Undamaged, big sigh of relief. Unfooled with, whew! Surprisingly good condition considering it was a Frontier gun. Pictures talk better than me. Oh, tight as a tick.

Fantastic Parker! - Does the letter address the hard rubber buttplate?

Chuck B. emailed the contents of the letter that you have seen in the previous thread. The actual letter may be here, haven’t checked the mailbox.
The hard rubber buttplate looks factory fitted to me, the engraved screws are timed correctly also. The particular dog on the plate looks period correct and there is considerable wear at the top, consistent with the rest of the gun. The letter specifies LOP at 14-1/2”, that’s exactly what it measures.
The fit is flawless but it is what it is.

Thereís one irrefutable fact , regardless of whether the buttplate on the gun is or isnít correct they darn sure arenít making anymore 4 frame Parkerís !

Itís the luck of the draw, but my other Quality 2 10 gauge Lifter was ordered with the skeleton buttplate. There are many desirable attributes encompassing this outfit, the heart of any Parker are the bores. I just mopped them with Hoppeís and followed with oil, the bores are what impress me the most. Smooth sailing!
Chambers measured 3Ē as the letter specified.

“Laminated”, I like the pattern. The signature Parker “mushroom” beads. Note the wall thickness at the muzzle on the Damascus set, .091 .260 at the breech. No wonder it’s over 11 pounds.
