Default Let's see some wood!

Parker Reproductions enjoy a reputation of having some very attractive wood. Some have fiddle back from head-to-toe, some have feather crotch, some are straight-grained quarter sawn, some are honey and smokin' while others are swirling masterpieces. But all are beautiful . . . so let's see them!

I'll start it off with a 20-ga. DHE, 26" Q1/Q2, DT, SG, SPL.

The thread title caused me some initial concern. Glad it's started off so well!

Thank you for posting the pics, Bob. I assume the top pic is a 20/16 bi-gauge set, are those Krieghoffs or Galazans? Is the handling noticably different with the 28" 20-ga. barrels aboard vs. the 28" 16's? Are the 16's lighter in weight than the 28" 20-ga. bbls.?

Nice piece of English in the bottom pic!

Wouldn't it be great if we could get every Parker Repro owner that visits this thread to post pics of their Repros wood? If you're anything like me, you can look at gunstock wood for hours on end. Some Repro wood is flashy and striking while other Repro wood gets its beauty by being a bit understated, more subdued if you will, having a nice warm glow. It makes no difference, because in the end, they all have qualities that please the eye.

If every one of those that have a Repro would post pics to this thread, imagine the library of pics we would have for all of us to enjoy!

Greg,
The top pic is the 16G 3 Barrel (20G-26" Ic/M, Two 28" Krieghoff 16G barrels - Q1/Q2 and M/F). Can't remember weight.
