My Fathers Parker Shotgun

Hi Everyone,
I want to first say thank you for letting me join your group. I grew up with my fathers Parker shotgun on a gun rack above the headboard of my bed. He was the second owner and used it to hunt pheasant and partridge here in Michigan. I'm not sure if it's allowed but I would like someones help pricing it's value and posting it for sale in the classified section of this forum. If you're interested in helping me please let me know what parts you would want pictures of and any other information you would need. Admin please delete if not allowed. Thanks for your help. Scott

Welcome. It always seems a shame when someone wants to sell a piece of their family history, but that's your choice.
It would help if you took good, clear pics of the gun, but the entire gun and closeups of markings, etc.

If we can't get you the help you need, there is a Parker Gun forum

I agree it is a shame. My children were born after my Father passed away so they have no physical connection and when I pass away I have no one to leave my guns to. Not to get political but my Father was a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and I plan on taking the money from the sale of his gun and donating it. I know deep down he would be happy with my actions. I will take some pictures and post them here. Thanks for your help. Scott

Let us know if someone there responds before the usual suspects here chime in.

Looks a great old Parker
