Default 20 ga. Hammer Lifter restoration

Hello Everyone, This is Dean Hanson. My Brother Matthew Hanson is the computer guy and is helping me share the four year restoration project of this beautiful 20 gauge lifter. I plan to write a story for the Parker pages in the future, as its quite a story. Feel free to PM and or comment. Lastly, a few folks I need to thank, in no particular order. Matthew Hanson, Breck Gorman, Central Michigan Gun Smithing(Kip), Brian Dudley, Chad Batorski, Jeff Kuss, Eric Eis, Gary Carmichael Sr., Dean Romig, Charlie Herzog Sr., Brian Hornacek, Mike Franzen, Randy Roberts, Tom Wooden, Chuck Bishop, Ed Morgan, and last but not least, t.he man who knows the whole story, Jim Dispagno. Thanks to anyone and all who helped me with this incredible project.

Be Well

Very special and rare Parker. The barrel steel and “M” stamp is a story that needs to be told.
