    Stu- you have one of the nicest gun collections i have ever seen. all your guns look like new. thank you for always showing them to us. i had a small gun collection of remington 870's, a ta, tb, tc, d grade and an all american. i never had an f grade, although i did see one at one time. had to sell most of them do to job loss. i also had a ithaca model 37 trap grade with beautiful wood at one time too. my favorite trap guns of all time are the following in no partiucular order. rem 870 trap grade guns, winchester model 12 trap, old style bt99 made prior to 1976, rem model 31 tc's.
    thanks again,

    Steve,

    Its unfortunate that you had to sell off your collection. Sounds like you had some really nice guns there. Of all of the Remington Shotguns, the 31TC's have always been my favorites.

    When I first started shooting trap, many years ago, I started off with a 870, and shot that gun for several years. I switched back and forth between 870 and and a model 12. I enjoyed shooting both of them...

    Now a days, when I can shoot, my two favorites are my Perazz TM1 Custom and my Browning BT-99 Max. They both have the soft touch conversion stock system. I need to shoot the soft touch because of a broken jaw that I once had...

    Thanks for the comments....

    Stu Gabriel (MrGun)

    John,

    I am not fimilar with a Browning BT99 Piegon Grade VI.....

    As far as I know there where basically two different Piegeon BT99's produced.

    The one like mine, that where produced prior to 1985. Featured a grey receiver with deep relief, engraved pigeons in a fleur-de-lis background and fixed choke. Some of the earlier pigeons had gold inlays...


    The second pigeon models made 1993-94 , featured higher grade walnut stocks (than the standard BT99), blued receiver with gold accents, Invector chokes and ported barrel.

    Hope this helps....

    I cringe at the fequency with which younger people throw around the word "awesome" these days, but after looking at many of the guns you've posted I must say that your collection is... AWESOME!!

    You must have done very well for yourself, as the value of your collection must equal a king's ransom.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Gary,

    I appreciate your comments...

    I am an average Joe, just like the rest of us.

    I have brought and sold 100's of guns over the past 30 years, so I could enhance my personnel collection...

    I have been very, very lucky in a lot of the transactions that I have made...

    On my older guns, most of them where canidates for total restoration and I was able to purchase them at excellent prices and then restored them.

    Thanks for the interest....

    Thank you Stu for another great post. I was not aware that they made so many different BT-99's! Out of curiousity, is the Exhibition Grade similar to the Leos special? Have a good evening, Rodbuster.

    Rodbuster,

    No the exhibition grade is A One-Of-Kind BT99 Made in 1970...

    Thier where 100 Leo Specials Produced...

    The Leo Specials where machine engraved and not Deep Chiesle Hand engraved like the Exhibition Grade BT99 was.

    Engraving, the inlays and the wire border are all old school on the exibition BT99...

    The Leo Special is closer to the Modern Era Grade 6 Brownings...

    Hope this information helps....

    Thanks for looking,

    STU ,

    I shoot a 32" 99 PLUS & I noticed the butt plate on the Stainless gun has a large spacer , was that factory ?

    Great collection , thanks for sharing.

    Bill,

    No, that's a 3/4" add on spacer that the previous owner had installed. He was quite tall and needed 15" lentgh of pull. Factory length of pull is 14 1/4". The spacer comes right off, so it can go back to 14 1/4" pull with no problem.

    Hope this helps....
