LIFTER, FACTORY 98% FINISHES, ONE OF THE BEST REMAINING, NICE!

General Specs: Parker, Year 1882, 12 Gauge, 7lbs 15oz, SxS, ANTIQUE!
Serial Number: 22993

When some Parker collectors hear of a Grade 2 lifter gun in 12ga. they yawn casually, as most you will ever see are “grey guns”, with most of their finish gone, cut stocks, butt pads, repaired cracks, pitted bores, loose on face…the list goes on as the guns are over 100 years old and saw a LOT OF USE.  Those same guys will perk right up when you mention one with HIGH, FACTORY ORIGINAL CONDITION.  They only made about 2500 of these guns total, and this gun, sn22993, is likely one of the finest Quality G, Grade 2 damascus Parkers left on the planet.  Made in 1882 and still matching the factory letter to the “T”, the gun is in untouched, factory original condition with 98% vivid case color, 95% Damascus pattern remaining, near perfect factory checkering, perfect screws, and most all its original factory wood finish intact.   Some would call it a “museum quality” piece, but most I know would take it to vintage shoots, show it off, and break some clays with it, then take it afield as one of their favorite upland guns to shoot a few birds with each season.  Parkers in this condition and low production numbers are continuing to grow in value and the best examples bring extraordinary prices and high demand.  This is one of the best you will ever see, so don’t hesitate if you want it in your collection!  Thanks for looking.
