No Brian, those barrels are later than the Parker made barrels.

Wait for it... at 7:00 PM I'll reveal it.

Nobody could have known without being familiar with the gun.

Oops... sorry I'm late, I was cooking.

So, Parker 39135 is unique because it is the only known Parker Bros. shotgun to have an experimental butt safety installed.

When mounted the safety button in the butt is depressed and a spring-loaded steel rod running forward through the stock and grip to actuate a detent that interrupts the sears. It is really quite simple and seems to work perfectly every time.
This gun had been placed at the Meriden Historical Society on display with several other Parker guns about 14 or 15 years ago but were pulled out when the decision was made by the BOD to liquidate some of the items in the PGCA Collection... which was getting a bit too dispersed and out of control.

In any case, along with several other PGCA guns, and those that were donated by Austin Hogan to the PGCA, they came to me to be returned to a more central PGCA location. They left my possession years ago but not before I disassembled this gun to see how it worked and photograph it.

Here are the pictures I took.
