Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Manufactured in early 1884 this parker double barrel 10 gauge is being sold on behalf of an estate. The pictures will hopefully tell the story of/answer questions regarding it. This particular firearm is out of my usual realm of knowledge. The barrels have a single bead front sight, and are on a concave rib marked “Parker Bros. Makers Meridian, CT USA Titanic Steel.” The barrels are each 32 inches and appear to be full choke measuring +/- .037. The barrel lug has markings of 512 and 3 on one side and two patent dates on the other: June 25, 1878, and April 11, 1876.
The gun features extractors and double-set triggers. The metalwork on the gun is heavily engraved. On each side of the receiver, there is a Pointer behind a Pheasant. On the bottom of the receiver, there are two pheasants one taking flight, one on the ground, and both in front of a fence. The stock appears to be walnut, tiger-striped with heavy checkering on the pistol grip. The forearm is similarly checkered. The buttplate, which is metal/crosshatched is held in place by 4 engraved screws. The grip cap appears to be rubber with a blank oval. The wood shows use with the expected dents and dings on a 138-year-old firearm. There is pitting on the exterior of the barrel as well as some pitting inside the barrels.
Please note that the “white” showing on some of the metal parts is chalk that was used to enhance the view of the markings. It was appraised at 40% by the late Jim Kelly owner of Darlington Gun Works, Inc.
