    Hi Jill...to answer your question..the BT99 has been around a long time...the first ones had the slim style forend like the new production ...they had fixed chokes and nice engraving and finish typical of a Browning...later came the blockier competition forend change and a choice of straight or Monte Carlo stocks..you still had fixed chokes but now also had a choice to get your gun with Invector choke tubes in the muzzle end to add versatility, plain Invectors were in the older std (.728) I.D. guns...the next upgrade to come was backbored barrels where the insude diameter of the barrels bore was opened to .742 and the new longer style chokes to match were called Invector "Plus"...all this was done to soften recoil and inprove pattern quality..next thing added was porting ..up to now all BT's were fixed medium-low fixed rib fixed stock. Then Browning reacted to requests to add adjustability to customize fit and POI(point of impact) come out with the BT99 Plus..same basic action but now you had a comb to adjust as well as an adjustment for LOP(length of pull)on the recoil pad end of the buttstock to get a perfect fit and sight picture also..with the added benefit of the builtin recoil reduction device which have worked pretty good for me with little failure. On the barrel you now had the new floating high ajustable rib..the adjustment on the rib gave you a very modest ability to affect
    POI but moreso the sight picture to get the desired figure 8 or thereabouts..these guns cames ported and unported blue and stainless stell finish..as well as standard, Pidgeon and, Golden Clays editions , to give you plain through pretty to satisfy the eye candy folks
    BT100 is a different animal...totally different action and barrels..BT100s all had the same hi style fixed rib and drop out triggers that allowed you to replace it in case of failure ..to me it was why?...BT99's never broke..but some folks thought they had to have it...It did make it easier to inspect and clean I will admit...stocks were also available fixed comb and adjustable...BT100s were also a good bit pricier than the 99......there you go...to each his own
