I own a older BT plus , great gun for the money . But I recently shot a Browning XT and it was a very nice feeling gun also Not sure of you price range but both are worth consideration.Like many, I grew up shooting my Dad's old 870 throughout High School and College. It served me well, I would often shoot between 20-23 targets. I recently joined a Trap club in my area and have been shooting a lot more regularly with a rental BT-99. I have improved my score to an average of about 23-24 targets. With tax-return on the way, I am thinking about investing in a proper Trap gun. At this point, I am not interested in shooting doubles, just singles and handicap. I love the BT-99 that I rent at the club and have shot a few variations from members at the club. I have decided on a 34" barrel an adjustable comb and an adjustable butt pad.
My question is this, is there a certain period (old/new) BT-99 that is more desirable? I really like the BT-99 Plus that Browning has on their website. I like the scroll work and higher quality wood. I have a few options to buy older used guns but neither are as elegant as the Plus model.
Thanks for any help/ advice!
