I just wanted to say hi. I decided to support the Parker Gun Collector's Association because of all help and advise I have gotten from the members over the past 6-8 months while I was refinishing my VH 16 ga. Brian Dudley, J.A.Early and Dean Romig have been especially helpful with pictures as well as historical and technical information. I also used at least two references for an engraver, Frank Conroy and case hardening from Malcolm Clark, both from Connecticut. I look forward to Parker Pages and reading more about Parkers on this forum. Thanks again !

Thanks for your kind words Bill.

The PGCA is a great organization with a whole lot of knowledgeable and generous people. As time goes by you will meet some of them and strike up lifetime friendships.

Welcome!!

I have had Malcolm do case coloring for me on several fox guns, a few Parkers and some other various projects. Good guy. Glad to see your project turned out well. I am sure it is exactly what you were looking for in a custom gun.
