornate features of the Parker shotgun I never really paid much attention to the variety shown in this thread. Thanks again to Bruce for helping us focus on all aspects of the Parker Gun.

You want me to point the grouse at the grouse???

Remember the Parker author who used to dismiss these as "wallhangers" and contend that they held little interest for him?

Bruce. Do not know the author but foolish ignorance can be found almost everywhere. Photos such as these would be nice "wallhangers" in my home office. The grouse appears to sense danger so leave him alone. He could flush and not be seen again. Thanks for sharing, Bob
