Very nice Brian. I find it interesting in that most of the upgrades in Parkers or Foxes, that the person chooses to make it a straight grip. I just love straight grips especially in the smallbores.

The barrels are at Gounets now for breech engraving. I am to pick them up from him at Hausmans and the gun will be displayed there in its current state. Then when I get home it will all come apart and go to him for the rest of the engraving.

I did the barrel engraving first so that I can send them off for finishing while the frame is out for engraving.

Hey Brian, I was looking at some old posts just learning and enjoying a break and ran across this post on your C grade. This is making a beautiful gun. You may recall the high grade repros that were sold by Galazan in the white. I always wondered if we should have picked up one. If you took my VHE 12 that we are working on and say wanted to make an AHE out of it, how much egg money would it take to make a nice one out of it?

Well, the frame and all replated parts are off to Gournet for engraving. I am opting for the very tasteful Rondel pattern. Something very much like the photo below. I will be giving Geoffroy his own artistic license on the animals used on the gun. As long as they look like original parker engraving.
