    OK here is the skinny, this info is direct from Browning two days ago, I call them and told them that the common belief here on TS.com is that the BT99's that we know as the " HIGH SHOOTERS " were only made in 1976 and 77 this is not true although the 76 and 77 's were some of the High shooters the years that the so called High shooters were made also included 1975 and 1978, at guy at Browning named Joe went into the archives ( old catalogs ) and here is what they said, 1975-76-77-78 they were are refered to as Extra High Post Ribs, starting in 1979 they catalogs described them as just High Ribs, a friend and I do have one with RP in the serial number, and we can clearly see that both of the matching 34" serial number barrels both extra High Ribs, and they are for sale right now for 1350.<a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    I have a set, MINT condition, but wouldn't take less than $1500. Great outfits, in my opinion.

    I have a NIB unfired (as of yet) two bbl. set, RN serial # (1979 mfg.) 34" full and 34" imp. mod., Competition forearm, MC stock.

    Bought it from a fellow TS.com member a while back. If I ever would sell it, I'd not part with it for any less than around 1700. Heck, new ones start at 1100.....and IMHO do not measure up to the older production.

    KEEP SMOKIN' EM.... Dave

    I had a set, both 32". As I recall they both had the same POI. I never used the full, IM worked all the way to the fence.

    My pal still has it.

    SirMissalot, I hope this answers your Question " the ribs are Higher from the back towards the front, which creates a Higher POI.
