This superb big bore Parker has Parker special steel barrels, full length matted top rib with twin white beads, double triggers, extractors, auto-safety, No. 3 frame. Unstruck barrel weight of 5lbs. Capped pistol grip buttstock is checkered in three point pattern with vacant shield near toe and has an aged red pad. Splinter forearm with Deeley release and engraved steel tip are checkered in diamond pattern. Case hardened action in engraved in standard late G Grade pattern with flying ducks on both left and right side and with ducks in small circle on trigger plate. Action is marked "Parker Bros." on both sides. Trigger guard with burst of scroll on bow and serial number at tang. All visible serial number match. Very fine and collector quality. Barrels retain nearly all of a professional quality restored finish which is difficult to discern from original in color and contrast. Action retains nearly all of its bold original case color, silvering on fences but dark and vivid elsewhere. Trigger guard retains more than 90% of its original blue. Stocks are sound and retain most of their original finish with finish added for preservation. There is a streak behind the top tang where likely a bore solvent ran down the stock and extends to pad. This could be fixed by some of today's top wood workers. Pad is an older replacement and is beginning to harden. Mechanics are crisp and bores are bright and shiny with a small ping in right tube about 10" from the muzzle. This is a rare Parker with The Parker Story indicating production of 40 in this configuration, and would be very difficult to improve upon.
