1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Yes - only 1000. I have a friend with 2 NIB that he won't part with for love nor money.

    Value? There have been a few F/S for sale in the $1000 range if memory serves. They don't last long on the market.

    I was hoping this thread was about one you had for sale.... Darn.

    If the wood on all of them looks like the A-A wood on my TC, they are gorgeous. When I complained about the muddy-looking "satin" finish on my then-new 870TC back in the late 1980s, I had so many warranty cards on file for new Remington firearms they had their custom shop make wood for it using All-American blanks and finished it in the old RK-W gloss. A lot of Remington enthusiasts think it is an F-grade gun on first glance.

    Like Joe, a nice 870 All-American is on my short list of guns I'd like to have.

    There was one at the Pa state shoot at Roger F's, he wanted $1000.00, I went back the next day it was gone.

    Do you think the 870 All American is nicer than the 31 TC?

    The 31 TC's seem to go for less than $1,000, but they have also been used.

    Here's mine:

    Bushmaster. Yes, I think the All-American is better looking.

    2 all-Americans have shown up on the forum over tha past 3 years.

    buschmaster1313- that is a beautiful 31. rem model 31 tc is made better than the all american 870, and the 31 has a better choke in that barrel. i have owned both guns, it is like comparing apples to oranges. my first all american i purchased in the 70's when it first came out for $500.00 + tax. around 20 years ago i sold the gun new in the box to a local gun shop and i was paid $800.00. she sold it for $1000.00. i am a 870 collector, and i have owned 3 all americans, 2 of them i tried shooting and both shot different than a reg 870 tb or tc. i have no idea why. it is a beautiful looking gun though.
    good luck,
    steve balistreri
