A Restocked Parker Reproduction DHE 20g. with a handsome rooster.
This old family gun had seen a lot of use over the years. The buttstock had been cut down very short and then a crude wood extension added on to make it shootable. The owner wanted the wood work put back right again. The gun was fitted with a piece of new, grade appropriate, American walnut. The dimensions were matched to original. A new buttplate, grip cap and new screws were also fitted. The original forend was refinished and all checkering cut/recut in the original factory style.
Good for another 100 years.
A fully restored and custom stocked Parker VH 16g. on 0 frame shown here with the owners proud take for a hard day of hunting.
This family heirloom was a little worse for wear and the owner of it wanted it to look like new again. The barreled action had very good original bluing under some minor rust freckling, so it was cleaned up to 99% condition without needing to be re-blued. All smaller parts and bolt assembly were polished out and re-blued. All original screws were salvaged and cleaned up. The original walnut stock was refinished as well.
This repro 20g. had its original buttstock broken right through the wrist. This is a common problem on some Parker Reproductions due to softer claro walnut that was used in combination with poor grain layout in the wrists. A new stock and forend were made for it from high quality circassian walnut. The checkering and finish was done in the original Meriden style. The buttstock was made to customer’s specifications for LOP, drop and cast-off. Also, an additional set of 16g. barrels were fitted to the gun to make a 2 barrel 20/16 set. Both breech faces were polished out and broached in the Meriden style.
