With apologies to our own Dean, here are my 32" GHE Barrels fresh from Breck Gorman. And lets just say there is not a finer man to do business with from every perspective. My barrels had been blued and in doing so the engraved "band" around the breeches of the barrels was gone. Breck sent them out and had them re-engraved. I could not be happier with his work and dedication to detail. The last picture is a "before" showing the blue and buffed out engraving. Breck said the top and under rib are also Damascus which he said is not always the case, I guess a lot of them are steel according to Breck.

What a difference Steve! Very nice!

Had they been blued?

The frustration....

My barrels have been sitting literally 1/4 mile from my house since 4:43 this morning.

Yes Dean they had been blued. The last picture is a "before" picture showing the blue and the buffed out engraving.

A day late but by no means a dollar short! I am absolutely delighted!!
10 a.m. delivery.
I included the dime simply as a size reference for the tiny little crolles on these 28 gauge barrels. Actually, the bead is an even better size comparison to the crolles.
