today i've noticed something with my browning grand prix sporter 3 years old.
while sitting on a chair, i hold the gun stock on a carpet on the floor and the muzzles pointing the ceiling. with my knees i hold the action tight and with my hand i move the barrels left and right holding them from the chokes area. the barrels seem to move into the action, is that normal play or should it be tight with no play. my gun got loose or this is normal??
many thanks for helping

Does not sound right to me. FIrst, is there any powder residue or flakes in the breech area? Second, is this after a gentle close of the action, or letting the lug "snap" home? (A snap shut should always lock a clean gun up tight.) Where does the locking lever sit if you let the gun snap shut? Finally, have you checked that the fore-arm screws are snug -- the 3 phillips heads down in the fore-arm -- and the that the stock itself is snug to the receiver? If either are loose, it could be what you're feeling and not the action per se.
