I have an opportunity to buy a 2099 Trap for $980. I can't find much about them on the internet. They dont look much different than a 2097? Any thoughts, thanks, Joe

Hey joee12,

Check the Lanber site at www.lanber.net, the site is in Spanish, but there is a translation button to see it in English. This is the manufacturers website. Should be able to find what you are looking for there.

Cheers,
OMM

I called CDNN and asked if they had any new Lanbers, I told Seth that I was looking for something to shoot trap with. He mentioned that they had 2 2099s, I with the regular stock and one with the adjustable comb that had a blem on the stock. He said that they only list things in the flyer that they have several of. They also had a couple 2532s and a 2533 that had a crack in the stock. Give Seth a call at 800-588-9500 and ask him if they have that 2099 left, Joe

I picked up the 2099 at my FFL, what a nice gun. It is my first Lanber, the fit and finish are excellent. I won't get to shoot it until Saturday, and I can't wait. The gun has some nice features; 30 inch barrels, Monte Carlo stock with right handed palm swell and the rib has a channel milled in it to keep the front sight lined up. It has fixed Full and Improved Modified chokes. Even though I shoot singles right now, it will be a nice gun if I ever get into doubles trap. Here are a couple of pictures:

Hey joee12,

Very sweet! Very sweet indeed! Some nicely figured wood you've got there too... I have to say you've done good buddy! Welcome to the Lanber family! If the 2099 handles as well as the 2097's, I think you'll be very happy for a long time with this one... She's a true trap gun, so she should do well...

One word of advice, you might want to remove the stock and check the receiver to be sure it's: a) clean and free of debris; and b) has some lube in there... Dry, I mean bone dry, receivers are a common Lanber issue...

Clean 'er up, lube 'er up and get 'er out there breaking clays! Of cource we'll be waiting to hear the results of your first outing and your impression of the Lanber...

Congratulations!!!!

Cheers,
OMM

Joe, that looks like a 2099 Titanium, and it came with a Lanber hard case -- good deal! I thought you got the one with an adjustable comb?

Otheme, you are right, it is the titanium model. They had one with the adjustable comb stock available, but it had a ding in the stock, so I got this one.

Onemadmapper, thanks for the advice. I am going to take some time Friday night to clean her up and make sure it is lubed properly. Can't wait until Saturday :D

I shot 2 rounds of singles trap on Saturday with the 2099, what a nice gun. I am used to shooting a friends Model 12 Winchester, so this felt a little different. I am used to a white front bead and brass midbead, so it is going to take a little getting used to the red fiber optic and channel that is milled in the rib. It is very well balanced, has a smooth action and really felt nice to shoot. Some of the other shooters were very impressed with it, I let them shoot it some.

Question, is there a certain way I should store this gun? I have always used snap caps and put my over/unders in a gun sock, is there anything special I need to do besides, take apart, clean and put in the case? Thanks, joe

Hey Joe, thanks to you, I was able to pick up the other 2099 with adjustable comb. Couldn't see the blem at all. This appears to be a 2006 production, and it's labeled as "2099 Plus." Anyone knows the difference between 2099 and 2099 plus?

One thing I noticed is that there is no barrel selector and the lower barrel always fires first. Then I have to turn off the safety, and turn it back on to dry fire the upper barrel. Don't know how it will operate with live shells. Will try this weekend.

Here are some pics.

Hey that's great that you got the other one, it looks really nice. I am gald you couldnt find a blem, I am not sure why they told me that, they could have been thinking of another gun.

Not sure what the "plus" means, but mine operates the same as yours.

Let me know how you like it, I am going out on Saturday to shoot it again. I am still trying to figure out the sight picture, although I still shot pretty well with it. Joe

It will shoot the bottom barrel first and then the recoil from that shot sets the trigger to fire the upper barrel. Joe

Yea that sounds like a total steal from the pics I saw. Congrats. I wish I had called CDNN sooner and got one of those 2099s!

Don't quote me on this, but from what I can tell from Lanber's spanish site is: Plus really just means you have the adjustable comb which is an upgraded feature. Now I'd be impressed if someone manages to get their hands on a 2099TIT Plus, which I suspect means it has the titanium receiver too!

I paid about the same for mine. Now if Joe bought both from CDNN, he would have a 2099tit plus and a regular 2099, which he could sell for 1200 and he will have a tit plus for about 800 bucks. ;)
