    Just curious. There should be three screws, one wood screw and two machine threaded screws that go into the forearm locking bracket on outside of the forearm. Are all three coming loose? And have you tried lock-tite on the machine thread screws. Again, just curious. This has been kind of a known problem on new BT's, but I haven't experienced it yet on my 2009 model.

    Thanks for the response. I know that Browning doesn't recommend lock-tite. What I have done on my 2009 is use a small drop of medium strength (blue) locktight on the threads of the machine thread screws, and a drop around the head of the wood screw and firmly tightened them. So far I haven't had any problems. However, that's just been my experience and certainly wouldn't advise anyone else what to do with their BT99. Again, thanks for the info.

    Had this same problem .. first my local gunsmith used lock tight did not work at all. Took it to Tom Larkin at thestockshop.net and it was the wood screw. He replaced it with a threaded insert and machine screw and have not had a problem with mine or my wife's BT's since

    If you want to avoid LockTite, use a drop of clear nail polish on the threads. It holds good and is the screw is removable when needed. Just a little more muscle needed.

    Some Locktite is heat sensitive... the nail polish idea is excellent!

    It just shows you, "they don't make them like they used to." I would buy a used 72-74 year before I would buy new. Shot my first 25 with one. They were great guns and still are. The best SBT gun for the money in my opinion. The serial number would end with D27, D37, and D47. I know it does not fix your problem, but they are classics. Jon

    I own a '79 Pigeon and a late model SHOT Show "special" with the laminated stock. Personally, I miss the "ejector", but since the "special" is my "guest" gun, it doesn't affect me and the "extractor" actually creates less confusion for a guest when I instruct.

    Results-wise, they both break birds well... always been an easy gun to learn to shoot!

    regards all,

    Jay

    I had the problem of screws loosening on my BT-99. I used acuglass on the wood screw and blue loctite on the machine screws. No more problems. My wife's BT-99 golden Clays does not seem to have the problem. Bob K
