Default Hello from Nevada!

Well the shotgun got passed through three generations to me. I do not believe it has ever been shot. 1902 16 gauge, frame 1, D4, grade 2 G. Looking forward to learning more about it. Donít think I will be chasing quail with it in the sand and rocks.

Gorgeous gun in what appears to be fine original condition. Join the PGCA for $40.00 annually and get a research letter for another $40.00. You can get a letter for $100.00 without joining but the benefits of membership are beyond the cost. Great guys with a wealth of knowledge and a great place to find many more fine Parkers and other stuff for sale offered to members only. Good luck and WELCOME

Wow, gorgeous gun!! And good advise from Jim. We would love to see more pictures. Passed down thru 3 generations, that is special also. I have a Grade2/GH damascus 16 also on an O frame. Wonder why they never used it. Welcome Gary

Default 1902 Parker

Thank you. The first owner was not a hunter, got it as a presentation, and held on to it until the Ď60s. The next two were hunters, but were concerned about the barrels being hazardous to health and had good field guns anyway. She is a beauty.

That is the nicest smallbore Damascus GH grade I have seen in sixty years of fooling with Parkers. It is a true benchmark gun.
