    My guess is; the question would be-------how do you make it stop doing that?

    Contact Browning - mine was just over 2 years old and doing the same thing. Browning repaired it no charge. Of coarse if you ever delt with the Browning service center count on 8 to 12 weeks before you see the gun again. Tim

    Maybe just a new top lever spring will help. If not, most likely the locking bolt is worn...or wasn't fit properly from the start.

    Top lever spring has likely weakend ....about 10 bucks for a new spring from Brownells. Easy 5 minute changeout. When you store it in the case trip the lever so the spring does not stay under tension. I've seen several BT's do the same.
