    Nice! I've got one from about twenty years earlier. It's a tight gun, someone restocked it with an exceptional piece of walnut and did a good job at it. Mine has fluid steel barrels, which I'm sure yours has, but Parker made on special order Damascus barrels into the twenties.

    Mine was shipped to Manitoba, Canada in 1904 and somehow ended up in Georgia. I have a factory letter; you can join the Parker Owners Assn. and get one as well. I also have a 1894 Parker with Damascus barrels; some pitting in the barrels, but seems to do OK with 2.5" reduced recoil shells.

    The barrels on the one shown are perfect as well. It's the older one that has issues. The one shown is F/F, a duck gun. I'm seriously considering getting the barrels rust blued to match the stock's good looks. It's a heavy gun, as most Parkers are. Solid. I got the gun for a lot less than what it's worth, I think, which makes it especially nice in my book.

    I think the letter will cost you $40, but it's worth it. Less if you join the PBOA. It's worth every penny of it, though.
