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.

    The rib on 253 is a Roger Eubanks rib from his (Rogers) factory. Roger also has done 3 Alfermann-style ribs which have a different adjustment mechanism. When I sold the gun new, it was a fixed rib @100% and fixed chokes. The first owner had the Briley chokes installed. I traded for the gun without wood and had Roger do the rib. I am responsible for the wood, which is a tall comb, Silver-dollar stock.

    I have shot the gun some and it shoots good. Jack is good to deal with, and will help make the deal, as will I. I was on the phone with a fellow who had questions today and seemed very interested. 636-456-1012...let me know...merlyn

    Even if it is a Eubanks Rib, who cares? Roger is a great barrel and rib guy. He re-ribbed my first Alf. PERFECT workmanship and blueing.

    Roger and the Alf brothers have had a very close working relationship.

    My Alf was #149 a Silver Dollar special that had a great easily removable rib "insert" . It was really neat in that you could change ribs for POI with a screwdriver. Roger Eubanks bored and choked it making the heavy barrel lighter (Most shooters big complaint about these guns). Pheasantmaster had it last. I sold it in a moment of stupity after tying for the GAH Handicap with a 99. AJ

    Wow! what a great post Tex. And did youknow that 12/250 2012 grand winners were ALF shooters? Yikes! Amazing when you consider the 300 guns that are out there.

    I took the gun down because of questions the buyer suggested made the gun aberrant.

    The rib is true Ewbanks. It is a hell of a gun. I have a flush Briley .028 on the way. .741/.028. Gary never lies... BTW... Thanks Gary. This gun has no recoil.
