Originally built in 1920, this 12 gauge Parker BHE shotgun came to us with close to a century of use and a cracked stock. Firearm restoration work will include a new buttstock (with a skeleton butt plate and gold oval), checkering, full metal polish, engraving re-cut, and our signature metal finishes.
