Browning Silver

Postby magnum12 » Tue Dec 25, 2012 3:33 pm

Question, I just got a new browning silver and after a full cleaning I loaded some shells to make sure it cycled them just fine. Coming from a A5 to this, the A5 I was able to cycle the action and empty out the entire magazine before the bolt would lock back. When I tried this with the Silver, I loaded the gun up and when I manually cycled the action, the bolt locked back with the next shell waiting to load. Then to load it, I had to press the slide release and load the gun again. Is this normal behavior for the Silver?

Strange, i just pulled everything apart again, Trigger assembly, bolt and reassembled it and now it is working fine. I must of not had something lined up right but has anyone else ran into this before?

So I just came back from shooting trap and the gun worked like a champ without a hitch. I do have one question about cleaning the gas piston. I have read in several post to use either Break Free or Hoppes #9 but there are several different versions of break free. I was looking through my stuff and and found I do have some Break Free CLR, will this work for the gas piston since it cleans and lubricates or should I get something different?

CLP and an old toothbrush works just fine.

Never experienced what you had with the extraction issue in either my SX3 or Silver.

Thanks for the info! I do have some CLP and will use it to clean it. I did take the gun down to the trap range and round a 100 rounds through without a problem and took it out to the blind and not a single hick-up. So I guess who knows what the issue was but it seems to be working fine. :thumbsup:

If only shooting 100 rounds I use Kroil on mine and they look New after cleaning. When I let them go for a couple thousand rounds between cleaning I throw them in the ultrasonic pot for 30min and then scrub them with a toothbrush. Mine will lock the bolt back when emptying it if you cycle it manually real slow. if you cycle it normally/fast it does not do that. :thumbsup:
