    My BT-100 has a difficult forearm. I have to really pull on the release lever to get it to release to the point I'm afraid I'll do some damage sometime. Lube is not the issue. In addition the BACK screw/bolt has a tendancy loosen up between 100-150 rounds. Tightening it up has no bearing on the tightness problem. Any answers I hope? Thanks, Dave

    Ahh more and more people are having this problem with browning products, however yours is the first 100 I have heard of having this problem.

    My BT-99 Golden Clay also had this issue, the screw/bolt loosens up enough that it works upward to stop you from taking the forarm off.

    Talk to Rod of Rod's Custom stocks he knows of some ways to fix this problem, I had my first one loosen up to the point it put a hair line crack in my forearm. The guys at Umbergers Stock fixed that and the crack look and holds great, and now this year, yep the other screw/bolt loosened up. Mine second bolt/screw had actually broke.

    Rod has a way to fix this and I recommend his work highly.

    hi dave, most likely the fit between the forearm lug on the bbl and the latch in the forearm is too tight. just a little fitting will releave this problem.

    the screw coming loose can be fixed, if it is a machine screw, by cleaning the screw and the threaded part in the forearm with alcohol then a little blue loctite when assembling. if the back screw is a wood screw a small amount of epoxie jell in the hole before assembly will help.

    good luck doug hubbart gunsmith (573)286-9905
