    Ray Barns at Money Maker Guns would be able to repair. I have had work done by him and was happy with the work and cost.

    Butch, Years ago I had a rib on a Browning Pigeon manufactured in 1932 come loose at the muzzle end. I sent it to Briley for repair and they did a great job. Good luck, Bob

    Go one line, salt cured stock repair. I believe it is Browns Gun shop that specializes in Browning repair. Moneymaker can do great work, personal experiences also show they can do HORRIBLE work. Simmons may still be in the rib business, they used to install all Win. ribs. Olathe, Ks.

    Prop it open without bending it, toothpicks work good. Clean with rubbing alcohol. Spead hitemp RTV gasket sealer under, remove picks and clamp with rubber bands. Worked great on my 101. Don't use super glue or epoxy. You need the flexibility and heat resistance.

    What kind of Browning O/U do you have?

    A Superpose will have the rib soft soldered on it's full length, whereas the Citori has the posts silver soldered and a floating rib installed.
