    Excluding the latest run of BT-99s..what is the main differences between the older BT-99s and the BT-100s..

    Comments on the old BT Plus guns are welcome also..

    I noticed in one pic that a BT-100 seemed to have a much higher rib than my 1982 BT-99. Did all the BT-100s have very tall ribs?(...well maybe not "very" tall by today's standards ??).

    Thanks..Stan

    100's have removable triggers. Rib heights on 99's. vavy widely. There is one series of 99's that have ribs that make them 90-100% POI shooters.

    I wonder if the adjustable LOP trigger on the BT-100 could be installed on the BT-99..? I have my gun apart right now...so this would be a good time to do it if it can...and I need a little longer LOP...

    Stan,

    I don't believe it can. They are completely different types.

    There was a small number of guns made called the BT-99 Max which had the same high rib as the BT-100 but the normal BT-99 trigger not removable.

    The biggest and best difference is the detachable trigger which also has adjustment for pull weight and eject or not option. I have both an older BT99 (which is a fine SBT) and a BT100. The rib is much higher on the BT100 but that does not always translate to a higher POI.. As far as I know hardly any parts would interchange between them (except Invector + chokes if both were so equipped)

    Not all of the BT-100's have the selectable eject/extract feature. The satin finish guns are extract only.

    Thank you gentlemen..

    I assumed (wrongly) that the BT-100 was just a Bt-99 with a few odd and end modifications. Sounds like nothing really is the same...aside from thw chokes as was mentionned.

    Surprisingly to me is that the BT-99 is likely the nicer of the two...I'm pleased that I stumbled across a "nice" older gun instead of buying a later model as I planned originally.

    Thanks....Stan
