I now care for #59517 - 1890 AH 30" F/F PG DT Splinter Skeleton
Listed as a C.E.P. gun in TPS
Extensive engraving - 10 dogs and multiple birds.
Gough "the elder" signed under setters
Not a high condition gun but I will not restore.
Intend to hunt with it someday. I have a box of 2 1/2" RST Low pressure Bismouth set aside.
This is a great thread - Thanks all for info

Interesting to me in that this thread all began with a picture from Jack Haughs shop in Milan. Jacks shop was/is about a 2 minute drive from my office. I have spent many an hour there like a lot of other folks pouring over those same photos. Jack was an incredibly talented individual. I was fortunate not only to see the pictures of his work but able to fondle some of his custom guns. In his later years Jack built a good number of safari rifles, not my cup of tea but dang they were gorgeous. My first Model 21 was a 20 gauge basket case that Jack restored some years ago. Unfortunately Jack passed last February.

I had the opportunity to handle one of Haugh's custom rifles - a M70 .458 "Guide's gun" I don't remember the actual weight, but it was very light. It was intended to be carried, not shot. Recoil would be brutal. It would only have been shot if someone was about to be eaten.

Default Gough on a Parker

Pictures below of a high grade Parker, AA?, marked "H GOUGH ENGRAVER"

Jim DeMunck cleaned up the engraving on the gun and I got the pictures from Jim.

If more details are uncovered, I'll post that too.

I'm assuming that would be the same Jack Haugh who built some fabulous contemporary flintlock rifles and locks as well, correct? Including a limited run (200?) of a Penn. Bicentennial Commemorative LongRifle where he teamed up with another ML legend, John Bivins. One talented dude!!
