This is a Parker Repro, not a Parker, correct? I have seen a lot of them with really beautiful wood and several that have runout in the wrist. Examine the grain structure through the wrist before attempting a bend. A friend of mine with a 20g. Parker Repro, with a beautiful stock, had it break through the wrist under normal recoil. Jim Greenwood was able to make an invisible repair, but it takes the wind out of your sails when you fire the gun and then find you have the action, barrels, and forearm in one hand and the buttstock in the other.
