Default Early 10ga. Back Action Lifter

Here is Parker #46…a 10 gauge with 30” laminated steel barrels. I am very excited about this one though there are a handful of condition issues. I do like the engraving on the gun, especially on the top tang and the trigger guard. The only serial numbers I could find are on the barrels and receiver. I didn’t see any serial numbers on the forend, wedge, or the one hammer I think is original. The locks are rebounding so it may have gone back to Parker at some point.

The big issue is the left barrel has a small hole 4” from the muzzle in addition to heavy pitting in both bores. The left hammer is a non-Parker replacement. I need a new lifter button screw and forend tip. Someone tried to re-fit the barrels, which are now loose.

One question I had was could the barrels be sleeved in 12 or 16 gauge? I would like to give this gun some attention/restoration and am interested in suggestions.

Thanks,

Jay

More pictures...also no proof marks or any marks for that matter on the barrels other than the serial number on the lug.

I wouldn't sleeve a gun that early. Maybe you could find some orphan barrels somewhere.

Despite the barrel condition, it looks to be in decent shape for a back action

Charlie, that is just what I wanted to hear! It would be fun to shoot this with some brass shells and light black powder loads.

I do think I have a set of 12 gauge barrels that could be fitted as well.

I love those straight stocks on any of these old doubles.

Check with Briley's to see if they can fit some 20 gauge tubes to your bbls.

I bid early on in the auction. I e-mailed the guy for some more pictures and questioned him on barrel condition. He replied the barrels had a couple rough spots but were otherwise nice. Never saw any more pictures. Congrats and good luck with her.
