    I'm thinking of of putting a pfs on my bt-99 plus, does anyone shoot a BT with one? Your thoughts good and bad..
    Thanks Mike

    I have a PFS stock on my BT 99 Plus and all I did was cut the tang to the length of the inlet of the grip and then rounded the edge and bent it up a little so it put pressure on the frame of the gun. It fits nice and neat and it doesn't move unless I pull it down and move it out of the inletted area in order to remove the trigger guard. I have also heard that you can have a gunsmith take an later model trigger guard and drill a hole in the frame of the gun and then you can secure the guard with a machine screw.

    I have a couple of PFS's that I move around from gun to gun and have had them on my early BT along with my other guns. The PFS is great product doing a very, very good job of reducing felt recoil and has the added advantage of total adjustment to fit just about everyone.

    In terms of adjustment, a lot of guy's aren't willing to spend time tweaking the stock to get it dialed in and walk away in frusration. If you're willing to take the time along with a call or two to Vern at the plant you can make a PFS the sweetest thing you ever laid your hands on.

    My BT is a early long tang trigger guard, I elected not to cut the tang opting to go with a Citori trigger guard from Brownell's which is threaded at the front of the guard the same as the long tang. The Citori guard has a small stud at the rear requiring a small hole to be drilled in the bottom of the receiver and a smaller hole cross drilled to press in a roll pin to hold the stud in place.If you have a drill press and decent hands, you can do the the modifications. I can post pictures if you like.

    From my view, I can't say enough good things about the PFS, they are a great product and well worth the money. If you elect to buy used, look for a later generation with the 1/4" rod, these have a wider range of adjustments and are lighter than earlier models.

    My BT is a long tang so I have to take that into consideration. Thanks for the input gentleman.

    Mike680, If you want to take the time, you can inlet the tang on the PFS grip just like it is on the wooden factory stock. I saw a BT where the owner had done this using a knife and Dremel tool. It's just another approach dealing with the long tang and the PFS grip.
