My dad has had a browning gold 12 guage for the past 5 years.
the gun operates great, the only problem is the barrell wont budge! it hasnt been removed in 18 months and needs to be cleaned but we dont know what to do. Any suggestions to get the two apart are greatly appreciated along with ideas as to how this might have happened. thanks

Not trying to be funny, but does he still have the papers/manual that came with it(assuming that he bought it new)? From time to time when I haven't done something like that in a while, I tend to forget the steps and have never failed to accomplish the mission when I resort to the manual. I don't know this model, but many are actually on the manufacturers websites. Good luck.

They come off the same way as a 1100. Unscrew the nut at the end of the magazine, slide the forearm off, you may have to open the action, and it should slide off.

ok, we have another browning gold in which the barrell slides off easily, this one is "stuck" we have had two people pulling, one on barrell one on stock and the thing wont budge.
sorry if i wasnt clear enough.

If it's stuck on the mag. tube, try sticking it in the freezer for a couple of hours. Heck, with this weather, just leave it outside overnight. The thin wall of the tube should contract more than the barrel lug. Sometimes it works and sometimes it don't. Just a thought.

Also pour some kroil oil around the barrel ring and let it soak in between the magazine tube and the barrel ring.

Doesn't always work. About 7 out of 10 I guess.
