    BT-99 Leo

    Does anyone have information as to how many BT-99 Leo's Specials were made? Each year? What years were they made?
    There seems to be a lack of information on the web about this magnificent gun.
    thanks
    Joel

    I believe there was a run of 300, but I am not sure if ALL runs were of 300.

    I bought one of these guns years ago from Leo himself and he gave me alot of information about this gun.the box these guns came in had Leo Special on it.He was the only person in Browning history to have their name on the box.There were for sure 2 runs of a 100 made but maybe 3.the first run were hand engraved and the others were stamped.the engraver signed these guns on the left side under the gold inlay pigeon.this maes the first run more valuable.on the right side it had 2 gold inlay pigeons and 1 on the trigger guard.The number of the gun was right in front of release.The guns all had grade 6 wood and came in an americase that said Leo's custom stocks Library Pennsylvania If someone is looking to buy one of thes guns contact me.I have number 6 from 1st run

    Sorry Bill but I disagree. There are very few of them. I have never seen any with a number above 250. I have #04 in a Bt-99 and #37 in a Bt-100. If you figure out the percentage, I bet it is less than 2% of Bts made. Frank

    I would like to see if any original condition grade 6 stocks are out there for them, and how much?

    I have said this before, But I'll repeat "I have a Leo BT100 #106 on the handle"
    assuming they started with the number 001 they made more than a 100 of this model. Maybe they started with ten or 100 I don't know.

    #106 is on the knob of the release handle. NV indicates 1995 as year of manufacture. K99 which S.N. ends with is not listed on Browning web site. I can not find name of engraver.

    Now I know that I have seen some gold numbers on the round part of the release lever where it pivits at. Now for the first time I see the gold numbers on the Reciever just in front of the release trigger where the gold target is located on a K guns top latch. So now I'm not sure which placement is correct for a Leo's special, or a Joel's run or even possiblebly a special run of grade VI's. Sorry if I only helped to confuss the issue more, but I would like to get a strait answer as well as others I'm sure. Break-em all. Jeff
