I seem to recall Lawrence telling me ten years ago when I visited the shop to drop off a Parker that they worked on Fox's as well.

Does Bachelder still do bone and charcoal? They did great work when Brad was alive, I have not had any thing to be done lately, so do not know if Parker is still doing as his dad did, gary

They have had a Parker Reproduction of mine to redo the case colors on for 4 years and I can't get them to get it done. I would be careful sending anything to them at this point.

It sounds like you need to demand the return of it NOW! in any state. Started or not.

When I had Brad recolor one of my Parkers, I recall Brad telling me that he alone did the case colors in the shop based on his own recipe. Brian is right tho. If they have had a Parker for that amount of time without the requested work not yet done, it's time to call them and pull the order. Best of luck

I had a gun with them for two and a half years for what Brad told me woukd be 6 months.
I ran out of of patience too.
We know that we are not their only customers and we don’t really want to push them for fear of them rushing our job and getting sub par work but two years is more than enough time for most any job. So I said I want it back… now.
They shipped it out but it went to the wrong address. I called and asked where the heck it was. They told me the address they sent it to… in Missouri. I live in Massachusetts and I asked them why it went to Mussouri and they said that’s the address I gave them…

Oh, incidentally, the job was done perfectly…
