      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Browning Gold Hunter 12ga Semi-Auto Problems

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

My buddy is having internet problems today, so he asked me to post this before we headed up north hunting this weekend.

He has a Browning Gold Hunter 12ga Semi-Auto, and after firing the first round, the bolt is not putting the second shell all the way into the chamber. This is not a problem with just small shot either, when shooting duck and goose loads he has the same problem. After thoroughly cleaning the gun the problem still exists. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help!

Yep, had it happen too. 2 things:

First, clean it better. Yep, better, no matter how he thought he cleaned it. Same happened to me. Get some "Break Free" from gander or other store, very light oil, works great and don't need much of it. Use some wad cleaner type stuff to clean thoroughly, then Break Free as light oil.

The main thing to clean:

Take the butt plate off. Then use a socket to take the stock off. You will see the spring. My bet is that this is very dirty. Mine was. Really dirty. Mud, you name it.

Then what I did - though I don't want to tell him to do it, but we did it on mine and my brothers - is too stretch that spring out a bit. Give it a bit more umph for pushing the shell back. Mine is faster than a ... well, its fast now smile.gif No complaints, better than new. They have aftermarket springs available too.

Everybody thinks gas guns get dirty around the port, and they can, but not with even slgith bit of cleaning. But we found the stock spring seems to be weak, or get weak, and that is what pushes the bolt (with next shell) back into the chamber.

Then just bolt it back on, tighten down, put butt plate back on and you are set. Normal tools work, but if I recall you may need deep well. It is easy. After doing that, mine is shooting fast and trouble free since I did about 2 years ago.

You don't want/need oil on these, or not much, and you want a light oil. Nothing worse than a gooey action especailly in the cool temps.

Good luck, hope that helps some.

I had the same thing happen to my Browning gold. I called Browning and they sent me a sheet on how to oil it. I'll list the instructions here. When I did that I haven't had any more problems.

1. Retract bolt into rearward position.

2. Remove forearm, barrel, and all gas system components.

3. There are two openings in the front of the receiver just above the magazine tube. With muzzle end pointed upward, place 3 drops of gun oil on each side. Allow oil to run down grooves and cycle the bolt slowly a few times to disburse oil. Cycle slowly do not let bolt slam forward.

Had the same problem.

It's the return spring in the stock.

Find a stronger one if you can.
