Default Barrel hook or roll joint

When a Parker gets off face, is there a tendency for the wear to be concentrated more on the hook or the roll joint, or is there no real tendency?

Thanks.

The joint is case hardened and the hook is not. If that suggests anything.

Russ Bickell tightened my 2-frame DH beautifully several years ago by welding up my hook and precision cut it for a perfect tight fit. According to Russ he didn't do any work on the roll joint but I suspect he would have polished it.

Do you mind if I ask about what that cost you? Iím looking at a GH needing to be tightened up a hair.

How many thousandths larger than stock are the two oversized roll joints you sell?

That was a long time ago and he did other work for me as well, but I believe that part of the work was $450 or $500.

Unfortunately, Russ passed on about five or six years ago.

Original joints that I have removed from guns and measured vary in size. Anywhere from .535" Dimeter to .538" overall Diameter. The oversized joints that I offer are in .540", .545" and .550" diameters.

Hi Bill,
I used to have one I got from Galazan, but gave to someone that needed it at the time. Are yours still available - I have a 32" DHE Trap in need of one.
- thanks - Dave Cancilla

“A hair”?

Is the lever full left and the barrels still loose? Have you determined that it is the joint and not the lock bolt?

I'm currently using brass shim stock to put the barrels 'on face', but the lever was a tiny bit left of center so I put the wedge (I ordered it with the roll hook) in the barrels. The lever is a little far right, but I'll finish that once I have the jointing correct. The gun was refinished when I bought it, looked very nice with great stock dimensions, the mechanical issues I can deal with. I can make a new roll joint - but it would be easier to start out with an oversize replacement. - take care - Dave
