Default AHE coming back to life

This old gal was in disrepair, worn engraving, stock broke in half at the wrist, screws were a mess. Itís starting to come back alive.

The work is being done by Dawe, Dubois and Lemieux. A few examples of work they have done for me.

I didn't get the name, or forgot it, of the fellow Chris sent my skeleton butt plate, trigger guard and screws to but I was very pleased with the result.

You're in rare company Craig... a lot of folks wonder why the heck there are deer or elk engraved on a bird gun. I could never figure it out but I do appreciate the art.
