Parker shotguns are the most famous side-by-sides ever made in America. Parker Bros got into the shotgun game in 1866, and from their factory in Meriden, CT. The company’s gun business prospered into the twentieth century.
But then Great Depression hit and sales plummeted. In 1934, Remington stepped in and bought all of the Parker gun business and published the catalog you see here to announce their acquisition. It’s on Ebay now, and the auction ends tomorrow, 2/15 @ 04:35:22 PST. BTW: the pages shown here are just a few of the ones that make up the entire catalog.
