If you are in north east TX you can visit H.Chitic in Terrel and get a good story. I would not recomend selling or buying there but he is very knowledgeable on Parkers. Their was also a dealer in Tyler who realy good with Parkers.

I believe Hershell Chaddick has left that wonderful old building his business was in. It is empty anyway. I think he is still working out of his house.

Check is on it's way to PGCA.
Tonights flash pics were no good - we'll try again during daylight.
Frame size is 1. Only thing that appears to be not original is a Pachmayr pad.
Thanks to everyone.

Chadick's is still in business somewhere, per their website and recent phone conversations. They better be, because I just sent them a big check yesterday for a new purchase. And, unlike a lot of his listings, this one was a very good deal. I should see it in person next week.

1) Thumbs down on the recoil pad
2) Definitely looks re-colored in a non-Parker fashion. Hopefully not a torch job...
3) Wood looks a little like replacement wood but I'll let the late Remington Parker guys comment to that.

$2K, maybe more if you get the right person.

Does not look like those are original Parker colors, same for wood finish - redone, pad is without a question not even close to anything Parker would slap on a gun. Kind of wonder if it is a torch job because of the pattern on the floor plate. As a shooter it is probably an OK gun but there is nothing original about the finish and the price should reflect that. $2K would be top price but someone may want it for that.

Further questioning of people familiar w/ this gun confirmed that it had indeed had both the metal and the wood 'refinished' about 20 years ago.

Excellent internet diagnosis 'doctors' - thanks.

Is that serial number extremely high for a Parker with rib logo? I am not very familiar with Remington era guns so I may be totally off base. Randall, what does it say on the rib inscription?
