1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    .

    Saw an older Browning BT-99 for sale in a retail store today.

    Serial number 70D 030xx

    34-inch barrel

    Fixed Choke marked * and measured 0.038" constriction.

    No Monte Carlo stock.

    Long tang.

    Everything looked original and serial numbers all matched.

    While used, looked very good. No obvious defects.

    Marked $999 and said they would take $965.

    Any thoughts on whether this price is in the right ball park ?

    What are the advantages of an older BT-99 over current production ones ?


    .


    A brand new Browning BT-99 sells for between $1,100 and $1,200 depending on how slow the sales are that day.

    Old ones had ejectors, engraving and better craftsmanship; new ones have choke tubes.

    It's mainly a personal preference issue.

    It better be pretty darn nice for $965 w/o M/C stock.

    I agree with GW22 that's all the money, but if it's a cream puff I'd rather pay a little too much for it than but a new one. My $.02

    Older guns are far superior in my opinion. To me the ejector is a major plus.

    Here is how I would price a 1970 straight stock BT-99.

    $ 1,000.00 Cherry

    $ 900.00 Pretty damn nice

    $ 800.00 Solid Shooter

    $ 700.00 Few issues

    $ 600.00 Major issues
