    Was just wondering what the difference is. I want to get one and put pfs on it but they only make for new style. Can they be converted i saw 1 guy on here that had one for old style. I just think the old style is a much nicer looking gun

    A number of people have done it. You just need to cut down the trigger guard to fit. Cut the trigger guard down with a metal saw and shape it with a dremel tool or something similar Leave it a little long and let the grip tension lock it in place. If you are worried about the guard, replacements are about $60.

    Email me offline if you need pictures.

    Where can you get the replacement guard. Browning no longer carries them Mid West no longer or Brownells. I have been looking for them. I have a BT99 Plus with a PFS and I cut the tang to short. I have been looking off and on for about a year. I want 2 of them one to replace the one that cut so that if I resell the gun I can put the old stock on,and the other to refit on my PFS. Could you provide me with the company that has them.

    Thanks

    George,

    I bought mine from a parts supplier in FL a couple of years ago, I'll look around and see if I can find the address/receipt. I had to settle for a stainless steel one instead of blued steel which actually turned out to be pretty good looking and made mine a little different than the 50 other BT 99s in the rack.

    Also check gunbroker, they show up there every so often.

    Mike

    The new BT-99 does not have engraving. No automatic ejectors and a
    alumunum trigger rather than steel. It also uses the same trigger
    guard as the Citori. I believe a few of the internal parts are
    cast rather the machined from billit steel.
