2 weeks ago I dropped off my Browning BT-99 at the place I bought it (used) to have my forend repaired (the 2 screws sheared off). To me it seemed like a simple fix 2 new screws. So tonight I stopped in to see how the repairs were coming and they told me they had to send the forend to Browning. The guy said it didn't look good as far as a timely repair and would not even warrent a guess as to how long it would take. I was just wondering if any other people have had any browning factory work done and if so how long will it take? I have a sneaking suspicion that gun is gone for the trap season. Fortunately I just bought a BT-100 that I will use but now I am left with no backup. thanks in advance for your input.
