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.

    I'm trying to find a value of an Belgium Browning A5 Auto 12ga. Mag. with a 31' vent rib barrel, full choke? It appears to be in very good condition with one scratch & one small dent in wooden round knob grip, very good blueing 95%?
    Thanks for your help, Bob

    I agree with the post above. Measure the barrel from the base of the chamber to the end of the barrel. That will give you the proper measurements.

    I don't know about the A5 but all of my Browning Double Autos measure a half inch short of 26", 28", or 30" from chamber to muzzle.

    If barrel length includes the chamber, would you not just measure from the face of the closed bolt to the muzzle???
