Did Parker Pages have a write-up on that gun or am I remembering Double Gun Journal?

Yes, I believe it was John's grandfather's gun.

Right - I don't recall a Parker Pages article specifically on that gun but I believe there was a DGJ article on it. I do remember John posted the history and provenance, extensive pictures of the gun, his great-grandfather, great-grandmother, and the dozens upon dozens of trophies taken with it, on the PGCA Forum almost ten years ago.

It would be very nice if John would do that again as a treat to the old-timers in this organization but, as well, for the hundreds of new members who have never seen it up close and personal.

Or they can see it up close in person if they go to the New Years Day shoot at Major Waldron's.

Amazing gun.

That is a nice gun I would like to see all the engraving. It's a pin lifter no? Beautiful feather stock. ch

The stock is original. The guard is VERY interesting. Are you able to post some additional photos focusing on just that?

The sculpting of the frame forward of the lock plates is unusual - I've not seen one like that before.
