Hi fellas.

This is my first try at posting a pic.
So I thought I would try to post my new to me Browning BT-99.
I paid 600 bucks for it. I know I got a smoking deal on it.
Now I have to learn how to shoot it correctly. (Prado)

Features:
JS air shock stock by Joe Shiozaki
Looks like a BT-99 MAX barrel and rib.
Ported barrel
Invector plus screw in chokes.
Made in Japan
2 bead sights. Front sight is a big white bead. The mid barrel sight is a smaller white bead.

Looks almost like it has never been shot. Must be low round count. No dirt. No wear to speak of.

Hopefully it is a shooter.

If they are properly maintained Brownings don't look like they've been shot until 50K or so rounds are through them.... :)

Very nice, and a great score.

Your BT-99 is just like the one I saw at our range yesterday. Printed on each side of the receiver is "BT-99 AR" The "AR" stands for "adjustable rib". It is sold by Monsoor Sport Shop in La Crosse Wisconsin. Looks like they have them made for the shop. The have them for auction on Gun Broker (new)for $2k++. So you got one heck of a deal. Think I'll buy one. How about selling me yours for, oh, say...$700? LOL

Thanks Squeeze,

I wondered where the heck that rib came from.

Today I called up the shop that made the air cushion shock.
They did the stock work on it 6 years ago. For $1340.00
Holy sheeit.

I also put a 110 Lbs of air in the air cushion shock today. IT WORKS..!!
No Leaks.

I can't wait to get over to Prado. Gte some trigger time in.
Then get some lessons from you guys. As I am the consummate neophyte when it comes to using a shot gun.

Thanks for the input..

Drool! Very nice gun, you will have some fun shooting that. Did you know the person you bought it from or was it just a lucky find?

In regards to where I found this shotgun....

I bought this from Grants for Guns in Costa Mesa.

This was one of those rare times that nobody knew exactly what it was.
It sat on the back shelve for 30 days as a consignment piece for 900 bucks.

Then Randy (co-owner) dropped the price to 700 hundred and I talked him down to 600. Done deal.
I've known Randy for 30 years. He treats me very well.

This was just one of those lucky deals. I have that happen 3 or 4 times a year.

Now I am on the hunt for a Citori Golden Clays that I can swap for or get at a smokin price. If it is out there. I will find it.
