Default GHE 32" Barrels

This past summer I purchased a 1913 GHE from one of the New Hampshire Parker Boys. It has 32' F/F Damascus barrels. The gun had been completely refinished at some point in the past before he purchased it. The barrels were blued I was going to just leave them but the more I looked at the gun the more I wanted a proper finish on the barrels. After reading the positive reviews on our own Breck Gorman I contacted him to do the job. He shipped me a PVC shipping container with a pre-paid FedEx shipping label. I received it today and packed and shipped the barrels to him. Can't wait to get them back!!

Thanks Dean. I saw the barrels that he did for you and I decided to go with him.
