Allen, it is a little like going back in time when you go to the shop. The Del Grego’s have that direct connection with the factory and the guns. All the parts Larry used to make my gun mechanically new again were from the factory. I meant to title this thread “Good For Another Hundred Years” because that is what it is meant to do. Imagine, 2118 and our guns still in service. Wonder what they will be worth then?

That's exactly why I chose to have them work on my VH20. I wanted to experience that connection at least once with a Parker that I regularly hunt with. It was my way of keeping the Parker legacy alive.
