Default How to Remove SBT Barrel?

Is there an easy method to remove the Parker SBT barrel from the action?
Thanks!

You should be able to simply remove the forearm, breach the gun and the barrel comes right off. Just like a double barrel. If itís hanging up, you might try dry firing it and then breach the gun.

Dry fire the gun with the forearm off. Otherwise you will have to recock the ejector hammers manually.

If the barrels won't come off with the fore end off, and the the gun is cocked, part 41, 42, or both are probably gunked up, and a good cleaning will cure it.
If you find your ejector has tripped, many offer methods to recock it, by pushing the ejector hammer back, which can risk bruised knuckles, or worse. Simply take the barrels back off, put the fore end back on the barrels are push the ejector back in. Let the ejector re-cock the ejector hammer.

Personally, I hate ejectors.

Ejectors are a wonderful thing while hunting, however not so helpful on a Trap line in my humble opinion.

Have not yet been able to take the SBT barrel off of the action. I do not want to damage this nice Parker.
What is the best way to clean these with barrels still on the action?
“If the barrels won't come off with the fore end off, and the gun is cocked, part 41, 42, or both are probably gunked up, and a good cleaning will cure it.”
Thanks and Happy 4th Of July to all
