1997 Long Beach, 1st edn, 270pp & 44pp of color illus, ltd to 500 signed, numbered, & slipcased copies. Like new, both book and slipcase. The Parker Gun Co. is a never-ending source of interest for collectors of American shotguns. Unlike most gun writers, Ed Muderlak has done a remarkable job doing ORIGINAL research instead of repeating the same (and often mistaken) information of others. The interesting results will shock you as they reverse the conventional wisdom thatís been followed for years. Muderlak takes a refreshing look at the small beginnings, the golden years, and the ultimate decline of what is no doubt the most famous of all American shotgun manufacturers. Profusely illustrated with dozens of color photos of Parker guns as well as historical photos in black and white, this well-written and concise text also includes a thorough appendix that lists grades, patents, gun weights, serial numbers, and many other specifications for the Parker enthusiast. Again, he did his own research for these appendixes, and came up with some revealing results. A must-have for the American shotgun enthusiast. Like new, both book and slipcase. 1997 Long Beach, 1st edn, 270pp & 44pp of color illus, ltd to 500 signed, numbered, & slipcased copies. Bookseller Inventory # 1979
