By the later Parker catalogs, standard stock measurements are 14 to 14 1/4" LOP from the forward trigger and 2 1/2 to 2 3/4" DAH. Early Parkers often had drops approaching 3" . Waterfowl specific guns had more drop.

As recommended above, use slip on pads to increase LOP. It is rare that a factory Parker would have an LOP over 14 1/4" .

Thanks to all the PGCA members who've taken the time to fill in the background on LOP issues. I was pretty sure it'd be a long shot to find a 15" factory LOP, and that's been confirmed - but it's not a reason not to ask, or look. I'm determined not to do anything permanent to change the stock length on my current gun, and I may give the slip on pad a try. I'm using this GHE 16 g to indulge a longtime flirtation with Parkers, and to get reacquainted with handling a shotgun (20 year absence). The regimen is to develop some good habits with clays, but I plan to work up to some Montana upland game birds. A journey, in other words.

Thanks again for the time and trouble, and please keep me in mind if you stumble across that 15" LOP 16 g. SxS that just may be out there. - Cheers.

There out there....lurking in the bushes. Don't give up the quest, that's where most of the fun is anyway

Edwin Hedderly's DHEs were ordered at 15 1/2 inch length-of-pull in 1911, then when he moved up to A1 Specials he went to 15 5/8 inch.
