Default New to the forum and Parker ownership

Hi All,
I own Parker S/N 93850. Wondering if there will be Parker representation or displays at either the Tacoma, WA Gun Show on Dec. 3-4, 2022 or the Puyallup, WA Gun Show on Dec. 10-11, 2022.
Thanks!

Welcome Ned.

Is there a story about your Parker Bros. Vulcan?

I am in Texas, but if I were in the area, it would have been a pleasure to meet you at one of those events.

John

Hi Ned and welcome to the PGCA. To my knowledge there will be no planned or organized events are displayed at either of those shows. There may be some members there however.

I'm sure there's a story about this shotgun but I know only a bit of it. The documentation received from Parker research indicates it was completed on January 23, 1899. I was given this shotgun by my friend's widow who was given the gun by his previous father-in-law from the San Diego area. So, there's a huge gap in it's history from 1899 to 2020.
The gun is in pretty good shape, most of the blueing is gone but its nice and tight. I haven't shot it yet.

Feel free to post pictures here if youd like. Almost all of us do if we can.

You might get interesting commentary from others about the current condition and configuration.

Its entirely possible, depending on what youre looking at, maybe the blueing is in good shape. Generally on a Vulcan grade, the barrels, trigger guard and triggers are blued. The receiver was not blued. The better the gun was taken care of, then more of those colors from the case hardening process are going to show on the receiver.
