After the book was in print for a while, I began to notice that some dealers were for the first time mentioning the occasional No. ½-frame gun in their advertising, and since I got no letters that began, “McIntosh, you dimwit, everybody knows about ½-frame Parkers…” I began to wonder what I’d stumbled onto.
