  • Posted in thread: Parker Double Hammer Lifter (leaf springs) on 05-22-2008 at 07:11 PM
    The odds are not high that you will find a new replacement spring; but I would start my making
    this same post to the Parker Gun Collectors Association forum . If they can't suggest a source,
    there are...

  • Posted in thread: Low-end $ double-barrels? on 05-15-2008 at 04:37 AM
    Unless you can find a good used double gun with a cut stock, get the boy something like an 870
    youth model. Cutting a stock on a double gun really hurts its value, even on a low-priced
    model; and doub...

    You will likely be unable to find new replacement stocks; but you may find an old original
    stock on eBay, or one of the gun auction sites like gunbroker or auction arms. But if your
    stock is only crac...

  • Posted in thread: winchester model 42 on 05-10-2008 at 03:03 PM
    Without seeing the gun, no one can accurately appraise the piece; but good Model 42s are always
    in demand and therefore have more value than their more common Model 12 counterparts in 12, 16
    and 20. T...

    I once had the opportunity (or misfortune) to witness the results of a shotgun shooting, the
    shootee taking a load of #8 shot (1 1/8oz) at about 6 feet in the upper chest from a sawed-off
    single barre...

  • Posted in thread: Recoilless on 01-17-2008 at 04:03 PM
    I believe Browning made and marketed a recoiless single barrel trap gun a few years back; but
    I've never shot one, or was interested enough in the gun to learn how the systems operated
    (perhaps you ca...

  • Posted in thread: .410 on 01-16-2008 at 12:51 AM
    The 410 is fine for some uses, but a terrible choice for others. These little guns are so cute,
    especially in a sleek side x side, that one can't help envisioning himself as being a much
    better shoote...

  • Posted in thread: Parker bros. shotgun on 01-15-2008 at 11:32 PM
    Parker Brothers shotguns are highly collectible; but values are all over the spectrum, with
    present existing examples fetching anywhere from $50 for a parts gun to more than $250K for a
    very rare and ...

    On the contrary UnBound, those guys with fancy engraved shotguns featuring stunning walnut
    stocks are some of the finest shots with a scattergun in the world. Discounting those
    individuals who don't s...

  • Posted in thread: Syracuse Arms Company on 08-30-2007 at 10:49 PM
    Production records for the Syracuse Arms Company no longer exist, so there is no way to provide
    an exact shipping date on your gun. From personal research I can tell you the following:
