re the ebony diamond motif...have seen this from time to time...

have heard that this type of modification was done by safari outfitters, who specialized in outfitting swells for trips to remote places...

did once sell a parker vh that came from the estate of one lowell thomas...it had a silver plated frame and a similar stock head reinforcing alteration...

have you seen others with similar alteration?
Posted By: ed good Re: 16 ga parker vhe two sets of barrels - 07/27/21 07:24 AM
now $6600...

Most likely just to hide a crack repair in the head of the stock. Similar to checkered side panels on guns that did not have them originally.
Posted By: ed good Re: 16 ga parker vhe two sets of barrels - 07/27/21 11:59 AM
yup, or there could be reinforcing hardware under the diamonds...

also have 20 ga fox with similar diamond shaped inserts at the stock head...

This is a better version done with Ivory. This is a Fox AE 16 Gauge currently being restocked. [Linked Image from i.imgur.com]

If only GI and GB had a comment feature in the listing page... the tarring and feathering he gets here isn't nearly enough to save those poor saps who find and purchase his over-priced and often butchered relics..
Posted By: mc Re: 16 ga parker vhe two sets of barrels - 07/28/21 06:08 PM
It's hiding a cross pin repair most likely, there are much better way to do a split head repair this isn't one of them
Posted By: ed good Re: 16 ga parker vhe two sets of barrels - 07/28/21 06:14 PM
well, gb has a comment feature...

its called feedback...

here's mine since 2002 : https://www.gunbroker.com/a/feedback/profile/128526

1662 and counting...

my listings on gi since 2007 are approaching 400...

trying to save the world from itself can be futile...
Remember P.T. Barnum's adage .......... "There' a sucker born every minute".

I also like the one ........... "There's no accounting for people's tastes".

When you consider those two, in the context of the discussion here, it's understandable.

Was not referring to your feedback.. I wrote "comment feature in the listing page...".

jmc, its ok...whenever some malcontent comes on this fine forum and bad mouths me and my 100's of happy customers, then it just provides me with yet another opportunity to advertise my doublegun expertise and services on this fine forum...thank you and thanks to all of your ilk...
Posted By: ed good Re: 16 ga parker vhe two sets of barrels - 07/28/21 09:21 PM
stan, ah hear you...we awl have different tastes in firearms an udder thangs...

a challenge for me is to put aside my pejudice and make the best effort i can to make the most money i can for my consignment customers...just because i sell erm, dont necessarily mean ah like erm...

good thang this 16 ga straight gripped parker, is not a 16 a straight gripped 16 ga fox...udder wise, ah would be sorely tempted to squirrel hit away...but then, hit is a 16 ga packer ejector gon, wid two sets of barrels...

oh. oh...ah may be fallin fur dis one...you gotta admit, dim dark ebony stock inserts are sooo coool!

Ed...

What's the wall thickness on this here gun? And if I purchased this gun and measure the wall thickness and am not satisfied in the numbers, can I return for full refund?

If not buyer beware... ?
Posted By: battle Re: 16 ga parker vhe two sets of barrels - 08/04/21 08:08 PM
Strange you dont just answer the question... Ed ?

Must be trying to hide something, buyer beware...
Posted By: ed good Re: 16 ga parker vhe two sets of barrels - 08/04/21 08:17 PM
if you were a buyer, which you are not, you would be asking for wall thicknesses in key areas, like in front of the chambers and perhaps seven or so inches down from the muzzles...

also, english an belgian made barrels are the most suspect for having unsafe barrel wall thicknesses...

have never measured an american made gun with unsafe wall thicknesses, except for those that have been reamed out after market...
