Default My duBray-Connected Parker

After reading Steve Cambria’s excellent article in the DGJ I thought I’d post some information about my Grade 3 10 gauge ordered by Mr duBray in 1886 while he was stationed in Walla Walla. I found it at the 2018 Southern at a vendor set up next to the Fox Collectors. I had no idea it was a duBray gun until I received Chucks letter, posted here. What caught my eye was the rib. It isn’t a matted rib like I’m used to seeing on Parkers, it’s something else. I’ve shown this gun to a number of Parker collectors and no one has ever seen this type of file-cut rib on a Parker. The letter confirms this with the notation referencing “chase rib” in the letter. If anyone has seen this type of rib matting I’d like to hear from you. Thanks
