Just picked up a 1972 BT99 in excellent shape. Questions are: did all of them have "Special" on the barrel and what was the normal LOP for a gun this old? It's a fixed full with 34" barrels with high polish bluing.

Thanks

Bob

I have a 1972 BT99 that has "special" on the barrel also. I had a spacer and new recoil pad installed because the old Browning pad was so hard also I'm 6' 5" and needed more LOP. I believe that the LOP prior to installing the new pad and spacer was 14 3/8.

I believe the "special" means special steel. The standard LOP if I can remember was 14 3/8". Let me know if you ever sell it. Shot my first 25 with this exact gun. Same year, barrel, etc. Jon

Stl Flyn (Jon),

I shot it for the first time today and it hit everything I shot at. Very tight, ejectors throw the shells ten feet. Somebody cut the buttstock or replaced it and with a very old pad the LOP only is about 13.75".

I will keep you in mind. I probably will sell it. I'm looking for another TM1.

BOB,

Why sell it, if you shot that good?

I would like an all original gun, even though it sounds pretty nice.
I just wish people would not cut the original stocks. I have been through this before. LOP on my KS-5 is 14 5/8". Jon
