Would it be a fair comment to say that with Parkers, the difference in grade is more a matter of external cosmetics (engraving, wood, checkering), rather than one of mechanics?

That would be my guess, Dave. I haven't read of VH or Trojan being less reliable than higher grades. I admire the old craftsmen's art but the Plain Janes are so much of the "hardware store" they are more pleasing to me.

This one was made in 1913 and has excellent wood. Just needed a coat of oil or two and a little rottenstone.

Not a great deal of wear on the gun, just age appropriate. The forend needs checkering chased, stock has good checkering. It's a heavy gun, 8.5#. Blueing isn't awful. couple of spots where the blue is thin, looks like storage marks on the barrel, i touched them up. Screws are botched a bit, but not terrible.

I just sold a similar Parker a few months back and somewhere along the way I was told (perhaps by one of our forum members) that there were more 12ga. Parker VH's on a #2 frame with 30" bbls, choked F&F, than any other configuration. It was the "standard" Parker, if it can be said there was such a thing.


My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

Well, I'll give it a try.

This didn't work out as I planned, but it's viewable. I don't know how to use Photobucket.
