Thanks Dave Weber first here, for registration help! Now your help please ..............

------------------
I got my hands recently on some of Gramps' records, and I'd like to be able to get my hands on some of his guns...

They would have been auctioned off in about 1989 - '90, in Pittsburgh PA. 2 stories on CMP Forums in the last couple years, about former servicemen finding M1 Garands that they'd had assigned to them 50+ years before, gives a lot of hope. I'm surely believing that Garands wouldn't command the same attention that gramps' guns would, in ANY gun community (edit: EXCEPT ON A 2-WAY RANGE, AND YOU ARE ON BUSINESS END)

This is what gramps doc'ed:

(if other descriptors are necessary, I can excerpt from his doc's; difficult to read however. And do indulge me please; I know sidearms + rifles, cartridges from perhaps 25 ft., but I know LITTLE about scatterguns)


Parker BHE Double Barrel, serno 145832 (Ga ???)

Parker 12 Ga Vulcan Grade, serno 92723

Parker 16 Ga, serno 235255 GH Grade (?)

Parker 12 Ga, serno 101235 Vulcan Grade

Parker 12 Ga, serno 85523 G Grade "BOHLER BARRELS" (DOUBLE BARREL ? ) Anton Sodia Ferlach Austrian made or modified

Parker Hammer Gun, serno 12252 Damascus Barrels, made 1876 - 78

Parker B-Grade single barrel (12 Ga. I gather); serno 145832
(dgs edit: this I'm told is not a correct #; it might be the # of one of 2 below, w/ unk #)
B Murphy pointed out serno 145832 is on Frank LeFever's service order for a Parker BHE of Gramp's, so another gun to add to list here... (this is noted on a letter from LeFever, TO gramps; dated late '60's, early 70's - pic of letter on another forum
)

Parker D Grade serno N139796 "Damascus Steel extra barrels" (?)

Parker 20 Ga, serno 202763 made 1922 - 23

L C Smith 12 Ga Field Grade serno unknown; may be in the company of others?

Fox Sterlingworth 16 Ga no serno; bought new 1933-34, Beavertail Forearm, also perhaps in the same company?

Ansley H Fox serno 27913, 12 OR 16 Ga "Automatic Ejectors, good BARRELS"



Any help, including reference to other boards would be helpful; thanks.

Yes Gentlemen, I know what is said about needles and stacks of hay. But there are a dozen needles here, and I think the needles are bigger than most others.......
