A true collector's piece, pictures are of actual shotgun you will be receiving. Buy it now!! The Trojan was first produced in 1912 and was Parker's attempt to get into the less expensive market at a sales price of $25.50. To keep the costs down, in an effort to appeal to the "average" man, no customer options were offered on the Trojan. This kept production costs down and made the factory processes easier, remember production line processes were not mature at that time. Serial number (221067) puts date of manufacture in early 1927. The latching system was changed and around 1920 the rib extension was eliminated. Engraving was nonexistent and the checkering patterns were done in a course 12 lines to the inch. The Trojan frame is uncharacteristic of all the other grades and is surely done to further simplify production. The butt plate was changed to be less involved, dropping the traditional dogs head in favor of a straight, molded black plastic butt plate with only a few horizontal lines across it. The forend latch hardware was replaced by a simple internal spring latch and is removed by pulling on the top of the forend. This particular model has 28" barrels and a walnut stock. Most of original bluing has worn away from normal use, the metal surfaces now take on a plum colored hue. Stock and forend have surfaces scratches and marks from use but no cracks. Very minor signs of past surface rust, bore on both barrels is very bright and do not appear to have any rust. Stock and forend were refinished at some point in this firearms life. Pictures represent actual condition of firearm. Shipping to lower 48 only, Shipping $30.00 Can be shipped in a hard case for additional charge.
