David, you have a wonderful gun. I think I could probably hit a target or two with her. Good luck and shoot a round of trap with that SA. John

Bobby, have you seen SBT guns with Titanic barrels? There is no reference to barrel steel in either the order books or stock books. They only reference "Trap" and the grade such as 4 (Trap-4) I'm guessing that Acme was used for most grades but possibly Peerless for the top grades? Since the name of the barrel steel isn't mentioned, I just put in "fluid steel". Can't go wrong with that! The gun was definitely made in 1918, not 1917 according to the order book. The gun was definitely made to shoot high as indicated by the stock dimensions. Most Parker SBT's are 1 1/2" at comb, 2" at heel, and 14 1/2" length of pull as default. Who ever owned this gun probably was very quick to the target.

This SA probably would be a fantastic Long Yardage Handicap gun. I'll bet that DAC would print at least 10" above POA at 27 yards.
