History of Parker Bros.
Parker Bros. made their first shotgun in Meriden, CT in 1854 and for more than 70 years produced some of the finest firearms that money could buy. Parker Bros. was purchased by Remington in 1934 and the Parker Bros. name ceased manufacturing in 1942 due to Remington’s increase in manufacturing weapons for World War II. Because of the limited amount of time that Parker Bros. shotguns were produced, there is a rarity and a mystique surrounding the name. It is believed that serial number 242,487 was the last Parker Bros. shotgun ever created.
When Parker began making shotguns, they manufactured both elaborate and plain models, but they did not distinguish between them in their sales literature except by the sales price. After some time, Parker Bros. developed a grading system that ranges, low to high quality and from grades 0 to 9. The grading system started at zero and began to rise as the shotguns became more elaborate and expensive. Eventually, the numerical grades were combined with letters to help differentiate the individual characteristics of the shotguns, but it did not last long: the letter grades became simplified and became essentially interchangeable with the numerical grading system.
