Maybe this has been done before, but I think these older Parkerís are unique and would enjoy seeing pictures of your Parker under/lifter. (Thatís probably not the correct term)
#1 Parker P Grade 8 Gauge 34"
#2 Parker Grade 4 10 Gauge 30"
#3 Parker Grade 3 12 Gauge 30"
#4 parker Grade 3 16 Gauge 30"

Craig,
Thanks for the comments, that was hastily taken photo in my not so orderly Gun Room, I had thought better when posting but posted it anyway.

I will take another picture without all the background:rolleyes:

Iíve sold 3 or 4 lifters and have only 2 left, a Grade 3 10/30Ē and a Grade 3 16/27Ē.

Parker 5949 is my Grade 3 10 gauge 30" Damascus with a really nice ball grip. A really good turkey gun which at 9+ lbs is just right for sitting.

Parker 14056 which I forgot to mention, also a Grade 3 12 gauge with 30" Parker-made Laminated Steel barrels. It had a ball grip but has been broken through the wrist and poorly repaired and I've never fired it. It was a gift from Austin Hogan in about 2009.

Parker 18719 is my Grade 3 16/27" with capped pistol grip and Parker-made Laminated Steel barrels refinished many years ago by Breck Gorman when he owned it (a fact that I just very recently learned from Breck.) It's a very nice handling grouse and woodcock gun that is so light I can carry it all day.

Dean,
Looking forward to the pictures, especially of the Grade 3 16,

my 16 will be soon going for a new butt stock, since it is not original, I might as well make it correct with a ball grip and skeleton butt plate.

However, I'm still having too much fun chasing pheasants with it, still amazed that a 7/8 oz load kills them so effectively.

Nice looking guns Stan. This is the only lifter I own, an 1881 12 gauge, 32".

Dean Romig 12-21-2021 09:06 AM

Wow - that’s a pretty G Randy!

Thanks Randy,

That one has some beautiful wood there, and a 32":)

I would like to keep expanding on these Lifters, perhaps a 10 & 12 with longer barrels, and perhaps a smaller gauge yet:whistle:

No that picture is fine ! All the ones on the back wall add to the character of the picture :cool:

Stan I would like to come across a few more myself, with long barrels. I enjoy shooting the one I have. I actually shoot skeet pretty well with it, for me anyway. It is a heavy gun at just under 8-13 oz with a MWT of .036 anywhere and that is 8.5" from the muzzle. What next, a lifter event :corn:
