Default Ejector timing

I have a Parker ejector gun that sometimes doesn't eject properly on opening, and then pops when the action starts to close.
Is this a big deal to fix?

First , clean it. The usual cause is dirt and gummy oil

I believe the most benign fix I have seen on a Parker ejector gun was performed by Larry DelGrego when he removed a shaving of wood which corrected a problem similar to yours. His point was that wood expands and contracts as moisture content changes.

Del Grego is definitely the place to send a Parker with ejector malfunctions if cleaning doesn't do it. Whatever you do, don't attempt to disassemble it yourself.

Thanks Bruce.
This is an immaculately clean Turnbull restoration. Almost never fired, but it has been sitting in a safe for many many years. Might have some oil getting gummy.

I'd just check the ejector rods first off. The retaining screw may be a tad tight or the rods gummed up. Very simple fix.

It's a near mint condition 1906 BHE. I am very reluctant to get anywhere near this gun with a screwdriver.
Anything I can do from the outside?

I wouldn’t squirt anything into the mechanism.

If the ejectors are sticking someone is going to have to go at it with a screwdriver at some level.
