Too bad the effort faltered.

They were also advertising themselves as Parker restoration specialists too if I'm not mistaken. They even had a Meriden address, thought I think the operation was in Ohio somewhere? The one person I ever heard of that sent them a gun for restoration had a very negative experience, they essentially destroyed the gun.

They’re a part of American gunnaking history, though not especially valuable today but might be sometime in the future.

The future? It would be impossible for anyone who shoots a shotgun either recreationally or competitively to accept the busy breech area, filled with screw heads, adjustments, and other appendages that would quickly fill with dirt and powder residue. The ideal breech area is a Beretta SO or 680 series gun that does not allow any junk to accumulate to interrupt the action of the gun. The designers of this gun apparently succumbed to the Rube Goldberg theory of "Many parts is good". There is a way to design an over under gun with few openings in the breech area and that is what buyers of high end guns demand.

My point was ‘the pieces” as part of sporting history rather than something that could be schlepped together to make something that just “shoots”.

I'm sure a few collectors will just have to have one.
