Default Browning Buckmark - ChallengerIII

Rescently acquired 2012 Buckmark preowned 99.9%. I have a challenger III, so I thought disassembly would be the same. The factory put LOk-Tite on the barrell screw. I called Browning and they insisted I don't take the gun down, Just oil it don't even squirt Gunscrub in it. I don't agree with this. I never had an autoloader that I shouldn't take down. Is this reasonable advice, or do they want to CTA in case I f**k it up?

I love getting guns in plastic baggies.
It makes my Saturdays go by pretty fast and puts some extra change in my pockets.

Seriously, without knowing your skill level with firearms, I would normally agree with the manufacturer.
The user's manual does not address the complete takedown for that CTA reason.

That just took the Buckmark out of the running for my first .22 pistol... The Ruger Mk.II/Mk.III is a nightmare, but at least its do-able.

See Buckmark Field Stripping on Utube. The barrel really doesn't need to be removed. You should still consider it., Sputnik

I don't take mine apart to clean it



There's no need to.

and if factory tells you not to ... I'd probably listen.
