Thanks. I thought that was what I did, but it didn't work for me.

I've got a couple of Parker hammerguns on a 1 1/2 frame and thought they were about right for weight. Then a buddy sold me a D grade hammerless on a #1 frame- boy does it feel nice. Don't know how long I'd like carring a #2 frame in the field - but then I'm 66yrs with shitty legs so I keep to the clay target fields now. That 2 frame would be nice for soaking up the recoil. Paul

Larger frame Parkers are the linebackers of the shotgun world. Broad, beefy shoulders able to soak up the hits. Remmington 1894's and 1900's have the same feel to me. Great, sturdy guns. A friend of mine picked up one for only $500 a while back. Engraved pheasants, great barrels and wood, except the chokes were reversed: full right barrel/ic left barrel. Maybe it was set up for a leftie?

Interesting point about mechanics changing on lower grades. Lefevers lost the dolls head on DS and I grades, but still don't wear out. Any others whose mechanics change on the lower grades?

I would say that is an ordered upgraded wood for a VH. If that's the case, I bet the Parker Collectors could give a letter about exactly who the gun was shipped to or maybe the guy ordered it through a dealer.

not to be a party poop, but that wood looks awful nice and new to be on a 1913 field gun? could it have been, perhaps, maybe restocked?

It looks good because I cleaned the stock and applied several coats of oil. I don't think it's been restocked. I've got a GH and it has very good wood as well.

Otherwise, who would restock a VL? And why not replace the forend? The bores are good, and the blue is pretty good as well. It's a pre-WW I gun, back when wood was easy to come by, not being used up by the War. I don't think it was used much, carried some.
