Browning Gold

Shorelunch,

Yes, The Browning Gold does that automatically. However there should be a MCO on your gun to stop that from happening. Nice little feature. Nice Gun too. Browning "The Best There Is!" he he

I have a Browning Gold Hunter 12 gauge semi-auto.

I usually load it by putting one shell in the chamber through the ejection port and two in the magazine. About 1/2 the time when I load it, a shell that I load in the magazine tries to load in the chamber (speed loading?). I recently cleaned/lubed it, but it hasn't effected it.

Any thoughts?

The Gold hunter is designed to autoload the chamber if it is empty and locked open when you place a shell into the magazine.

Thanks for the replies.

This is my 1st semi-auto. Maybe I'm loading it incorrectly . . .
So the best way to load the gun is through the magazine? If I understand correctly, once I insert a shell in the magazine, it will load into the chamber and then load the other two shells in the magazine?

My problem has come when inserting the 2nd shell into the magazine - it wants to go into the chamber.

What's an MCO?

ShoreLunch,

It's a Magazine Cut Off System. Alot of Browning Golds have'em on the opposite side of the action. It's a little lever you can switch to on and off. If you look at your gun you'll know if it is there or not. It's pretty obivious (it sticks out of the receiver). Another possibility is that the arm inside the magazine is broken. However wouldn't make much sense if the first shell is going in. Good Luck!

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
