I saw a 12 ga. Topper Deluxe Classic in the local gun shop today. It looked just like the regular Partner shotgun, with a plastic rib on the barrel. I wasn't too impressed with the rib, but it had a nice Walnut stock and forend. The finish looked good, and the wood on this particular unit had some figure in the buttstock. It is a low comb that would work well with iron sighted guns. I don't know NEF's price, but it sure looks better than the pallet wood.
