    Browning Maxus Trigger Problems

    Update. I used my Maxus on our syndicate cock day on Friday and had a brilliant morning flightline shoot in the snow on Saturday. As the learned JDog suggested I consciously relaxed after each shot and the gun never hicked. Thanks for all the replies, it has hopefully saved me the hassle of sending the gun back to Browning.

    Flight line fun.

    Nice outing JD. Carrying kit is a big deal. 75% of my permissions have margins that I can drive right around the fields. It's a pain when I have to lump the gear and like you I try to carry only essentials.

    Browning Maxus Trigger Problems

    1. No gloves - we're made of whinstone in Northumberland. 2. Unfortunately I need the second and third shot on a regular basis! Consciously releasing the trigger is new to me - I'll have to get my head around it.I do like the feel of the gun, it points very nicely.

    Browning Maxus Trigger Problems

    Thanks for replies lads. I will have a go at consciously releasing the trigger. I've googled this and it is a repetitive issue with the Maxus, the USA guys go into it in great depth on their sites. I must admit it's the first I've heard of it. If it starts interfering with my shooting it will definitely be going back. You're concentrating on the bird and shouldn't have to worry about whether the gun is going to work.

    Browning Maxus Trigger Problems

    Good point, I think they're ok as I have been using the same shells through my O/U with no problem. Strike seems fine on the empties.

    Yes, I must admit that's my gut feeling. I'm curious if any PW members have experienced this.

    Browning Maxus Trigger Problems

    Recently bought a brand new Browning Maxus. Initially very impressed with the gun, fits well and the recoil is hardly noticeable. However, I was shooting pigeons this weekend and on Saturday I was unable to fire the second shot on 3 occasions.. The cartridge recycles fine (32g No 5) but i couldn't fire the second shot. Went on Sunday and exactly the same thing happened, except more regularly. It is as if the safety was on. I double checked I wasn't inadvertently catching the safety but definitely wasn't. I cleared the gun and started again, only for the same problem to come back after 5 or 6 shots. Gun is spotless, only had a maximum of 300 shells through. Has anyone else experienced this? How did you remedy? As I say, I really like the gun but can't put up with this - particularly when pigeons are piling into the decoys! TIA

    I like the look of that! Thanks for the tip.

    Game Bags

    Thanks for the replies guys - I'm pleased others bought the Shooting Developments bags too. If packed correctly I can get 25 pigeons in one. I used to think nothing of carrying 3 full bags over a muddy plough - those days are gone now!

    Quality Flighting

    Thanks for the pointers gents. I think the gun fits me just fine - the poor shooting was lack of skill on my behalf! I'll stick with it though as the recoil was hardly noticeable and the gun points very nicely.

    Game Bags

    Looking for recommendations from the PW massive. My current game bags are very hard up and am looking to replace them. Many years ago I bought 3 green canvas bags from Shooting Developments (Fife) and they have proved to be great value. I'd like something similar without spending daft money. TIA

    Third Week lucky

    Great report again. The birds must be really set on the field when they have been shot at as much.

    Quality Flighting

    The syndicate I’m a member of has a long strip of mixed, mature hard and softwoods that currently borders a huge expanse of rape. Large numbers of pigeons had been building up over the past week and were using the hardwoods as sitty trees before feeding on the rape. The wind was right on Saturday so I took the opportunity to christen my new Maxus. (Purchased as I my Silver Pigeon was starting to knock me about with recoil on a decent day) The sport was top notch, with big packs of birds flighting the length of the tall trees. I shot moderately with the Maxus but killed enough high birds to make me keen to persevere with it - I particularly like the slim fore end and it points very nicely. Stan worked hard as ever and picked 32

    I love October

    Nice one lads! I thought you'd packed in for the fowling! Green eyed monster is back up North!
