Most of my Parkers are in original condition and what some may call beaters. I call them fun shooters. I rescued this BHE with the understanding that the previous horrible restoration would be reversed. Iím not a trap shooter but did verify its capability prior to sending it to Brian. Canít wait to get it back. The photos of it show an astounding project performed by Brian. He has helped me with advice over the years and his posts on this site have been educational. We are fortunate to have people like Brian available.

Attached are copies of Chuckís letter and the original hang tag.

Got the BHE from Brian the other day. I have been being careful to not let any drooling get on it. Have been handling/using it with white cotton gloves.

The photos are just teasers compared to actually seeing it. It has been brought back to life without any imperfections in the fit/finish, checkering, engraving or anywhere that I can see. Thanks so much Brian for turning this damaged piece into a beautifully restored Parker. Thanks also for choosing Mr. Gornet, Turnbull and others to help with this artistic recreation.

Thank you very much fpr the kind words Bob. I try to make it so that the only complaint is that the work may have taken longer than anticipated. If that is all, then I am soing good in my book.
