I thought it smacked of Gough when I first saw the pictures.

I take it from the text of the letter there was only Order Book information for this gun. No Stock Book.

Right Corey - to be expected, it represents 6-iron Damascus.

What a great find! The link contains some additional info on Thad S. Sharretts. Says he had nine children. Maybe he bought this Parker for one of them as the engraved initials are not his?

Thanks for the info. From the Parker letter, posted previously, the gun was ordered with a gold plate on the pistol grip. This is the only difference found on the gun (or the leg o mutton case) from the letter. The cotton barrel slip was marked with C R Sharretts; matching the initials on the cap. It seems the gun may have been passed down to a child or other family member who made the switch.

There are indeed several Parker Gun smiths that can make the repair of the original stock! I have to agree " What a great find" A discovery like this only happens rarely, Congrats, Gary
