Default The Lost and Found List

This is a thread in which you can post any serial numbered items that you have found or that you have lost to your Parkers.
For example, post here a set of orphaned barrels that are in your collection or the missing set of Damascus barrels that should have come with that DHE that you found out about when you got your PGCA letter.
Be sure to separate the serial number by at least one space on each side so that it is searchable.

Thats why they are listed here.
They are orphans.
This is the place to list orphans.

The first weak point of this idea: for every orphaned set of barrels, there is a buyer who doesn't own the other half of the gun. If your barrels are for sale, let us know. If they are not for sale except to the owner of the rest of the gun, let us know also.

Default 30 inch barrels

I am looking for a set of barrels from my C grade live bird gun. The number is 128134. The serialization lists them as Titanic but my letter says Damascus. It would really make me happy to find them.

Point taken
But if i just wanted to sell them i could have done that 20 years ago and many times in between my acquisition. I have gotten PMs already trying to buy them.
If they guy who owned your missing barrels had sold them to a chop shop, you would not have the happy reunion you just had???
If they were for sale I would have listed them in the For Sale section.

Great idea for starting a thread to match up orphan parts. I'll post serial numbers to some skeleton steel butt plates, and if you have the matching gun that it was made for I'll trade it to you for one of like grade and condition. If your Parker letters from Canada or the Minnesota/Dakotas area you might want to check your serial number, your odds are better. These came off grades D to B. I just want to be clear, these aren't for sale.
115,298
168,702
134,431
130,869
67,048
153,280

I also have one with 2 serial numbers, 35,177 and 88,761. That one stays though. It is off a B grade that was originally sold to an American pro shooter that shot under the name of Robin Hood. I bought a 0 frame 16 GH with the Robin Hood trigger guard out of Ontario, and it was about a year before I realized I had already picked up the SSBP off the same gun from western Canada. The letter says the buyer supplied the butt plate for his new purchase.

I've got a few more around here somewhere. If they turn up I'll post the serial numbers.
