Default Lifter 20 ga.

Hello Everyone, I Just wanted to share a few pictures of my recent acquisition. Gun letters, with one exception, barrels are now 26". I'm very excited to own this little grouse gun. After receiving some great advice from fellow members, I have decided to make this gun the centerpiece of my small collection. I Will have the Plain Twist barrels refinished and the wood repaired and refinished, then its off to northern Wisconsin for some Ruffed Grouse hunmting. Please feel free to ask questions and of course add any input. Special thanks to Bruce, Jeff, Garth, Charlie, Mike, Randy, Gary, Jim, and Doc. You all provided great knowledge and insight. Thank you of course to my brother Matt... the driving force of my passion.

I'm sure that gun will be a pleasure to carry and shoot. I envy you, and wish you good shooting!

I hunt grouse and woodcock with a 16 just like that but with 24” barrels cut back from 28”.

It is delightfully deadly.

Gary, originally it weighed 6lbs 13oz. I don't have a scale but with 4" missing off the barrels , I would guess 6 1/2 now. Per request "muzzles" extra heavy... and they are indeed stout. Dean

Cut barrels aren't so bad, if you want a Parker to hunt upland game.

Rich, unless I get a call from Bachelder's to pick up some guns, it will be in Medford. The cut barrels are minor to me, considering it's one of about 15 lifter 20's ever made. I believe it will be a great grouse gun.
