We will probably have the gun at Pheasant Fest if people want to see it. There will likely be about 28,000 people there. Spaces 1802, 04, 06. Thirty feet of exhibit space. Plenty of interesting Parkers.

Excellent pictures Bruce - Thank You.

Can you comment on the stock head where the wood would normally have been relieved to allow for the hammers - it appears that pieces were artistically glued in there or was the buttstock possibly replaced... any thoughts on that?

I would have never thought anything like this existed. Will you be bringing it to the southern?

For all the wonderful workmanship, I am surprised that the maker used such an ugly, oversized safety button. Otherwise, to me, the gun is exquisite.

I was able to locate the gentleman that has the mate to this gun that was in Vegas. I have a call into him. I will pass on any info I obtain.

That would be great David. It would be interesting to know if both guns were done by the same person. Keep us posted please.

What a tremendous amount of work to convert a Parker into a Lefever. Ingenious but in a way unfortunate for a nice Hammer Gun. I am curious to know how many of these exist.
