Default Parker VH 16Ga. on "0" frame finally returns from repair!!

Friends, I have not posted since November of last year. I have been waiting for the return of my VH since then. I was the one who needed a new forearm because the old one was broke in half. Since it was originally redone by DelGrego I sent it back to them for the repair. I think it came out very well. The fitment and function of the gun is like new. This gun weighs right at about 6lbs. Should be a great upland gun! I plan on getting the factory letter from the collectors group here very soon. Sorry about the crummy pictures I do not have a good area to take them. Have a great evening!

You should join the PGCA to avail yourself of the many benefits of membership. It’s only $40 annually and that’s about the cheapest deal out there for what you get for your money. It’s the price of an inexpensive meal for two....

Mr. Malovic tells us in his opening post that the gun was “originally redone by Del Grego” and those colors certainly look like early Del Grego cyanide case colors.
