    How flat shooting are the old style "BT99" do you have to cover the target like a field shotgun Winchester Model 12. Or is it more a 60/40. To get a "BT99" to shoot high would you add a pad to the comb. And thanks for any INFO. "Alaskan for Global Warming" snow still on the ground.

    Are you talking about the old beaver tail forearm type or the next one newer and before the plus models.

    I never shot them myself but my brother used to have the Bt's befoe the plus models and wasn't the bever tailed forearm either, he thought they shot sort of high definately not a flat shooter but it might had been the 60/40 range but of course we never pattern the barrels to really see.

    Different shooters will mount the same gun differently resulting in a different POI for each shooter.

    BT 99's are great guns for singles and handicap.

    The BT's w/ the big square forends were known to shoot too high. If I recall correctly the high shooters have an R in the serial #.

    They are simply great for the first shot of doubles. MIA- Why don't we both sign up for the same post on doubles and shoot our single barrels. I will shoot the right bird and you shoot the left one. Almost like protection doubles.

    It is good to see real trapshooting questions discussed here since a number of people prefer political oriented crap than real trap shooting issues with what would appear to be the single purpose in their bitter minds: Upsetting someone and getting into a heated battle thus taking over the thread.

    Thank you, thank you Kuz.

    Now to your question, a friend of mine shoots an old style 32" long tang BT 99 and it shoots real flat, it has the flat rib and you pretty much have to cover the bird in order to break it efficiently.
