    Hello Everyone..
    I just picked up a sweet, long tang BT-99 and I'm looking to find out when it was built. I went to the Browning site and it didn't make sense to me!!!
    BT-99 Fixed 34" Full choke and Serial # starting with 47D #####..
    I THINK it's a 1969 Model but not sure.
    Anyway way to verify?

    Thanks in advance.
    Frye.

    Not sure if this helps but mine is a 37Dxxxx and was told by Browning that its a 1973 vintage....which would make yours a 1974? maybe..or not?

    You may want to go on Browning's website (www.browning.com) and look at the FAQ which may help you. I was able to track the BT-99 Competition Model that I currently own. Darrell

    Click on the link I have attached - I will take you to the Browning page for s/n-date info for the BT-99.

    OK, 47D has to be pre 1976 as Browning re-standardized it's serial # identification..
    Serial # beginning with 01001 at the start of each year.

    Date of manufacture is a 2 digit code:
    ie: Z=1,
    Y=2,
    X=3,
    W=4,
    V=5,
    T=6,
    R=7,
    P=8,
    N=9,
    M=0,

    Serial # example: 01001NVH99
    This would be a BT100 12 GA. Grade 1 shotgun Manufactured in 1995 with the serial # 01001.

    Other than that I would suggest you contact Browning as BT-100dc suggested.
