    Default Parker-Hale Model 1200 Date of manufacture?

    I recently purchased a Parker-Hale model 1200 30-.06 and would like to know the date of manufacture of this rifle. On the left side of the receiver is the serial number P-38021. On the left side of the barrel is a proof mark BNP with a crown above the BNP. On the top of the barrel in front of the receiver is JANA Denver, Col. Cal. 30/06. On the top of the barrel in front of the rear sight is Parker-Hale Ltd, Birmington England. It has a (apparent) gold plated trigger. After cleaning this rifle appears to be 95-98%. Fit and finish appears above average, however the recoil pad was compressed with deterioration of the rubber(it was stored in a closet with the butt on the floor-I had the pad replaced). This rifle is extremely accurate and will be used in the field this fall. I have never owned or known anyone with a Parker-Hale rifle . I would very much appreciate any and all information on these rifles and specifically the date of manufacture of this one. Thanks.

    I can just tell you that I own one. I was trying to find info on mine as well. I can vouch for its accuracy. I have a post on here somewhere about it with a pic or two. I finally found someone in England that I contacted via email, and set things straight with mine. I am not sure when it was manufactured tho. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] thats the email I sent my question to and he answered back within a couple days. Mine is chambered in .308 Win. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is the website address I found where I got the email address from.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Thats the link to my post also, but just contains info about my rifle. There is a pic there tho if you want to see it. Hope that helps.

    Thanks! I appreciate your taking the time to respond to my question with the first leads I've had. I've visited all the gunshops in this area as well as numerous gun shows to no avail. I'll follow through and let you know what I find out. Thanks again.
