    A friend asked me to research two BT-99's he purchased recently.
    The ser numbers don't match up to the Browning chart.

    Gun #1, is a 12g 34 inch full choke barrel with a serial #524D8

    Gun #2, is a 12g 32 inch IM choked barrel with a Serial #12D13881

    I may be reading the Browning chart wrong, but I don't think so.

    Is gun #1 the 524th gun produced in 1968?

    Gun #2, I am guessing it was made in 1981, but it is more of a guess.

    Any input is appreciated.

    Gun #2 looks like the serial number off of a Bt-100 or 99max. Make sure the guns are true standard grade bt-99 or the serial numbers won't match the chart. BYG

    I agree with Trainwreck on gun 1.

    My best guess on gun 2 is that the "1" is really a "7" making it a 1972 manufacture gun.
