Default New member w/ 2 "New" Parkers!!

New member from Maine here, and just picked up my first 2 Parkers!
A PH 12ga w/Damascus made in 1896, and a 20ga Trojan made in 1927!
Love both of them, and can't wait to shoot them.
I have two questions on the Damascus PH however.
1. I understand that I need to shoot light loads with this type of barrel.
I found RST Lite 1oz #6 shot at LLBean. Is this suitable?
2. The Damascus barrel has 2 small dents about the size of a pin head on the left barrel. 1 about half way down and the other right before the end of the barrel. I'd like to have these taken out. Can anyone recommend someone, hopefully here in Maine that knows how to do this?
If I can figure out how to post a photo of the dents, I'll do it.
thank you
Steve

Hi Steve - Welcome.
Those RST loads are perfect.

Try Steve Dalzell right there in southern Maine. He is on his own now but was David Trevallion’s protege’ for seveal years.

Where in Maine are you?

Hmmm, Brewer huh? That’s a long ride from Steve Dalzell...

Give the guys at Wildwood Guns in China and get a recommendation from them where to take it. They usually have some nice doubles in their shop.

I may have found him. A Yacht designer in Kennebunkport?

Unfortunately, the number I found in White pages on line had been disconnected.
Any chance you have a number, or know someone who would?
