Default Poulin hammer gun

The pictures weren’t that great. Is there any better ones anywhere, thought I could see a pointer on left. Not that I’m going to buy it but I would like to admire it. C

So, no interest in a high grade gun. Things have changed. Poulin auction sight.

I have noticed myself that we can get pages of discussion about gun oil and old movies, but discussions related to nice Parkers seem to garner not so much interest. There are several nice guns coming to market but I haven't seen any discussions on them. Maybe someone smarter than me can tell us why that is.

I just finished looking at them Calvin - They have some really good Parkers. The BH really caught my eye! It has the 5-iron crolle Damascus barrels and is a very desirable Parker.

The high-grade (6?) hammer gun is exceptionally nice too - does it have a crack through the wrist? Looks like it but even if so, those can be invisibly repaired stronger than original.

And then there's the Parker hammer Trap gun that's in really nice original(?) condition that is super nice.

I’m going to have to look again all I seen was the 6? Hammer and a Trojan. Glad you mentioned the others always fun to look.

The Grade 6 hammer gun is nice I handled it at the VC but the barrels have been cut.

I am interested...are these up on Poulin's website? I couldn't find them, though I might not have been looking hard enough.

Yes Jay, you could even drive up a d examine them at the auction house though you may need to call ahead to request a viewing appointment.

I looked them over, too. Thanks for bringing them to our attention. I'm curious to see how high the hammer gun with the trap butt plate goes. The vagaries of collecting are always interesting. I did not see a gun that I wanted...thank goodness!
