Default Kudos to Brad Bachelder

Just looking at a couple guns this morning and this one caught my eye, Brad does a fantastic job at restoration as evidenced by this piece. There are a lot of good guys out there Brian, Chris, Turnbull,and others. Just thinking that we are lucky to have such craftsmen available to us! Now if we could just get that turn around time down a little? Here are a few photos for your afternoon viewing pleasure, Gary

Gary, there should be a P stamped in the forward section of the right barrel flat. Do you find one there?

Incidentally, there appear to be lightening cuts in the water table - is that a twenty-bore?
