Chances are, they can help.
I just did that! Kirk said to "bundle the gun up and get it to me, and stop monkeying around with it"

I had an early 28 VH on an 0 frame. The rim recess was shallow by todays standards. There were few modern 28 gauge shells that would allow the gun too close. I purchased a reamer and fixed the problem. It was common to the early 28 gauge Parkers. So common that I ended up lending the reamer to a number of PGCA members.

Harry, do you know if that was ever a problem on the 00-frame 28’s?

I have had the same experiences as Harry C with insufficient rim recess. My fix for getting the gun to open was to place the receiver and barrels in a well padded vice ( bottom of receiver and top of barrels at the breach) and carefully and slowly tighten. I often would hear a click, the top lever would move free and when removed the gun would open. I now have a complete set of reamers.

Dean,

I do not know if the problem was fixed before moving to the 00 frame for the 28 gauge. My thought is that it was.

I had the same problem with a mint 12 ga. Parker. Some brands of new shells would work fine, some not. Some manufacturers shells had a radius between the rim and the side wall of the brass. Those would not work. I had a hard time closing the gun and opening it. Those shells that had almost a 90 degree angle between the rim and the wall would work fine. The rim recess was depend and the problem was solved.
