Default Damascus GH 12ga

Recently bought a Gh 12ga with damascus barrels.Actually my first Parker and have caught the bug for sure with two more purchased shortly after.Anyhow back to the subject.This gun is in decent shape and the price was right.Barrels were worn and I decided to have them redone.
I contacted Breck Gorman after seeing a recent post with pictures of his work.We met at the Southern and handed the barrels off to Breck.
Breck had a great turn around on the work which I think will change after more see his work.
Here are some before pictures.

I got to get better at taking pictures of guns the pictures don't do justice to the work or the barrels.
New look doesn't help with my recent Parker infection either.

I am having Dan Cullity fit a set of damascus barrels to one of my Parkers. When he's done, I may contact Mr. Gorman and have him refinish these barrels. His work in your barrels is very nice.

Breck also did a set for me recently, and they turned out great. Was waiting for whole gun photos to post.
