    Hey guys, I've got a Wyoming Arms Parker 10MM that I picked up used. From what I've read this model was kinda hit & miss (mostly miss) in terms of reliability.

    I've tried three factory loads, and one hand load, and all fail to extract consistently (or at all!).

    Can anyone recommend a gunsmith local to the Portland area that's might be familiar with this gun's issues?

    Thanks and safe shooting!

    Thanks for the offer!

    I'm beginning to think it may be a recoil spring issue.

    Now where to find one (Checked Numrich & Wolff).

    #1 clean chamber, to include wrapping 000 steel wool, soaked in oil/Hoppes chamber brush and chucked-up in drill-motor
    Try nickel plated ammo
    send gun to me w/$2000 and I'll solve your problem(s)

    Think I've pretty much solved the issue - this gun only cycles properly with full power loads.

    I only have a few boxes of Norma 170 & 200gr factory rounds, and for some reason didn't want to shoot those.

    Working up handloads, I started at the low end, and worked towards the middle - no load worked reliably.

    Went shooting yesterday with 15 different loads (Longshot, 700X, #7, Bullseye, UNIQUE, CSB-1) all WARM to WARMER.

    Any load moving a 155gr 1,275fps+ (or 180gr 1,250+) and the gun functioned perfectly.

    Gun's snappy, and I'm happy :D

    Yeah, I think 10mm loads were a bit more robust back then ;)
