Well,
I just purchased a 1976 Browning BT-99 with hard case. It is a 34" fixed IM barrel with factory installed gracoil butt bad and a competetion forend. Overall I would rate it at around 90% average with some minor handling wear on the receiver and a few minor scratches in the wood. I paid $700 for it and feel like I got a good deal. Looking forward to taking down my first 25 with it.

Practice, Practice Practice, don't just shoot for fun, work on the stations that give you fits, once you learn how to break them,lock it in to your memory. The BT-99 is a gun that'll last a life time and break many 25's in a row.

There are several BT 99's for sale at Seneca Arms in Green Lane. Including mine. I no longer have a use for a single barrel trap gun, especially since I am now concentrating on sporting clays.

My BT 99, with the exception of a small nick on top of the breach block is LNIB (and in face IS in the origianal box) and it's priced to sell. I also have a 303 Enfield and a Winchester Mod 50 there on consignment as well. I need to moves some stuff out.

OK, at the risk of sounding even more directionally challenged, where is that in relation to Philadelphia? Is it manny miles away?

Never mind, thanks to Google, I just answered my own question, 42.3 miles to 116 Gravel Pike Lane. I'm gonna check it out one day soon. I have to survive the holidays first

Otter,
The I think jim's dad's is the one with the extened choke tube because he says it had the box and I noticed on the tag on that one it said it included the box.

No, I took out the Briley choke and inserted one of the original flush chokes it came with. The gun has white nylon spacers (washers) supporting the adjustable cheek piece.

BT-99, excellent gun. Best thing is Brownings are built to last. As us Browning fans say, "Brownings don't break". Only minor problem you may encounter is misfires due to worn out springs. Easy and inexpensive fix. When the gun fits you, you'll break birds. Enjoy.

I sold an older BT to a youngster who shot his way to the 27 and All American Junior team with it....he ran them from the 27 at the Pa State shoot with it one year.....

Great guns....
