1908 Parker Brothers shotgun photography is perfect for camp, man cave
In the hunting world, the words “Parker Brothers” are spoke with respect and awe. The Connecticut shotgun maker began production in 1987, making what many have called the finest American shotguns ever made.
While Parker Brothers went out of business in 1937 and production (by Remington) ceased in 1942, the guns are still prized for the quality of build and durable service. This 12-gauge side-by-side was owned by Ernest Rice, my maternal grandfather, and many squirrels were taken with the gun. My father and uncle later used the shotgun before it was put into a drawer and closed away for years.
All of the gun’s bluing has worn off the shotgun, and the scars of countless hunting trips are evident on its stock, forearm and barrel. But it’s still as tight as the day it was sold, and I use the gun to this day.
Famous owners of Parker Brothers shotguns included Russian Czar Nicolas II, Gary Cooper, Zane Grey, Clark Cable and World War II hero Gen. George Patton.
