Parker Grade 1 Lifter Action 12 ga Hammer gun, SN22911 made in 1881 with 30" Twist barrels bored full and full.  Number 2 frame - weight ca. 7 lbs 8 oz. A very attractive gun that has been carefully cleaned and still retains vivid case colors in hidden locations. Good mechanical order – ever so slightly off face with crisp locks. The pistolgrip stock has been repaired, rechecked, and nicely refinished (lop 14 1/4"; D@H 3"). Original steel butt plate. The action is bright and clean without rust, pits or corrosion. Barrels have very good Twist pattern, no dents and perfect bores. A very attractive gun and a good shooter. ___ $1200 (pics)

Remington Lifter Action Model 1876 Grade 1. Serial No. 5046.: Marked on the top rib “E. Remington & Sons, Ilion, N.Y.” Since it was made in 1877 or 8 it is an antique and requires no FFL for transfer. This is actually a transition gun form model 1876 to 1878. The serial number is in the M ’76 range with all that model’s standard characteristics (lifter action, pinned forend, Hepburn’s 1875 patent locks, flat hammer faces, and non-sliding top plate on the action between the balls). However, like on the Model 1878 there are no vestigial flash shields. It is a 12 gauge with 30” full choke bored barrels. The gun is mechanically excellent and cosmetically an even patina with no rust. Bores are bright with a little roughness. The stock has the original steel butt plate, has been cleaned, and a professional repair made to the head. Checkering is worn but clear. This is a difficult model to find and would make a fine addition to your collection of early American Shotguns and it is ready to shoot.  ___ $900 (pics)
