    Did anyone like the old true beavertail forearms that came on some BT 99s and Citoris?

    I did

    What would be a disadvantage to such a forearm- other than your hand is futher from the barrel? if the edge was cut in line with the barrel- I dont see a disavantage

    ?

    regards from Iowa

    My 1st BT had the full beavertail, my '74 Pigeon has the semi. Liked 'em both, didn't miss much moving to the semi.

    For the folks who flat hand the forestock, full beavertail might be ideal.

    if you hold a high gun it does block your vision some, I have had bt-99's and still own 2 100's, I had the forend on my 100's trimmed down. It works for me

    I had a couple of BT-99s from 72 and some of the later issues with the fat forends. The earlier model allowed more of a "hand in line with the bore" feel and made for natural pointing. At my age, I am unable to twist my wrist very far comfortably without dropping my forend elbow too low. This happens with a fat forend instead of a slimmer one.
