Indeed it is Bill - my mistake. I guess when it came to marking grades in stocks' inletting the difference in checking and quality of walnut between grades 0 and 1 was inconsequential.

Craig and I had a #6 frame show and tell at the Northeast Shoot a few years ago. Most #6 frame guns don't get out much, so our show and tell went over quite well.

Bill I always enjoy seeing your big guns and sharing my examples with others who share our passion for the big waterfowlers. Hopefully we can do it again in the future. Craig

Charlie, you need to hold Craig's Big 10 to really appreciate it. Yes, it's HEAVY but just like a smaller lighter Parker, it comes to life between the hands. It mounts and swings well and it obeys your command.... except when you try to stop its swing...

Just to end this thread, I measured up 116794 with Galazan bore and wall thickness gauges. Bores .780/.780, chokes .042/.042, Min wall .071/.070. I will post pictures during the season with the big gun in action.
