Guns XI

Yet another Family Firearm:

It's my dad's Parker-Hale .270. Of course, it's mine now.

Really a beautiful rifle, but as seen below, the stock is cracked. Perhaps someone out there can point me in the direction I need to go to make it right again.

I only fired her on one outing, and the scope came loose from its mounts. I was too worried about the cracked stock to try more than just a few shots anyway.

Somewhere I have a portrait of my dad with this rifle and also some pics of him in his Jager outfit with some of the critters he got with it in Germany. I'll post them if/when I come across them.
