Brad Bachelder installed a silvers pad on a 20 ga Parker Trojan that he fully restored for me. Looks nice and stays on my shoulder

The Silver pad is still in the packaging. I haven't found a need for it just yet. However, there is a Titanic barreled Parker BH on GB that could use one. That Grade 5 could also use some TLC throughout, though a rather expensive project. Perhaps someone here is in an adoptive mood. Some Parker's just need and rightfully deserve some help. I have no affiliation:

The base for the original pad is still on that gun. As long it is not damaged, it is a perfect candidate for cleaning up and putting only new rubber on. The stock on that gun looks like it may be not very shootable for most. I love the engraving on the side of the gun.

I especially love the engraving on the floor plate.

That is indeed nice engraving on that gun. Brian is right about those stock dimensions.

I like that pheasant engraved on the floor plate. Wouldn't 1902 be early for pheasants engraved on Parkers?

Pheasants were first hunted in Oregon in 1892 and on the first day of the Oregon season some 50,000 pheasants were killed.
