I'll get pictures up soon. Best I can tell I have a dollar grade top lever, with rebound hammers, laminated steel barrels, made in 1881. It was gifted by my in-laws. It was passed down in my wife's family through at least three generations that we know of.

Saw that. I have to work that week end but I may be able to make it on 4/25. I'm not far from Deep River Sporting Clays

Hey Garrett, welcome to the PGCA. If youíre going to be in Sanford for the Southern, you should come join us on the 26th for our Annual Meeting. Links to the event and tickets are pinned in the General Discussions forum. Hope to meet you.

An 1881 graded Parker with Laminated Steel barrels may just have the very uncommon 'Parker made' Laminated Steel barrels that they produced only in 1877, '78 and 1879. I have three such guns and my favorite is a 16 gauge D grade with original 27" Laminated barrels.

We sure would like to see pictures... especially for the many of us who won't be able to get to the Southern this year.
Definitely show us sharp clear pics of the barrel flats where the barrel steel marking is stamped.
