This is a set of Parker barrels that had suffered damage in transit. The right barrel was deeply dented on the underside, about ten inches from the muzzle. It was quite a time-consuming repair, complicated by a lack of barrel wall thickness and having to refinish and blend the repaired area. Due to the barrel wall thickness, I did not want to remove ANY significant amount of material from either the inside or outside of the barrel. This meant that the barrel material had to be "moved" back into its pre-dent condition completely and very, very carefully to conserve what wall thickness was there.
Repaired and ready for refinishing of the repaired area
The repaired area is refinished and blended to the surrounding finish. Yes it CAN be done.
