After a long, cold winter followed by a hot-cold-hot-wet spring then the same for summer here in central Ohio, my 1893 Parker GH project is now completed. The barrels are back home, looking top-shelf fantastic, reunited with the recheckered fore-end, mullered border, all lines recut with fresh shellac, and the cleaned stock/receiver. This was a fun project and now it's back in the safe until autumn.
Barrel refinishing work by Louis Rotelli, Classical Restoration. Lou does fantastic work, using only hand polishing to preserve all engraving. This is the second barrel set Lou has done for me, the first being my 1895 Lefever G.(Stock repair, Yikes, this forum). I could not be more pleased with Lou's work. Take a look at the beautiful D grade Damascus pattern on these tubes.
Here are a few photos to close out this thread.
Pheasants starting in September and woodcock in November await. Quail to follow next April. To all who helped with advice and encouraging comments along the journey, my hearty thank you.
