yep, send it to a gunsmith. It isn't that difficult to remove but when the new locking block is fitted don't be surprised that the top-lever isn't offset to the right like you see on other guns. This has to do with some safety features built in to the trigger and locking block to prevent the trigger being pulled when the locking block isn't fully engaged. With Brownings, the repair is pretty straight forward with some minor fitting to be done. It will be money well spent!
John---I used Priority to send my Beretta action to MN from Southern IL and it took 2 days(insured). Hopefully you just had a fluke bad experiance. You have a nice weekend as well and good luck with your Browning.---Matt
