    My 90 year old father has given up trap shooting. His gift to me was his prized BT99 MAX trap gun. To me it looks like a standard BT99 with choke tubes. What makes it a "MAX" configuration. It is not for sale, it will stay in the family for my 5 year old grandson. Some day it may get to shoot trap again.

    The MAX mainly refers to the fact that it has a HIGH POST ventilated rib. They were made in blue or stainless. They were manufactured between 95-96. MSR was $1500. So mainly the higher rib is the only difference.

    That what I shoot. 34" barrel and love it. Bought it new from Leo's. I try to keep it cherry as possible and have been doing a good job of it. Enjoy it, good shooting. Mine is not for sale also.

    The BT99 Max came out at the same time as the BT100. It had the same high rib but did not have the drop out trigger of the BT100. The BT99 Competition came out in 1976 and had a relatively high rib with a fatter forend.
