Default New to the Parker World.

I am a proud owner of 3 of the 8 top hammer guns that was all order for 8 Meacham Arms Set. A long time collector has located 3 of them and now passing them on to me. I would like to see if anyone would know anything more about these particular guns and maybe see if any one else has another one. The serial numbers that I have are 31839, 31840, 31842. The guns are from 1883. All have 32 inch barrels in very good shape. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Yes. These guns have been discussed on and off over the years.
I found the third of the 8 (31841) in a trailer home in upstate NY and restored it a few years ago. And passed it along. That gun was actually signed by the engraver gough. Your 3 are not signed. I know of at least 2 other ones still exist. If you search that serial number on this board you will find the info on it.

They were all originally 4 frame guns.
