I cracked open the safe the other day and went to move it to get to a gun further back in the safe and the entire DuraTouch stock is gooey....totally unlike the feeling when it was new. I spot tested some solvents to clean it up and nothing worked. I ended up putting it back in the safe for a few months and resigned to work on it later. Well, today I decided to tackle it and tried rubbing alcohol, additional solvents and even Goo Gone and nothing worked. I called Browning and they passed me around for a bit before I reached the parts department and they told me they were out of the Mossy Oak Shadow Grass DuraTouch stocks, but could warranty me black or walnut as a direct replacement. I opted for black as it's a hard use hunting gun. Looks like some rattle can is in my future. The parts gal stated that there are a lot of Gold Autos out there, and they're getting calls on a few of them with stocks that are "melting". It's unfortunate a 1k gun came apart like that, but I applaud Browning for how they dealt with it. Here's hoping it looks decent. Ed ---------------EDIT------------------ I just noticed that my Limbsaver recoil pads on two of my shotguns were "melting". A quick call to Limbsaver at 877-257-2761 and new ones are in the mail. One of their suppliers provided a bad batch of rubber a few years ago and they'll replace them for free (upgraded models even!).
