Default Letter for 31436 D TL Hammer from Morphy's

Here is the letter on the gun nothing special. Since it was made in 1883 the gun should incorporate all of the 1882 design changes, dolls head, large extractors, check hook, plunger firing pins. It does have shootable dimensions for me and still weights 10lbs 4 ozs. Fingers crossed I can make it into a shooter. I get as excited about buying one of these old war horse guns as I do high condition high grade guns.

Glad someone here picked that one up , I had thought of bidding on it but I new a Parker collector wasnt going to let a #4 frame 10 ga slip by that easily haha . Hope to hear how the bores turn out , they didnt really give much description on them . Ive found a similar one to that but in higher condition however it probably cost x5 as much also . I have seen probably more #2 frame 10 gauges than #4s . Any idea on the barrel thickness at the breech ? They look pretty beefy .

Thanks Milton. Good buy in my opinion if it's a shooter. Will report back when I have the gun in hand.

I hope it is a shooter , the large frame parkers are my favorite doubles to read about . Fingers crossed you can get it back into field conditions . Ive read that grade 3 top actions are sought after and it being a #4 frame makes it that much more interesting to me .

There was also a 10lb 10ga PH I think it was in that same auction . Wonder if anyone here got it as well .

Tell us the item number, Milton. I liked several Parkers in that sale, but I have something in the mail now and don't need another right now. I assume Craig's new Grade 3 is a three lug with doll's head.

It was this one https://auctions.morphyauctions.com/...ntoryid=467953

Looked like a nice heavy hammerless 10 gauge , most hammerless 10s I see are in the 9lb range . It was a GH , dont know why I thought it was a PH .

I threw a bid or two after that GH as well , but I already have three EH’s and a GH 10 .

I bid on the PH as well or was it an NH that was supposed to be 10 pounds . Went for $500-550 if memory serves . The auction also stated it had a loose hinge pin and that kinda turned me off .

Ive debated a hammerless 10 ga Parker but I'm saving money back for a lifter. I have seen quite a few nice 10 ga hammerless guns mostly PHs it seems .
