I think the "new" BT99s, i.e., post BT100, are extract only. Maybe the higher grade models eject. As to the original question, I'm not positive but I doubt it. I have the satin extract-only BT100, and I've read that it can't be converted to eject. There's a necessary part of the mechanism that just isn't there- no doubt a cost-saving measure. It never bothered me since I reload and want to save the hull anyway. James Fawcett

The normal high gloss BT100s could be set to eject or extract. The satin, el cheapo BT100 lacked some of the bells and whistles and could extract only. James Fawcett

Some of the new BT 99 models are extract only - this information is available off the Browning Web site. The higher grade models like the golden clays model or the nickle grey stainless model do not say "extract only", so they may eject and if they do, parts might be available for retro-fit.

"the 99 ejects."

The newer ones do not eject, the specifications are on this link;

Copied from the link; ?Extractor The BT-99 features an extractor only."

Thanks you guys. My BT99 does not lift the shells up very much to extract, so I just thought that I might be able to put ejectors into it to save myself the trouble. Thanks again, Matthew.

FYI & reference;

Mine is a 2005 manufacture, bought NIB last Feb. and lifts the shell 3/8" above the breech end of the barrel when fully open.


I could be imagining this but I seem to have seen some guns made 3 or 4 years ago that did not lift them as high, could be O.T.L. on that though.

My BT was made in 2003, so it is fairly knew. I am the second owner, but the guy before me only shot it once, so I mainly got it brand new. I shot an older one at one time and noticed that it ejected it a little more than my BT. Maybe I need to put some grease or something to losen it up?

Browning had a model...BT-99-2001. This gun did not eject. Machining operations on the forend were omitted, for the ejector hammer and spring. I think also they omitted the hole in the receiver for the ejector trip rod.

The older BT99's lift the shell further than the newer BT99's. I bought a used BT99 (2001 model) and had a hard time grabbing the shell with gloves on. I compared the extractor height to my friends older BT99 and his lifted the shell much further. I ordered a replacement extractor (2 pieces) thinking mine was worn or damaged. Turns out they were fine. I can't see any practicle way to lift the shell further on my newer BT99 without major work.

I was (just for fun) contiplating drilling a small recieving hole in between the 2 pieces of the extractor to hold a short spring, just enough to add an 1/8 inch more lift.

Hawk,
