Default DH spliced stock redone by Mark Larson

Ok, so I took the advise and had Mark Larson redo the stock and both forends for the DH. Boy what differnce, He did a great job and I can't wait to get them back. Go back to the earlier posts and see the cut off stock and see what it looks like all finished. Now I can send them to Brad and have him install them on the reciever. I removed it and I think he better install it, that way it has a fighting chance of being done right the first time. Thanks to all for the advise, my first parker project is on the way to success.

Wow that is simply amazing! If there is a wood extension there you certainly could never tell from those photos. Please posts the before and after pics when the gun is completed.

Art,

Boy that was quick turn-around from Mark Larson!!!

You might consider asking Brad Bachelder to glass bed the stocks to the action it you are going to shoot those guns. Long ago I gave Brad a standing order to glass bed any vintage SxS of mine for which he must remove the stock. Let's call it "preventive maintenance" or if you like, "an ounce of prevention".

Great looking work!!!
Mark

Mark, I think that's great advice for anyone shooting any volume threw their 100 year guns.

Art, Kim and his brother Clark's work are second to none. Also they do complete restorations right down to making missing parts. Regards, Bill

I've got the parker repairs pretty much in hand with regards to the restoration. I do have a Ithaca Crass grade 4 that I'm going to have Kim take a look at and see if he can reatore it for me.

Whatever you decide, be sure to have the guns disassembled and internally cleaned and lubed by a reputable doublegun smith if you plan to use them.

A hundred years of oil and dirt inside makes for a lousy maintenance and reliability program. But I recognize that there are some of the opinion that an un-turned screw from a hundred years ago is more important than proper maintenance. So, the issue is subject to debate.

Chuck:
I assume what you really mean is an "un-buggered screw." It is possible to remove Parker screws without destroying the slots -- but it takes education and a proper turnscrew to do it.
And... the bottom plate you show is virtually clean compared to some Parkers I've taken to bits! Still, they should all be treated to a strip-and-clean every few years as you say. Thanks for sharing your wisdom.

Best, Kensal

I have sent all the metal parts to Brad and I'm sure he will do all the proper things that are needed. I recieved the damascus barrels back today and boy do they look great. Dale Edmonds did a fantastic job on them.
