I have a Browning Medalist (1968-70 vintage) and since the gun has been new I have had a problem with the dry fire device. When the gun was newer I could just reset in to the fire position. It was a little difficult, but I could reset it. How it is to a point that if it goes into the dry fire position I have to use a brass hammer to move it back. This has happened to me at two matches now and of course they will not let you take the time to “fix” the gun during a match. I believe the gun has to be taken apart and given a really good cleaning but I do not want to take the time nor I may not have the skills necessary to do this. I don’t want to take it to a Gun Smith because it is the only .22 match grade pistol that I have and I don’t want it tied up for a week of so. Has anyone ever had a gun ultrasonically cleaned? Any other advice till I get through the season?

Your best response will probably come from the Browning section of Rimfirecentral.

I've not owned a Medalist, although I would like to, but from what I've read on RFC, your problem is common. These guns are not difficult to work on but be forewarned that some parts are held in place by the grips. So when you remove the grips note the placement of parts. A poster there, Chim, has an excellent disassembly for the buckmark. There will be differences though as the buckmark does not have the dry fire option.
