The bottom screws are sideways. Must be worth a lot, that's the first time I've seen that particular configuration

That's OK if you are selling the gun as a shooter. But a FrankenParker being sold as a special order for $3K? That's over the top.

The best way Iíve found to fix these fixer up guns is to put them up for sale and let the next man deal with it ! If Iím not mistaken Iíve gotten all the fixer uppers I had dispersed to other folks .

My kind of gun, a gun without barrels. Atlas barrels? European proofs from what I see. What happens to the Damascus barrels on these Atlas barrel conversions?
