I have one and owned another for a short time, they aren't common.

I would not mind having one or two more 3 frame 12 gauges.

I don’t find the 2 frame 10’s to be much different from the 3 frames.

I have a 2 frame EH that left the factory at 28” that’s a bit different and a Grade 1 (I think) top lever that if memory serves is a 2 frame with 26” and 30” barrels . They’re both kinda neat with the short barrels .

Parker Bros. did so many weird & wonderful things with all their various frame sizes with weight and balance. My 1889 2-frame 12-gauge weighs a fraction of an ounce over nine pounds with very straight barrels with virtually no swamp. My grandfather's 1890 3-frame 12-gauge weighs several ounces less with barrels that swamp in very quickly.

You guys have me hooked on the 3 frame 12. Keeping my eyes open for one.

I have a 32" 3 frame 12 lifter with check hook barrels that weighs 10 lbs. I would like to find a hammerless 12 3 frame as well.

Very nice sampling of 3 frame guns for sure Craig. I am especially partial to that 32" CHE. Very nice indeed.

There must of been a lot of them made in 12ga., because I have seen
a good number of them at gun shows over the years. Just a overly
''HEAVY'' gun that Duck hunters must have liked! And I also believe that the fellows
that ''Think'' their ''Rare'' are the fellows that Own Them!
