    BT 99's seem to fit a great number of people quite well....I'm not surprised you would like the gun and shoot it well. If the gun locks up tight and you get along with the trigger OK, then it is probably the gun for you.

    If you're happy, the price sounds reasonable for a good condition gun. Pigeon grade all the better....I can't really think of anything to watch out for...they just seem like the Energizer Bunnies of trap guns.

    P.s. I also shoot a " BT "

    I purchased a 99 for myself to just play around with. I made the mistake of letting my kids shoot it. Guess what. They say it is theres. I think the 99 is hard to beat in a singles game. In my eyes it does not get any better.

    I bought one for my girlfriend and she went from 15's to consistently over 20 after we shortened the stock.

    Great gun for the price. She loves it.

    Easy to fix and simple internals.

    I own several BT99s. Pigeon and Pluses are a bonus. They adjust to most shooters and are very reliable even with heavy loads. If you don't want the gun, I have a $1000 waiting for it. You can date your gun on http://www.midwestgunworks.com .

    My brother purchased a used BT-99 for his son but his son decided he didn't
    want it. I shot it today and kinda fell in love with it. I shot a 91 from the 16
    with it without making any adjustments so it seemed to fit me pretty good.
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00">He had</span>
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00">purchased it for $1000.00</span> and I
    figured that was a good price. I don't have a clue about how old it is but it
    has screw in chokes, 32 inch barrel and <span style="background-color: #FFFF00">
    adjustable everything on the stock. It does say Pigeon on the side of the
    receiver</span>, it is also <span style="background-color: #FFFF00">ported</span>.
    Lockup is very solid and gun overall looks real good(around
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00">95Pct)</span>. As you may have guessed,
    I am very interested in this gun and wondered if there is anything I should look
    for that may spell trouble ahead. Thanks for your help. Jackie B.

    <span style="background-color: #FF0000">Omaha</span>; Are you saying you will
    buy <span style="background-color: #FF0000">BT99s for $1000.00</span>? "I have
    $1000.00 waiting for it". check post below (<span style="background-color: #FF0000">FS
    BT99</span> <span style="background-color: #FF0000">new mdl</span>.) by
    wonatatime. He has a nice one for $950.00.

    I would guess that Jackie B. has a 32" Ported Pigeon, @95%, with
    an adjustable stock at the very least. A lot of Pigeons are PLUS models.
    NEW BT99s don't do much for me, but if Jackie B. doesn't want the gun as he
    described it in the first post, I think I would try to give him his $1000 back.
    If you look at what I wrote:

    then, I might be interested in this BT99. Thanks for asking.
    I am betting he will adjust it and try to break a 100/100.

    Joe, I knew Jackie wouldn't give it up! No, harm done, you had good intentions. Good Shooting to you Jackie B. Adjust it to your frame and break em all.

    I have a BT-99 plus and i love it, besides the recoil kinda punches me in the cheek, they have very good spread.
