31 Inch Mystery
2 Attachment(s)
Some of you may recall I acquired a C top action 10 gauge last year that is the only C 10 top action with original 31 inch barrels. The bad news is the order book for this Parker is missing so we do not know who ordered this gun. At 10 pounds 7 ounces, it is just under the 11 pound limit for trap guns. I feel sure it must have been a special order, but by who? Maybe some of our trap historians might know. It is a 33,xxx sn.

Thanks for any leads:bigbye:

I love the fence motif on that gun. I have a number three 10 gauge hammer gun with pheasants in front of a fence.

Good luck with your search.

Fred Kimble had a 33" top action ten, Grade 5. I can't find my serial number list of Kimble guns. Is your gun a #4 frame? Kimble was a shooter for Parker at one time, as I recall. My 33" top action C grade was also made for a Parker company shooter. Too bad about the missing order book.

It is a 4 frame. If it is a Kimble gun then I will be duty bound to offer it to John Davis

John has the Kimble list. As I recall, his 33" gun was in the 4x,xxx range. Mine is in the late 40s.

Short of finding the Order Book, the only hope is finding a reference to a trap shooter who ordered a C with 31 inch barrels
