    I have a couple BT99 and an unsingle combo and would like to disassemble them for cleaning. I have no idea how to break these down. Does anyone have a resource to purchase maintenance books for these arms?
    Thanks, Dave B.

    Removing the stock reveals all you should need to clean without any further disassembly. Take the recoil pad off, use a large blade screwdriver to remove the stock bolt. Carefully pull stock to the rear to remove. Caution should be used when re-attaching the stock to not over torque the stock bolt or you could cause the stock to crack.

    Unsingle combo ( XT ) might use an allen wrench to remove the stock bolt. Also be careful for adjustable comb -

    Depending on the age of your gun's you will need a large flat blade screwdriver to remove older model buttstocks, or an allen wrench for newer model's. A perazzi buttstock removal tool works great. They are the same size as the newer bt's.

    In regards to cracking the stock when tightening (or sometimes loosening) the stock bolt, it is advisable to have the receiver secured in a padded vice to prevent this from happening. That way, you are directly holding the item that the stock bolt screws into.

    The buttstock on the Browning is strong, but it is not designed to handle a lot of rotational stress at the receiver. Hence the cracks you sometimes see right behind the tang.

    You can also wrap the blade of the screwdriver with masking tape, so the blade stays centered. HMB

    Look for a a BT 99 Field Service Manual. The trigger housing has to be removed for a thorough cleaning.

    on my citori, i drop a length of 3/4" copper pipe into the stock to keep the screwdriver from getting wedged between the stock and bolt.
