    I have seen some stainless steel BT's with laminated stocks like you describe. I thought it was factory wood but don't know for sure. John

    You will find the laminated stock version of the bt99 in both blued and nickel but not stainless. Some think the nickel is stainless but it isn't.

    Rich, As said they were a shotshow special several years ago. They had them in the BT-99 and the 525 as well, if memory serves. I saw one of them in a blued finish and one in a dull stainless steel finish as well. It might have been the 525. I did not care for the way these guns looked at all. The stocks had a very odd color hue mixed into the finish. But then again I don't like the way the cynergys look either. I do not know how these guns hold up on value compared to the standard Brownings. I would not be a bit surprized to find out Browning was doing some research as to see how well these stocks would be accepted into mainstream. Since they never made any since I think we know how the research ended up. break em all Jeff

    I own a BT99 SHOT Show special... matte 34" Nickel Barrels with Laminate Grey Wood Stock, bright receiver with scroll work and extractors... limited edition.
    Miroku made... unsure who did the actual stock work.

    My "guest gun"... easy to shoot, easy on the eyes... everyone breaks targets with it!

    I saw one of these at Gander Mountain in Peoria Illinois that was a numbered, limited run commerative for the Illinois Dept of Natural Resources.

    It was a nickel Bt-99 with a grayish / bluish monte carlo stock. The checkering on it was in credibly sharp. Sharp as in run your hand over it and it would cut you.

    It felt very heavy for a BT-99.

    It was in the rack for sale for over a year. The last price I saw on it was $1,099.00.

    The BT-99 is a Grey Laminate Nickel. It was a 2007 Shot Show Special. Made by order only from the Shot Show. A Browning Rep. told me only 5000 to 5500 were made, with Cabela's ordering the most. The laminate stock blued guns were a Gander Mt. exclusive, I think a year later. The Grey Laminate Citori 525 was also a Shot Show Special, and came in two versions. A plain one with no extras for around $1800, and one with ported barrels, adjustable comb, hard case, and Midas chokes for $2400.
