Thanks Keith! I had the 16 freshened up last year and this photo reminds me the 12 needs attention too. The 12 is Harry's go-to Parker for double gun events

I had never noticed before that the top tang of your 2-frame(?) 12 is another half again as wide as your 0-frame 16. Can you measure them and let us know?

And how close are the in serial number?

Are those steel barrels on your 16, Mills?

Not sure what is going on. It came to me that way.

FWIW both guns handle a bit heavy for their frame sizes

Finally found my 10 ga hammer gun #3 frame. It will not open if the right hammer is cocked. The serial number is 55,2XX.

Just happened upon an article in a an early Double Gun Journal which made me remeber this thread so I wanted to mention it. Written by Charlie Price for the Volume Four Issue 4 edition entitled "The Parker Fish-Tail Top Lever". It discusses a lot of the itms brought up in thisthread, but also touches on some other points. Some of them are: the order book in mid-1884 had a not to "Make hooked top lever so gun will cock when open"; Many early top lever hammer guns before the fishtail had the lever offset to the left; and there is a picture of a 7 frame 8 gauge with a fishtail that will cock while open, but if the gun is cocked when closed, the gun will not open when cocked.

It's a pretty interesting article if interested in the subject and worth a look if you have the Issue available.
