Has anybody had problems with a browning maxus firing or not chambering shells? I went in the drink with mine yesterday. I cleaned it really good but this morning it wouldn't fire or chamber shells sometimes this morning.

Mine will sometimes fail to cycle when it's really filthy and it's pretty cold out. When it does I will oil it and wipe it down and be good to go until it's filthy again. Problem I have is I can break the gun apart.

No offense.... Did you put it back together correctly? Oiled?

If you stripped it with gun scrubber or brake cleaner make sure you oil it good. They don't operate dry

Two drops of mobile one on the slides where the bolt runs. That's all it needs

I got mud on the inside of the chamber, and it wouldn't cycle right. Some had made its way down towards the stock, so the bolt couldn't slide right. Once I cleaned that area out and oiled the gun up, it fired like new.

My Maxus looks like its going back for the second time in a year for the same thing.
A couple of times during the last two hunts it acts like the safety is still on when its not.
If you move it back to safety, and then back fire it will shoot.



Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

Have you dropped the trigger and cleaned the hell out of it? Just two pins.

Yes, its been cleaned multiple times.
Seems to do it less right after its cleaned, but after a box of shells it happens more.

Hunting with it twice a year doesn't equal experience, if anything it'll go cheaper due to lack of use banana

A repetitive up and down jerk should get it off pretty easy, If you can't get it go visit Dave, he for sure can get it off

No, you can spray it from the top around the edges.

There is a gasket/seal in there. Residue can build up on the mag tube thus making it tough to get off.
