The Browning BT-99 was one of the most popular-selling single-shot shotguns in volume of sales on GunBroker.com last year. It took fifth place in the category for 2019 and it’s been a popular choice among enthusiasts since it was first introduced in 1969.
The choice of models available today is more diverse than ever before, though, and each are seen regularly on the firing lines during American singles and handicap trap matches. These shotguns have the kind of looks that turn heads and all the performance we’ve come to expect from Browning.
New this year is the BT-99 Micro with Adjustable Length of Pull. It’s ideal for young shooters, but doesn’t compromise any of the features that make the line so popular.
The 12-gauge, chrome-plated chamber accepts 2.75" shotshells and it comes with a 30" satin-blued barrel. The stock also allows for toe-in/toe-out adjustment at the recoil pad, as well as up-and-down positioning.
The satin-finished Grade I walnut stock provides a timeless look that complements that signature gold-plated triggerguard that sports a Buckmark logo. Sights are an ivory bead up front with a mid-bead on a 11/32" rib. It ships with a Full choke for the shotgun’s Invector-Plus choke system. Overall length is 46.5", it tips the scales at 7 lbs., 12 oz. and MSRP is $1,699.99. The non-length-of-pull adjustable Micro model has a price of $1,509.99.
For more experienced shooters the BT-99 line has five other models currently in production. The basic version has a trap style recoil pad, walnut stock with satin finish, the same sights, and is available in 12-gauge with either a 30" or 32" barrel. MSRP is also $1,509.99.
If you want something special, though, take a look at the BT-99 Max High Grade (seen above). With a Graco adjustable stock, GraCoil recoil reduction system, adjustable high-post rib, gloss oil finish on Grade V/VI walnut, ejector and more, it’s top of the line. MSRP comes in at $5,439.99 whether you go with the 32" or 34" barreled model. They’re also 12-gauge and chamber 2.75" shotshells.
