This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I have a 1972 Browning BT-99, with 34" bbls., fixed full choke, release trigger, in excellent original condition. When I purchased this gun it still had some of the original Cosmoline, and White Lithium Grease still on the gun. It has not been shot much. The gun locks up very tight, and still needs to be forced open. I would rate this gun 98%. The bluing is a dark blue/black, not like the usual purple hue to it. Comes with a Browning Traditional 1015 case. I am not sure of the release trigger maker. It has a silver long hook with no stamping on it coming up from the trigger area, that catches the hammer notch. Any questions feel free to ask. $930 plus S & I. SOLD PDF! Thanks, Jon

    If the gun is anywhere near 98% this appears to be an excellent deal, especially with the case included. A 1972 BT-99 was far superior to one produced today. I've seen some fine patterns from Browning fixed full chokes too.

    Can't go wrong there...the release is easy to remove on a BT-99, at least it was on the one I bought. Easy to put back on too, if you ever need it. They don't give the release trigger or the case away either...added value there.

    ...my gun was older and had screw in chokes and a release trigger installed by the previous owner...BUT I never use anything but a full choke...ever. I believe there are several advantages to full only...however that's another subject.

    Mine is the best money I've spent on a shotgun in a looong time...I call it Seabiscuit, it thinks it's a big expensive gun and shoots like it...LOL.

    Good luck..Stan

    Browning must have a reason to go to choke tubes---Don't think you can buy one today without tubes---I agree that the (F) fixed is great but most will do wonders with IM----Then go to (F) on back yardage---JMO---SJB---

    Phil Crenwelge at Phillips Gunsmithing will convert a BT99 from release back to pull for $50. If it happened to be one of his release triggers, I believe he will do it for free.

    I don't believe it will be Philips release because he does not use the original trigger from Browning.

    jon, send me your phone number and I will call you. I have a couple of questions but I am very interested. Thanks.

    All PM's answered.

    Please PM me with offers. Thanks.

    To me there is nothing better than an unaltered factory full choked barrel. My choice would be a 90T (.033), but Browning fixed full is not far behind. If you miss because of this choke and barrel, you are going to miss with any choke and barrel. It is that simple. All of the choke thoughts just mess with your mind and affect your shooting, more than the actual choke does. The only reason every manufacture has choke tubed barrels is because someone decided to come out with them first, and said it was a good idea. Now they are just another reason for a loss. Only because we think the wrong choke was the reason.

    These are the results of pattern test at 40 yds.. 1200 fps., 7 1/2's, 30 in. circle with approximately 90% inside. Center pattern is marked at 8 3/8" high from point of aim. After looking at the photo in zoom it looks like it should of been higher, like 9 1/2. If I moved the circle up 1 in. it would be more like 93%. There seems to be more shot hitting in the top 1/2 of the circle. There is maybe 10% below the point of aim (Target). Jon

    Save yourself $50. Unless you have something I've never seen before, all you need to do to convert it back to pull is remove stock and then remove the release hook which is held in with one screw. Do it with my Citori all the time and a BT-99 I had years back. Extremely simple.
