Default 1st Parker!.....Thanks to JLoew!

2 months ago I didn't know what a Parker was until one of my best friends opened his safe and showed me his restored original Parker 20ga. He then pulled out a repro A-1 Special which matched (to my untrained eye) the original. I was immediately bitten by the Parker bug which sent me down a rabbit hole leading me here to the Parker Forums. I think I read every page learning all I could soak in about Parkers and their history.

Once I felt nervously confident enough to buy, I posted a WTB for an A-1 Repro. The first response was from JLoew. I ignored it for a week, did I mention I was nervous? Finally my wife insisted I give him a call, saying, see what he has to say. So i did and from the onset of that call I knew I could trust this guy whom I had never met outside of a forum PM. Over the next several days we struck a deal and Josh followed thru exactly as he said he would and I picked it up at my FFL a few days latter.

Thanks Josh! The gun is all you said it was and more!

apologies, the pics are from my cell

I remember your first post. You have done well!

I would put my ultimate faith in Josh’s expertise.

Wow, a two barrel A-1 Special! That's like getting a 911 Porsche for your first car.

Greg, talk about jumping into the deep end of the pool!!! Not sure where you go from here considering your start, but I am sure Josh can get you there. Very nice gun!
