    Best place to ask this question is on the Parker Gun Collectors board (http://www.parkergun.org/). As was pointed out above, there are a ton of variables -- the principal ones being gauge, percentage of case colors remaining and the condition and registration of the of the screws. When you ask your question on that board, it would be best to include some pictures:

    1. Overall gun;
    2. Four pics of the frame -- right, left, top, and bottom;
    3. Pic of the blueing on the trigger guard;
    4. Pic of the water table;
    5. Pic of the barrel flats;
    6. Pic of the rib from the top close to the muzzle;
    7. Pic of the muzzle end the gun showing how the two barrels meet;
    8. PIc9s) of any obvious flaws, dings, mars, scraps, dings, etc.

    If you have stock dimensions, it would be a help but those are a secondary consideration compared to condition.

    The folks on the Parker board can give you a good estimate of the gun's value and a lot of good comments on the gun's condition.

    Hope this helps.
