Default Looking for info on my Lifter

I purchased this Lifter in a multi gun deal. Itís been messed with but I figured it could be a shooter or a parts gun at worst.
I am posting pictures and appreciate comments. Butt stock is cracked but could be repaired.
The things that stand out are. The Crescent butt plate seems deeper than most Parkerís I have seen. At some point it was converted to a selectable single trigger. Finally the rib has been drilled in multiple places. Why? Who knows?

A letter might address the deeply curved butt contour.

That's too bad Phil.

It's an enigma!

Any information on the trigger, crescent butt, rib and and the markings is greatly appreciated since there is little information available in the records.

That is a very neat gun! The buttplate looks to be original to me, it is of the proper style for the gun, just a lot more curved.
And though the single trigger is obviously a much latter addition. It is very rare to see a single triggered hammer gun, let alone a lifter.

Other than the damaged to the stock head, it looks to be in great condition.

I just realized I didnít post a picture of the rib. Barrels ring but why the screws along the rib?

I have never seen a single trigger on a lifter. Has anyone?
