Can anyone tell me exactly how the forend wood comes off of a belgium Browning over and under, it is my wifes gun left to her by her father, I pulled the lever and it just seems to slide back and fourth, and I don't want to break anything. It was made in 1961, I appreciate any help, Norm

Hello Norm , The wood does not seperate from the barrel assembly . With your fingertip ,pull back on the release, then pull down on the release, now slide the forend forward, all of this will be done while the barrel's are in battery with the reciever. The metal piece should pivot down. Once this is done you can seperate the barrel's from the reciever. Do not force anything! Jeff

One more note, If anyone has a 3 or 4 barrel set with one forearm , the forend and forend iron will come off normally . Jeff

When you open the latch you will see a screw under (inside) it. When you remove this screw a small plate will come out with it. Now the forend will slide off over the end of the barrels.

Not the best idea, but it can be done.

If you ever have a need to remove the forend completely...be VERY careful!!....the wood to metal fit on the Belgian built guns is extremly precise.

ED, More specifics are need to help with an accurate estimate of value. What grade, what condition,lenght of barrel's and chokes will help. Should be a round knob long tang gun which helps and is to early to be a salt gun. Jeff

Try to pull the forend down and away from the barrels as you slide it forward...you will notice a lot of Belgian Brownings have unsightly bluing wear at the front of the forend as owners have removed/replaced the forend and caused the forend to damage the barrel bluing. It is always sad to see a really nice Browning with this unsightly bluing damage. Ed
