Default New and old.

Here is a recently fully restored VH 12g next to its original wood. Restored for the owner whose grandfather bought the gun brand new. 1383188D-87FB-44C1-8F59-D864560A39C0.jpg

Brian,
Did you rust blue the barrels? They look mighty fine, as well.

Yes. This was one of the last sets that I did. I have decided to hang up rust bluing as a service for a while. I cannot stand polishing barrels. It is too hard on me physically.

I just finished reading your article on the 2023 raffle gun. Absolutely beautiful work. I have a German made shotgun in my office with the same pattern of Damascus on the barrels. Do you know the name of that pattern?
