My thought is you should be able to disengage the hammers/springs. I had a hammer on a CE Fox that broke and I disengaged them both turning the gun into an extractor gun until I could have my hammer welded up.

Thanks Mike. I assume you mean I need to remove the ejector hammer springs.

That would be my thought. I did that on the Fox gun. I never did that to a Parker but I would think it should work. If I’m wrong someone will be sure to chime in.

I read on a different thread that you can put much weaker springs in to power the ejector hammers thereby retaining full travel with very little force which would make shell removal easier with gloves on and keep it from breaking. Now all I need is a couple of weaker springs.

I am not too sure about that.

Some of us, like myself, just like ejectors. I load my 28 ga. shells also and just pop them into my hand. In my opinion, its better than extracting them by hand. Ed Muderlak was totally against ejectors, I'm not sure why.

True, things can go wrong with ejectors, but I only had one Parker with ejector issues, an early GHE. Maybe I'm lucky.

It boils down to a matter of personal preference.'

Did original Parkers have the radius which you created?

Yes they did John - it was the Repros that eliminated the radius. To save manufacturing expense? Or did they just miss that little intricacy... who knows.
