Bill Murphy said: "What a video to show at a PGCA annual meeting." This is just the kind of video that would be great to show at various sporting show events where the PGCA has a booth. And videos depicting the restoration of this Parker or any Parker fo that mater would underscore the very reason for PGCA's existence and would help to communicate the message to the visitors at these events that these old double guns are a national treasure and worth the saving. Just my 2 cents

I have a video of the gun in its "before" state that I would be happy to contribute. It is not too pretty and makes it all that more amazing that Charlie has it working.

Do you believe in miracles? This restoration will be one. Best of luck to you Charlie, it will be a real project!

Charlie, you crack me up. I had a pint of syrup boxed up for you, but changed my mind and am sending you a quart. I swear, you are the new Popcorn Sutton.

Charlie, that's exactly what I had in mind. We would like to see a video of the test fire with "before" pictures in the introduction.

What Charlie is doing is exactly what this old gun needs - a restoration to shooting condition, but otherwise leaving the character it has acquired in its hard life.

PS: Nothing beats some good 'shine either
