"The One with the Tape" as the boys know it as it was used on the first duck hunts each of them went on. A Quality 2 10 gauge with 32 inch barrels.

Shawn that is a nice lifter and great pictures. I have a lifter just 6 numbers earlier than yours, mine is #3492. It is the second picture in my first post in this thread. In a case made by PGCA member Edgar Spencer.

1881 Quality E 10 ga with Parker laminated steel barrels. Only fault is the barrels are cut from 30 to 28 1/4 with most of the choke gone. Still throws a killing pattern with Bismuth 2's at 40 yds. No pass shooting with this one.

Beautiful gun! I wondered if it was built or sold in 1881. I have an 1880 grade 3 in the same spec. Your gun has the later fore end iron but the serial number would place it as an 1878 action. Wondered if you had recieved a letter and it was actually built and shipped in 1881 on a frame in stock? My 1880 has a serial number in the 18000 range.

A fair number of Parkers that originally had the keyed forend were returned for the new Deely style to be installed.

That's interesting Dean. I looked in the serialization book and there are huge gaps around the time of that number, including 13180 to 13261. You may be right in that it may have been returned for the upgrade shortly after purchase.
