    I am considering purchasing a Browning BT-99-AR from Monsoor's Sport Shop. My plan is to install a PFS and a release trigger to help with a flinching problem. What is the opinion of this gun for my intended use and is this available at other gun shops that would be closer to my home.

    They are nice but there is a fellow on here who goes by the handle Beretta Young Gun and he has a mint condition BT 99 Plus and it would be cheaper..worth more in the end..has the recoil reduction with adjustable LOP and adjustable comb(the GOOD one)...a much better investment if you ask me and the 99 Plus is much more handsome if that matters to you.....I put the link to the thread above

    CalvinMD, you took the words right outta my mouth. Not to mention the new ARs are not build as strong as the older plus guns.

    DHS, If you still want to take the PFS path you can install one on the plus with just a little modification to the trigger gaurd. I can also go ahead and have a release installed by one of the best release makers in ohio, Thurman Goble(ask any release shooter in ohio) for an additional $220. You won't have as much wrapped up in this gun as you would an AR and you will have a much better product.

    PM me if your interested. BYG

    I have a BT 99 plus that my son uses. I have shot it also and the recoil is still a problem so the reason for the PFS. A better option might be a standard BT 99 since I will not be using the stock and have a raised rib and barrel work separate to end up with what I want with the release trigger etc. What do all of you think about that or is there another option.

    Just find a Timney replacement recoil unit..also the stock one can be modified to have no detent and a nice soft spring..still going to end up with a much better gun with a lil work by going the 99 Plus route..If you gotta have the PFS just using a short tang trigger guard will get you there too...a very cheap mod
