Parker fever
 
1 Attachment(s)
New guy checking in from TX. I have collected US military guns for 20+ years
And have enjoyed the research and the chase...
The collection is long gone now . Then I got the bug to buy a few shotguns . Started with a few Model 42ís... and then I had a chance to buy a well documented
1932 VH 410.... now Iím hooked ....
Iím looking for advice from fellow ďcollectors ď on what I should be looking for.
Iím not a shooter but that might change if I find another Britney :)
Iím thinking a 28g and a 20g to start and perhaps a hammer gun ...
Lots to learn but Iím on my way with a few Parker books..

Welcome Kurt!

That’s quite the “starter” Parker my friend!!

Keep looking for Parkers with that level of originality and condition and you’ll do fine!!!

Welcome Kurt! You are definitely starting off in the rare air area of Parker Guns. Nice find for Parker #1. Best wishes for finding that 28g. The 20 shouldn't be too difficult. I like your comment "Then perhaps a hammer gun...". Parker hammer guns are so much fun to shoot. Enjoy the "hunt"!!

Dean Romig 11-19-2020 11:14 AM

Right Mike, like a nice graded 16 gauge 0-frame Lifter.

Well I wouldn't know about that Dean. :whistle: :rotf:

Kurt,

Please careful "Parker Fever" is not curable by any known antibiotic. But it's one of the best fever you'll ever get!!!

Iím in Longview east of Dallas.

Good location. Any woodcock covers up that way?

Scott Janowski 11-26-2020 07:23 PM

Has anyone else ever seen the Parker Bros.that high on the frame before?
I would like to see more pictures of that gun.

Dean Romig 11-26-2020 08:26 PM

It’s certainly not the norm but we see such anomalies from time to time.

That engraver probably got scolded.

Perhaps he had just finished a "G" and 'forgot' that this one was not to be that grade. Then straightened it out immediately instead of putting Parker on a slight radius. Certainly didn't hide it by then.

Bill Murphy 11-27-2020 07:55 AM

What is the scratch or whatever on the barrel above the forend joint? Is this a sleeved gun?

Jeff Kuss 11-27-2020 08:19 AM

Bill,
It's a 410.

Bill Murphy 11-28-2020 11:20 AM

I mistook the .410 sculpting for a scratch. I took another look and can see it now. I guess I should know better.

Got lucky and found a VH 28g that is pretty close to the 410...

Kurt Sethlang 12-07-2020 07:32 PM
