32" BARRELS HAVE BRIGHT, LIGHTLY PITTED BORES. CHOKES ARE .005 AND .005. GUN HAS HEAVY BARREL WALLS, WITH 2 7/8" CHAMBERS. BUILT ON THE #3 FRAME. RECEIVER FLAT IS STAMPED WITH A U. MODERATE ENGRAVING SUGGEST THIS IS AN EARLY GRADE 1 GUN. INTERESTINGLY, THE ROUND KNOB, PISTOL GRIP BUTT STOCK IS FINISHED WITH A SKELETON STEEL BUTT PLATE, WHICH IS AN INDICATOR OF A HIGHER GRADE OR SPECIAL ORDER GUN. SERIAL #13XXX. THIS IS A MAGNUM GOOSE GUN OF IT'S DAY, WEIGHING IN AT JUST OVER TEN POUNDS! BORES ARE IN FINE BLACK POWDER SHOOTING CONDITION AND WOULD BE SUITABLE FOR USE WITH BLACK POWDER LOADS OR PERHAPS RST SHORT 10 GAUGE, L0W PRESSURE SMOKELESS LOADS. HOWEVER, THE BUTT STOCK IS A BIT MORE FRAGILE AND EXHIBITS PROFESSIONAL EPOXY AND PIN REPAIRS AT THE WRIST. I DID FIRE A FEW ROUNDS AT THE SKEET RANGE AND FOUND THE WOOD TO BE SOLID. LOCK WORK IS PRECISE AND THE ACTION LOCKS UP TIGHT WITH NO ISSUES. THIS GUN WOULD BE FINE AS AN OCCASIONAL SHOOTER, BUT THE WOOD PROBABLY WOULD NOT STAND UP TO THE POUNDING THAT RESULTS FROM HEAVY USE IN COMPETITIVE SHOOTING EVENTS. COURSE, IF IT DOES CRACK AGAIN, YOU CAN JUST GLUE HER UP AND CONTINUE SHOOTING, AS SOON AS YOUR EPOXY SETS! OVERALL, A VERY NICE 10 GAUGE PARKER LIFTER THAT CONVEYS LOTS OF CHARM AND CHARISMA.
