Good gun alert: a DelGrego redone Parker VH 20 gauge, straight grip…

Refinished shotguns aren’t my thing – most of the time. But this  little 20 gauge Parker caught my eye, and I have to say this: For redone gun, it sure is nice looking double.

The seller says this gun was refinished by Larry DelGrego in the ’70s. The DelGregos are the first family of Parker restoration, and their work is almost as famous as the guns themselves. Larry DelGrego Sr. went into the Parker repair and restoration business in 1955, after learning 22 years of learning his craft at the Parker factory. Today, Larry DelGrego III is carries on the family tradition and turns out first quality work on America’s favorite double barrel shotgun.

Refinishing a SxS like the Parker you see here is an expensive project, and doing right will cost you $3,500+. But as you can see for yourself, when the job is done right, the results can be very nice.

Here’s more info on this shotgun from the seller:
