Default Grade two lifter hammer gun

I am looking for any additional information that could be shared about this gun serial number 38854. I do not own it. It is in the serial number book and is as listed, Grade 2, pistol grip, 10 ga., 32". The barrels are uncut and remain choked full/full and show minimal pitting and are dent free. The only problems I see with this gun is it has no buttplate, but the wood is undamaged and the barrels need to be put back on face. The seller is asking $1,500.00. What would be an approximate cost to put the barrels back on face and is this a reasonable price for a lifter hammer gun in 10 ga. with 32" barrels? Thank you in advance for any replies.
- Brett

I think the asking price is fair.

If you would like to have the barrels refinished I would recommend Breck Gorman.

I will shoot you an opinion PM about tightening the barrels.

That is a nice one and has the check hook barrels(which are nice on a lifter).

A checkhook lifter. This is outside of the normal transition period from Lifter to top action. Which was in the 25,000-26,000 area. So this was a gun that a customer specifically requested a lifter action when Parker was well into making top action guns.

Right Brian and I've only been aware of a few such guns... like that I could count on one hand.

To refinish the barrels and put barrels back on face, probably $500-650. Plus new butt plate. Do you load for a 10? If not, look for a 12. Ten gauge is real expensive to shoot now if you don’t reload.

As strictly a hunting gun with the occasional clays game, I personally wouldn’t worry too much about the cost of ammo. But that’s just me.

If for some totally irrational reason you decide to pass on this gun, would you give me the seller's info? I'd like dibs. Really nice looking long range goose gun.

At the moment it's not inexpensive to load for until THE NEW Remington decides to make SP-10 wads again , and even after that they'll most likely price them over the top .
