    Long rang extends the length of the pistol grip. Short tang stops at the rear of the trigger housing.

    VDT, The top lever has nothing to do with it. The Tang is on the bottom, not the top as you just seemed to think. Its in the pistol grip on bottom of the gun. The short tang curves around half way down, maybe slightly more. The long tang curves all the way down to the bottom of the pistol grip almost to the very end of it. Hope this helps you out. Break-em all. Jeff

    I don't know what year they changed, but there is absolutely no difference between the guns other than a shorter tang on the guard.

    I get it-- the Long Tang Model has a long tang and the Short Tang Model has a short tang-- I think.

    All BT-99 shotguns produced from 1968 through 1995 were equipped with a "Long Tang" trigger guard. All BT-99 shotguns produced from 2001 through the present are equipped with a "Short Tang" trigger guard.

    Got this from Midwest Gun Works

    I guess we really should not post pictures- "Remember: It's easy to forget
    that you are responding to a person who can't see your face, hear your tone
    of voice, or judge your mood....."

    We might get banned.

    ROTFLMAO
