I stopped at one of our local pawn shops this morning and they had a BT 99 for sale. It looked to me to be in about 90% or better condition and came with the Browning hardcase. I don't have pics but does anyone have an idea of what this is worth? They were asking $600 out the door...thanks...bull

you might offer 500-550, but it is worth more than the 600 they are asking if its in good con. eastbank.

For whatever its worth, ran in to a guy at a gunshow last weekend walking around with a BT99 in nice condition with a Browning hard case. He wanted $900 which I thought was a decent price if you need a trap gun. I would think one in 90% condition would be worth $600. . . .again, if you need a trap gun. Check the auction side for recent sales.

check to make sure it has removable chokes (they may or may not have made a 99 with fixed choke)

And make sure the ejector works!

if all that checks out I'd buy it and sell it for 900 on the other side

I'm noy sure of the chokes but I did notice it was made in Japan. Does that make a difference in what it is worth?

Taken from the Browning site...


Question:
Where are Browning firearms manufactured?
Answer:

Browning firearms have been traditionally made in locations world-wide. John M. Browning's first rifle, the Single Shot, was made in Ogden, Utah. The next guns carrying the Browning name were made in Belgium. This continued for many decades. This was the result of John M. Browning's lasting relationship with Fabrique Nationale, in Herstal, Belgium. Most Browning guns were made in Belgium by F.N. until the mid '70s when some production was shifted to Miroku in Japan. Today's Browning firearms are made in either Belgium, Portugal, Japan or in the United States. With some exceptions this is the breakout:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Browning Firearm Manufacturers


Belgium
Superposed


Belgium (assembled in Portugal)
Gold 12 and 20 ga. shotguns Silver shotgun, Maxus shotgun, Hi-Power Pistol, FN Pistols, BAR Mark II Safari Rifle, and BAR Shorttrac and Longtrac rifles.


Italy
The BDA 380 Autoloading pistol

Japan
Citori, Cynergy, BLR Lightweight, BLR Lightweight '81, A-Bolt II, X-Bolt, BT-99, BL-22 Rifle, Auto-22 Rifle, T-Bolt, BPS (all), and Gold 10 ga.

United States
Buck Mark Pistols and rifles




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The tradition of making Browning sporting firearms overseas was started with John M. Browning's Auto-5 semi-automatic shotgun design being produced by Fabrique Nationale in Belgium. Production on many of the models made in Belgium shifted to Miroku in Japan in the mid-70's due to significant cost increases in Belgium.


We at Browning consider ourselves an worldwide company. We are proud of our tradition of producing the world's best firearms at the worlds best factories -- where ever they be.

The BT 99s were all made in Japan, the older one's had fixed chokes and ejectors, the newer one's have choke tubes and extractors. $600. is a good price in the condition you described.

Thanks, Grizz

I picked up a two barrel BT 99 for my kid two years ago at a gun show; 34" & 32", fixed chokes, full & mod (I think). Probably a 85-90% gun for $650. No hard case for it and that's been a tough find; lots of single barrel cases around. Another fella at the same show had a solid 95% BT for $900 with one barrel. It was prettier but the two barrel gun won the day. $600 sounds like a good deal. Check the hinge for tightness.
