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
Jim

Did you try closing the action with the forearm attached and dry firing the gun? Opening it up will recock the ejector. Close the action and then remove the forearm. This should allow the barrel to be removed. If not go to plan B

Barrels not freely releasing from the receiver has nothing to do with ejectors, and occurs on extractor guns also.
With the Fore End Removed you will see the unhooking pin extending out of the front of the receiver. The fore end prevents this pin from protruding, and it, in turn prevents the unhooking slide from allowing the cocking hook, on the barrel from disengaging from the cocking crank. When the fore end is removed, the unhooking pin should move forward, by it's spring. It may be that the unhooking pin, itself is gummed up enough to not fully move forward, but more likely, the unhooking slide itself is also gummed up and not allowing the cocking hook and cocking crank to disengage from each other.
Simply removing the trigger plate will disengage the hook and crank, but if the unhooking slide and pin are dirty, putting it back together, without a thorough cleaning, will get you right back to where you were
If you don't have proper gunsmith's screwdrivers, just send the gun out to Brian or any other competent gunsmith for a good cleaning.

Sent the SBT gun to Brian Dudley. He got the unhooking issue resolved and found that the problem was the cocking hook on the barrel was messed up. someone had been on it riling and altering the shape to where it would not allow it to unhook. He replaced the hook.
Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions.
