The No. 0 frame is for standard 20s, light 16s, and heavy 28-gauges. Standard 28s were built on the No. 410-bores on No. 000. Both of these are No. 0 frames with differing amounts of steel milled out of the action bar to make them lighter. Five sizes, seven weights. Actually, though, there is a sixth Parker frame—a No. ½, smaller than a No. 1, larger than a No. 0—and it apparently was not widely recognized until just the past few years. I do not consider myself an expert on Parker. I’ve done a fair amount of research on the guns over the past twenty-five years, but there are people around who know a whole lot more about Parkers than I do.

C. Middleton never fired his Invincible. No doubt the crash forced his attention to matters more pressing than a first shooting trip with a new gun. He stored the Invincible in its leather case, factory hang-tag still attached, in a closet and waited for better days. Better days were a long time coming. Years passed. C. Middleton died. The Invincible waited. When Middleton’s widow died, the house sat empty for a couple of years and eventually was sold. The new owner found the Invincible still sitting in an upstairs closet.

By 1939, the machinery was running again, and production continued at a fair pace until 1942, when Remington converted most of its resources to wartime weaponry. From then on, it was only a matter of time. A few Parkers were built during the war, assembled from parts machined years before. Gun No. 242385, built in June 1942 and shipped in 1947, was for a long time thought to be the last Parker, but I’ve seen No. 410 that also was shipped in 1947. Remington apparently assembled a few more Parkers even as late as the 1960s, as gifts to retiring executives; Remington reckons the highest number ever assigned was 242487.
