    hey guys a quick question

    bt-100 vs bt-99 is the main difference the higher rib or other mechanical items?
    bt-99 plus is just the rib?

    thanks Michael

    bt100 has drop-out trigger and is adjustable for weight of trigger pull.

    If you have the choice go for the BT 100, the Plus is a fine shooter as well,
    but in time I think you will find the 100 to be the better choice.With the 100 the drop out trigger for cleaning ect. is a nice feature.

    Now having said that I have shot both, and have just pounded my 100 and it keeps on ticking, which ever you choose be sure to get the adjustable comb, recoil system & changable chokes.
    Smokem have fun

    99 Plus has adjustable rib, comb and lop (about 1/2" or maybe a little more) in Factory recoil system.

    Unless you just want a new gun the BT99 and BT100 shoot pretty much the same.Both are good shooters.

    The BT-100 definitely puts less of a crook in my neck with that higher rib. I never cared about a drop-out trigger till I got one, now I love it. Also, the glossy BT-100 models not only have dropout triggers which are adjustable for pull-weight and foward/backward position (LOP), but it also lets you switch between eject and extract in seconds.

    BTW, with any BT, keep that receiver knuckle and forend bracket well lubed with clean grease -- the actions ship tight and can go from pristine to ridiculously galled in 25 shots. It always breaks my heart to see that - especially when it's a kid I warned about it.

    Thanks GW22. I'm picking up a new BT99 tomorrow and didn't know about the grease. Appreciate the advice.

    Happy to help. Another tip, which MIA turned me on to, is that NAPA Wheel Bearing Grease is as good as any gun grease you'll find, and you can get a big tub of it for just a few bucks. Apply with your finger, an acid brush from the plumbing department, or put in syringes you can get from McMaster Carr or a big pet store.

    Friends don't let friends gall their Brownings :)
