    OK, My problem is this, I finally got the stock off my BT-99 project gun that I just purchased dirt cheap. What I found made me sick, the internals (springs etc) were covered with rust. I cleaned it the best I could but am not sure that it is good enough. I have decided to have it gone over completely by someone who knows what the heck they are doing and having the springs replaced and it cleaned professionally.

    Who do you guys recommend to do this???? I do not want to send it back to Browning

    Thanks!

    Oscar

    Where ya located Oscar? Some good smiths can do it or You can. Its a problem with some older guns. The old timers bought them they shoot great and well ifn it aint broke they didnt fix em.

    I just tore apart my BT project(1979) gun as I wsa going to redo a paint work, to find 2 broken springs and the pin that holds the ejector broken.


    These guns are work horses and well if it shot before you took it apart all is not lost. A few hours of cleaning and study you can disassemble it yourself and replace. I wont kid you it aint easy, but some Hoppes and KROIL you can clean it back up. Mines all apart heading for a new Flat finish blue job,new springs and fir pin too while its all apart.

    Good luck a good local gunsmith should be able to help.

    The rust in a BT-99 is common. I used Gun Scrubber and a mall brush and cleaned mine up years ago, then sprayed w/Rem Oil and hung it up and let it drip oil out.

    Are there any broken springs you can see? Did it work when you first got it and is it still working? If Yes.

    Put the stock back on it and you are good to go

    Frank, bring the receiver with you next Tuesday, I'll drop it in the ultra-sonic cleaner. It will come out squeaky clean.
