A fellow from the internet wants to sell a couple of older fixed-choked Browning BT-99 barrels.

I have a couple of older BT-99 shotguns which are likely from the same era as his barrels.

What is the likelihood that the barrels will work with my gun...

Without any gunsmithing ?

With gunsmithing the barrel but not modifying my frame or forend ?

I have 1969 & 1970 model years BT-99's. Nothing fits on the other gun.

I shoot the '69 better so I asked Doug Braker (gunsmith in Minnesota)if he could make the '70 barrel fit the '69 frame and forend. He said the older the BT-99 the harder it was to do, and he wouldn't quote anything until he saw both guns.

I kind of got a between the lines read of he could do it, but you probably won't like the bill.

What's wrong with the barrels you have now? If you want different chokes, Carlson's choke installation offers 3 extended chokes, and 2 wrenches for $145. A lot cheaper than having barrels fitted.

Nothing wrong with my current barrels.

Guess it's just an interesting idea to me.
