Restoring a 20g. Parker Trojan “Parts Gun”.

We must not always jump to the conclusion too quickly that a gun is only good for Parts.  This 20g. Parker Trojan would have been considered just that by many people.  It came to me as just a complete action with trigger guard and a set of barrels.  It had no wood at all and the forend iron was completely missing.  The metal finish was all plumb patina and many of the action screws were messed up.  The gun had the advantage of having uncut 28″ barrels with good bores and being a 20g Parker. 

A NOS Parker forend iron had to be fitted to the frame and barrels.  A lot of the action screws needed replaced.  All new wood was made, finished and checkered.  Barrels re blued and action re case color hardened. 

It was a lot of work, but this “Parts Gun” was restored back to like new condition and waits to be carried in the field for many more years to come.
