    I would check the link I posted above. Good read about salt guns.

    Browning used salt wood on guns made in Belgium from 1966 to 1971. Check out Art's video. Never heard of a BT-99 with salt wood.

    Checking with the experts, some graded BT's had salt cured wood, not too many,
    but definitely some. Also some Safari rifles and some t bolt 22.s.

    Salt wood guns are no bargain. Replacing wood and refinishing all the metal is expensive. There is absolutely no fix for salt wood except replacement. Kinda like having a few cat turds in your stew, no way to save it no matter how beautiful the wood is.

    Seem to remember a video of Art breaking a salt wood stock in two so that it could not be reused.

    I put a stock with a stuck recoil plate screw in the freezer and it came out without breaking.
