The points at the cor ers of the dovetail are pretty thin. And the smaller the frame size, the shorter the dollshead is. So there is less surface to absorb the shock of the kickers hitting the plate.

I can't envision a good cure for that other than the suggested stop screw.

I want to thank everyone who posted idea's on how to fix my problem. Last week I sent the gun to Brad Bachelder for repair. When it comes back (in about six weeks) I will let everyone know how it turned out.

Earlier this year, my 28 Ga Reproduction had the dolls-head extension come loose, and I thought it probably couldn't be fixed, until I read a comment from Brad Bachelder.
Long story short; I sent it to Brad..........he fixed it........I shoot it all the time now, and no more problems.
Here's to Brad!

Here is my update on having the 28 gauge fixed. (got it back sooner than I thought I would)
Picked up the gun today. Since I live only a couple hours away I was able to go to Brad's business to get it. Brad personally reviewed the work with me and I am very satisfied. Since the fix is to the ejectors on the barrel, and that I have a two barrel set, he inspected the other barrel and said it looked ok but that I should keep an eye on it before it fails. I will probably sent it to him next winter for the fix. He even checked out some other potential problems that can plague a reproduction. At a very reasonable price I have a gun I can use again without fear of failure. A big thanks to Brad!

Please take picture of the screw stop installed and your reactions after you shoot it and if you think the ejector kick out the shells as well, I know his fix is the best

I too am getting 3 28repro barells done and 3 more the next time as I get my shipping case back from Bill

You title this thread, 'Frustrated with Repair Work'.

My Repro has been in the repair shop, for nearly 3 years .....

( am a very 'easy going' sorta fella. Lol )

I can not imagine waiting 3 years for a repair. If you have a gun in a shop that long for a repair, not some fine custom gun job there is a good chance the Smith lacks skill to be working on your Parker. Too many real good quality guys to choose from.
Many good Gun Smiths understandably will have a backlog of work, but a 3 year wait runs up a big red flag to me that something is just not right.

Get your gun out of that shop right now.

If it is within a day's driving time you should go there personally. Give the guy a heads up and tell him when you'll be there, but be firm.
