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.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Sry, but it must be 100 years old + to be considered an antique...

    You're right about the new ones costing the same and they are different. The new ones have choke tubes instead of fixed IC. New also come without scratches or "repairable marring". I also agree with skeet man's statement. If it was a true "antique", no FFL transfer would be required. Love it when guns have over glorified descriptions in WTS listings.

    Your supposition is as accurate as your gun's description.

    This is a much more desirable gun that the ones coming out today as far as I'm concerned. Much better fit and finish than current production due to more hand fitting of parts. Work the action on the two iterations and you'll see what I mean.

    I have a 410 Model 870 for sale. The gun is not an antique, but the SELLER IS. LOL

    Coach, I bet that 870 .410 would be the ultimate upland game gun.
