    I have a problem with my BT-99,Recently at a shoot I noticed that after I shot and tried to break open the gun, It felt like it was glued together! Normally it opens with ease,What could the problem be???It shouldn't take so much force to open the gun!PJ

    Joe. I shoot one. Two things. your firing pin could be hanging up and/or you are having rust issues in your receiver r3egion. Remove the stock and inspect. common for BT99s to be all rusted up when yo uget the stock off. I cleaned the rust thouroughly form mine and lubed the interior with RIG. No longer commerially available, but should be a lot of substitute products in grease form to use.

    Usually these problems are firing pins not receding back in the recvr and caused by hang up rust or broken.weak return springs.

    Make sure you grease the forend where it mates to the receiver.

    The one I had had metal transfer because of a lack of lubrication.

    My neighbor bought one almost new in the box and it was showing signs of transfer of metal.

    poacherjoe---With all do respect, if you are unsure on how to take the stock off i'm not sure you should be doing this yourself.----Matt

    I think the reason for the question is due to the design of the stock with the adjustable comb.

    Due to the "hardware" for the adjustment system, a typical wrench or screwdriver isn't an option.

    On mine, you have to take the comb off, then use the 5 mm allen wrench, that came with the gun, to get on the stock bolt. The allen wrench they provide with the gun is 9 1/2" long, it needs to be to reach the stock bolt, nothing else will reach on the adjustable comb stock.

    "I shot 200 rds today with no problems."

    Thats good.

    I wish my new BT-99, with less than 7,000 rounds through it was trouble-free :(

    I like the BT but I think I got an Monday morning ot Friday afternoon gun.
