"Our hope is that this would help prevent our slides from purposely or accidentally being passed as the real thing. I have discussed this with Tracie Hill and he feels that this is the right thing to do to avoid the vintage market being flooded by fakes."
This is a most commendable policy. Are Doug Richardson's barrels and receivers marked in such a way to determine they originated from his Malibu, California shop? From all accounts his work is of such a high quality that it could easily be mistaken for the real thing if there were no identifying stamps identifying the parts as built by Dour R.

Thank You! Unfortunately I have never seen any of Doug R's work. I have only heard good things about him and look foward to seeing some examples.

That is good to know that Doug R. does identify his wood with his mark. I assume he also does the same with his barrels and receivers?
