Default Need Help Fixing 28ga

My 28ga Reproduction is broken. The Ejector stop in the doll's head split. Anybody know of anyone who can make/replace this piece?

thank you
Patrick

PGCA Member, Joe Breda maybe? He'll need the old one probably.

He's not on our Links page of the Home page but he advertises in Parker Pges.

The "fix" is to install a stop screw in the extractor like is done in extractor Parkers. This has been discussed here before. Trying to fix the stop at the end of the rib is an exercise in frustration.

Patrick,

If you have time, this is an interesting thread on the 28 gauge repro ejector stop issue http://parkerguns.org/forums/showthr...ght=Stop+screw.

This one looks like the actual stop plate gave out. Usually it is the dovetail in the extension that fails on these guns instead. Likely that will give out in time after the plate is replaced.

Like bill said, the only real “fix” is to put a stop screw in the bottom. Best to just do that now before the dovetail gets completely mangled, creating a cosmetic issue.

Would Dudley agree with me that a small bore Parker Repro that is never dry fired without empty shells or snap caps in place should probably never have this problem? I will install the stop screws on my 28s only after I have a problem, not as a preemptive fix. I will never dry fire my .410s, for any reason. In one of these threads concerning the stop plate problem, I suggested that Parker Brothers should have used the ejector shaft stop screw as part of the original design.

I dont think that dry firing has anything to do with it. The dovetails in the extension are just too small. Smaller than the original guns (which do not fail like this on the norm, to my knowledge).

I don’t dry fire w/out snap caps for the very same reason Mr. Murphy (Bill) eluded to. The heavier the snap cap, the better IMO.

Brian, I used the incorrect terminology. It is the use of the ejectors without empties in place after dry firing that I was suggesting is the problem. Thanks for replying.

I had to replace one on a 1 1/2 frame 12. Found the hardest spring steel I had and widened the dovetail a bit as that is where the failure occurred. I also shortened the stop notch on the ejector a bit as it was tight against it when gun was opened. No problems since then.
