Default Parker 216945 10 ga PHE Ejectors

I just wanted to thank everyone for their input to my dilemma. I have arranged to acquire a matched set of the missing parts for the forearm iron from Brian Dudley. The other parts for the breech seem to be intact. Hopefully, I can get Mr. Del Grego to install and adjust them.

Does anyone have a feel for how many Parker 10 gauges with ejectors were made, or how many may still be around? I have talked to several people and looked extensively. No one seems to remember hearing about one or ever seeing one.

Thanks again,
Vance

It is heart warming to see another Parker come back. Did you speak with Brian Dudley about doing the work for you? I have been disappointed by the current work produced by the Del Greco shop.

Yes, I did. He said he was covered up and wouldn't be able to get to it for some time. When I first spoke to Del Grego several days before I found the parts, he didn't seem to be very interested in doing the work. I believe his biggest complaint was that a "pile of parts weren't matching" and from his experience, it was a tremendous amount of work to fit and time them. Hopefully, that is a non issue now!

What about Turnbull?

I have personally seen a 36” 10g ejector gun with fluid steel barrels. It was a GHE if I remember correctly.

Good to know there is at least another 10 with ejectors out there! Mine is 32" with Parker Steel barrels. I have an 8 ga NH w/twist steel 38" barrels on a #6 frame. Tight, clean, beautiful nice wood, but very dark. I haven't touched it.

I’m not sure how many 10 gauge ejector guns were actually made. I own a 10 gauge GHE with 36” fluid steel barrels. 3 1/2” Chambers.
Good luck with getting the ejectors working on your gun.

There are a bunch of ejector 10 gauges out there, mostly PHE grades. We don't know much about them because the stock book records are missing for nearly the entire period ejector tens were made. Too bad, but that's the way it is.

My 10 ga PHE has what I would call "excellent basics". Of course, most Parkers do! If I could just find somebody worthy, to install the forearm ejector parts and touch-up the engraving a little, mine would rate an "extremely good to excellent". I am putting a "French Polish" type finish on the wood and it is coming along very well.
