Is there any way of knowing how many grade 2 10 gauge lifters with hammers were made?

Yes, you can tabulate an approximate a total from the grade tables at the end of each grade chapter in The Parker Story.

There were a lot of them made… many thousands.

After re-reading your question, I see that you asked specifically for Grade-2 10 gauge Lifters and in my previous reply I suggested "many thousands" but in Grade-2 10 gauge Lifters I count only about 1,854 or so.

Did the gunsmith merely look at the bores?

It would be vital for the bores also to be measured for minimum wall thickness to determine if the gun were safe to shoot.

True Russell, I am always skeptical of “shiny” or “minty” bores in someone’s description of a gun. True, they may have never been touched… or they may have been honed to get rid of pitting, then polished. I prefer to know the actual wall thickness.

Just thinking out loud here, but what about having Briley's make up a set of 20 gauge tubes for these early 10s?

I got my 10 gauge back from the gunsmith and he gave the thumbs up to be able shoot it. Anyone know where a guy might be able to find shells suitable for old guns like this? RST isnt making 10 gauge anymore.
