    I certainly like mine. The only drawback for me was the beavertail forearm was too wide for my small hand. I had Peter Hamann(from Pete's List on here)up in New York duplicate my Rottweil forearm dimentions on a "Competition" piece of wood, and it is my gun of choice now when I go to shoot.

    I like the one I have for sale. Shoots real nice and flat but I have 4 trap guns and don't need them all. Bulge.

    One of the Best Trap Gun Values in the industry! You could get one in Stainless with a Drop Out Adjustable Trigger....Etc. Etc.

    Built by Browning to compete with the the Perazzi's and Krieghoffs of the world at a fraction of the cost...Unfortunately people didn't pay more for the additional features and the BT-99 became the standard and eventually Browning discontinued the 100....I own one and love it! Not one issue....

    Shoot it before you buy it. Mine shot dead flat. 50/50
    Got rid of it in a hurry.

    I was fortunate to get the Stainless BT100 MIA had for sale a few months ago. Absolutely love the gun! I could not have bought the gun from a more knowledgable sharing individual than Jack. He shared with me everything a person needs to know to make a Browning last a lifetime. Best gun I have ever purchased. You can make them shoot anywhere you want and I adjusted my gun to 90/10, my choice. Bill

    The only problem I had with mine was with the adjustable comb. The hardware was junk, and the comb would not hold a setting. Kept moving. So, I sold it.

    I love my BT-100! I bought it mostly for the tapered rib which gives me a 90/10 pattern. I like the adjustable trigger as well, but watch out! DO NOT over-torque the set screw in the trigger blade, which is made of 'pot-metal'. The retaining bars will break and the trigger blade will cost about $75 to replace. You may also find that the OEM Browning chokes will not pattern as well as after-market tubes, such as Brileys.

    Other than that, it's a great trap gun for the money!

    Over the years, I have had all three models...stainless, gloss blue and satin. The satin isn't worth beans, IMHO. The other two are great for the flexibility and adjustability. I have had both thumbhole and adj. comb. I even had a thumbhole with an adjustable comb. These guns shoot well. I have recoil issues and couldn't get any of them settled down. I certainly would own one again.
