1886 Parker Bro's 10ga. Shotgun
Gun is actually nicer than I expected... There are more stress cracks than described but not much more trouble to repair... Shipping was fine on Cowan's part... UPS could have broken the gun into three parts and packed in egg crate foam making a smaller package... Bubblewrap and somewhat loose in the box is not good... No damage but more likely with the way it was packed... Also, UPS shoved it on my porch leaving a foot hanging off which got wet with rain... Still no damage... Again, no fault of Cowan's... Very pleased with the gun and Cowan's despite UPS fumbling...

Best in class auction house
Delighted with the quality of photo's for each listing and accurate descriptions. A timely response to inquiry for additional information. I contacted Cowans after processing payment and the item purchased was shipped immediately. Plus great job of double boxing/packing. I will not hesitate to bid on items in future Cowans auctions.
