Default the unofficial pachmayr upgrade thread

I didn't see a specific forum for them , so if you want, lets post them here?
some may cry foul and consider them gaudy and un-parkerlike, but just between you and me, I like flashy shotguns.
I saw my first pachmayr upgrade at the Richmond show where the PCA had 3 tables set up. I fell in love with the one I have now.
I had to have it.
sure, its not the czars A1, but it was just what this young single sailor needed.
its a 26" vr ic/mod, sst, btfa, ejt, skeleton buttplate....and gold everywhere.
anyone else have a fancy for these upgrades?

I know there is a book out on them, but id sure like to discuss them here one on one. got anything to share?
numbers made? popularity? value?
ok...I started, your turns!

There are several Pachmayr Parker upgrades at the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, WY.
