Just want to reconnect here. I shot her again today, 100 shots and once again the ejectors worked perfectly. Great to see her back after being sidelined for years as what the Dealer called a "problem gun". Today she was high gun in our squad of 8, shooting against 2 Perazzis, 3 Benellis and 2 Brownings - all of them sporting clays competition guns. And especially neat because I drove the Jeep to the Rock today and my shooting glasses were back home in the truck. Used a pair of Rangers that were in my shooting bag - which I did remember to take - but the lenses have an old prescription six years old. After we finished up the guys told me to get rid of the newer glasses.

A couple of gents have asked and here are some stats on the Parker; she weighs 8^2, chambers 2-5/8", chokes I-Mod & Full, LOP 14-1/2". Today's load was 7/8 ounce of 7-1/2's in Gun Club hulls, pushed by Alliant E3 powder at about 1200 speed.

Thanks all. Just to close out here; 500+ shells fired as of yesterday and both ejectors are working fine including the timing of the "kicks" which haven't changed since set up. Done deal.
