Bottom of frame marked “Parker” and trigger plate is lightly scroll engraved with 3 large pheasants surrounded by scroll. Breech balls, top of frame and top lever are nicely scroll and geometric design engraved in typical D fashion. Bore diameter: left – .621, right – .622. Bore restrictions: left – .020 (imp/mod), right – .009 (imp/cyl). Minimum wall thickness: left – .034, right – .038 . Weight: 7 lbs. Drop at comb: 1-1/2″, drop at heel: 2-3/8″. LOP: 14-1/4″. CONDITION: Exceptionally fine, near mint throughout. Bbls retain virtually all of their fine orig blued finish with evidence of orig strike marks at breech and high luster blue on doll’s head extension. Receiver retains virtually all of its bright, dark and bold orig case color, just starting to tone on bottom of frame and at high edge points. Top lever and forearm tip retain nearly all of their bright orig cyanide case colors which is absolutely correct for a late Remington Parker like this. Trigger guard is near mint and retains 98-99% bright orig blue just starting to tone at tang. Buttstock and forearm are exceptional and all orig and retain nearly all of their factory orig hand-rubbed finish. Skeleton buttplate is superb and retains approximately 75-80% bright orig high polish blue. It would be much easier to simply call this a near mint and test fired only Parker. 51072-1 JSL (20,000-35,000) C&R – Lot 3452
