1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.
  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Nice gun, but I fear you may meet reistance at $3,500. The Trojan grade was the base model and from all appearances, I think you are correct, that's not the original wood on the gun, so originality is affected.

    As a data point, I just sold a P grade Parker double, 100% original in very fine condition for $2,000, and that was after being on consignment with a well known dealer for almost 2 years.

    Fun guns to shoot -- mine was choked .037 / .038 and really whacked the targets.

    I really appreciate the kind emails I have received about my Father and his guns. All of his guns were beautiful and well maintained. This Parker is no different from the Sietz and the Perazzi we sold earlier this year, it is flawless. I’m sure there were countless hours spent on this gun.
    One my time to the top.

    I have had a request for a picture of the tip of the barrel. I thought I would also post it here in case someone else is interested in this shot.

    Pat--what they are looking for is the last 1/8" of the rib matting at the muzzle. Parker left that portion unmatted--if you will! When the matting extends all the way to the muzzle--it is an indication the barrels have been cut and shortened. This gun probably had 28" barrels when it left the factory.
