Thanks Brian,

Since the existing stock was not original, I wanted to make it true to what a Grade 3 would look like.

The letter stated that it would have had a skeleton butt plate, so we added that and I also copied the Grade 3 Ball grip from the 12 that I currently have.
Now this gun I donít believe had a completely checkered ball grip from new, but I just really admire the fully checkered Parker ball grip.

The reason I donít think this originally had the fully checkered ball grip, I had the good fortune of connecting with a fellow member who has the consecutive serial number to this gun which is also a 16 Lifter. These 2 16 gauge lifters were ordered by the same gentleman in 1879, and the letter shows they were pretty much ordered as identical guns.
The replacement stock dimensions had a fair amount of drop, but I shot it fairly well surprisingly. I did bring the new stock dimensions closer to some of the other lifters I currently use.

That's beautiful Stan! There is nothing better than a lifter that takes yellow shells

shucks Stan, you blocked off your score--I know it would be better than mine. What a beauty. I did go 1 for 1 on a big turkey this morning, pictures to follow on another thread. See you at Hausmann's

Dean,

This is my first Parker with Laminated Parker barrels, they are quite pretty, but of course I’m biased.

I’m not so sure you wouldn’t have topped my score Harold, I really was struggling to adjust to too many different guns or that is my excuse

Yes Jay, you’re correct on the yellow shell guns, I hope we can shoot them together at Hausmans.

We had great fun, many beautiful guns and I was able to put faces to names, met a number of fellow Parker members.

Hope to see everyone at Hausmans,

Stan

Phil Carr, what can you tell us about the Baltimore Arms Co. gun in the background in your last picture?

Hello and good morning Stan, I am new to this and just purchased a 32" 10gauge Damascus Parker Brothers shotgun 1880 date. Where can I get a new stock for it?
