No. The butt was messed with so much that the buttplate was thinned and also reduced in height greatly. So a lot of the toe, where the serial number usually is, was removed. But the wood surface under the butt was unaltered and the screws were original and matched the plate. And the heads were engraved the same as the screws on the action. What survived of the plate was pretty rusty and pitted. The only remnants of engraving on the plate was At the spur and heel, it was faint and was definitely Parker factory engraving.

And if I didnt say it already to you Jay, thank you for becoming the caretaker of this gun and allowing me to help make it right, or as right as it can be. So far they have not figured out a way to stretch barrel lengths.

Wow. That's some really nice work and brought back to the original dimensions. Hope you find that second set of barrels some day Jay. Fabulous work Brian!

Thanks Brian for posting pictures of the butt transplant process. This was a fun project and it was great working with Brian on it. I feel like this A grade got the restoration it deserved. I enjoyed seeing this gun brought back to being something special.

I am looking forward to shooting this gun more this fall. At sporting clays it doesn’t kick much with 1 1/8oz of shot and 19 grains of Red Dot…and it is a lot of fun!

I got out for 50 rounds with this beauty today. I had only shot it a few times when it was first finished, so I had fun walking around the sporting clays course this afternoon. Even with 4 inches cut off the barrels it felt like an Improved Cylinder gun(I will pattern it sometime soon). It shot 1 1/8oz RSTs very well and I was able to figure most stations out. I hit some long targets that pleasantly surprised me. A great afternoon
