Default Does Anyone Know Why Parker 39135 Is Special?

Here are some pictures of this special Grade-1 T/A hammer gun with Laminated Steel barrels.

It is the only Parker ever made (that we know of) with this unique feature.

The answer will come later this evening.

I hope not.... I didn't mean to give it away so soon.


Just double checked - there's nothing in the pictures that would reveal it.

Something to do with barrel length or gauge is my hunch

I see a couple of unusual things. The barrel material not stamped on the top rib? The grade numeral 1 stamped above the serial number on the watertable?

We’re the tubes supplied by the owner to Parker for use on the ordered gun? It looks like in the next to last picture that the bottom rib is short of the end and the extractor rod area is is milled out

That was Legh Higgins' gun - A PH 16 with owner supplied Laminated Steel barrels.
