Jerry,

You need to show your Parker restocks! If you can do that with an Elsie sidelock your stocking a Parker boxlock should be easy, for you at least

Respectfully,
Mark

No, not true oil, it's a combination of 75% Amber Shellac and 25% boiled Linseed. About 10 coats are rubbed on, steel wooled off to fill the grain, then another bundle of coats put on to top surface the wood. It's a fairly hot mixture so it dries as you are polishing it on. A fellow that worked at Hunter Arms gave me the mixture percentages years ago and told me they mixed it and used it right in the Hunter Arms plant. Said they'd put it in a bowl and dab it on with cotton cloth and polish the crap out of the thing over and over again! He was a wealth of knowledge on the Smith guns. Jerry

Thanks Mark, I have a GHE 20 gauge coming up next, I'll post pictures of it if the customer does not object. The stock has already been run on the duplicator so it should not be long. Thanks again for the kind words, Jerry
PS. The EH has had an overhaul on the wood, do you have a safety mechanism that floats in the wood you'd sell?

If it were me I'd get it repaired. I've built around 15 muzzleloaders from planks of wood and can tell you 95% inletted still leaves lots of work on a Parker. The fitting of two different surfaces [ upper and lower tang ] and the right distance apart is hard. Also, Parker has the saftey lever inletted in an exact position. You'll be pulling your hair out.
