Apart from the make and model, condition is the most important aspect. I assume the Parker you speak of is a Parker-Hale?

Do post clear photos of the guns here. Also, check this thread for tips on inspecting a used gun for mechanical soundness.

Both the W&S and Greener are very good guns. Parker-Hale mostly imported Spanish guns and sold them under their name. Pick and handle both guns and see how you like they handle, 28" and 32". Ultimately, in India, I would pick the gun that is in functionally best condition than the name and model.

Could you post photos of the barrel flats showing proof marks, serial number, muzzles, and also insides of the barrels?

To me, the barrels were pitted and they were smoothed out and reblued.

Proofmarks are not visible at all. By the serial number, it was made in the 1960s, before 1967.

You really need to check the condition of the barrels inside, for any action play,etc. I posted a link above on how to check a used gun for yourself. It is quite easy if you read it. Buying a gun without looking it and checking it in person is not really advisable in Indian market. Many people just don't know how to store a gun properly and rust and pitting are not uncommon.

You better check it in person than rely on what the dealer tells you.

Rodda imported guns from various makers and retailed them in India. Without clear photos, little could be said about any specific gun. You need to provide clear photos taken in sunlight for any kind of meaningful inputs from our members. Good luck.
