1. You will get the most information on your Parker if we have both the Order Book and Stock Book.

  2. You will get the least amount of information if we only have the Remington IBM card.

  3. The Order Books start in January 1877 and end in November 1919.  If your gun was made either before 1877 and after 1919 you will not get information on who ordered the gun.  We do not have all the Order books so there are gaps in the records.

  4. The Stock Books start at S/N 1500 and end at S/N 238934.  Most of the information between S/N 1500 and 1799 is unreadable.  Starting at S/N 1800 we start to see more information including patterning information.  Frame sizes are not listed until S/N 213778.  Patterning information between 1800 and 213777 is hit and miss due to the way the original Stock book was copied.  There is no patterning information from S/N 213778 to the last S/N found in the Stock book which is S/N 238934.  We do not have all the Stock books so there are gaps in the records.

  5.  If we have only the IBM card, you will get the grade, gauge, barrel length, shipped date, and options such as single trigger, vent rib, and beavertail forend.  You may or may not get who ordered the gun.  If we have the name, itís just the name, no address.

  6. We also have some Work Order Tags (WOT).  If we have a Work Order Tag for your gun, that information will be added to the research letter.  You can purchase the tag.  Information on how to buy a WOT is found in the research letter link on the home page.
