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.

    A friend has passed on and his widow wants me to move some of his collectible guns and misc. that he had accumulated over many years.

    The first really nice piece is a boxed A-5 with the Japanese mfg. and Belgium engraving limited edition that they called the Classic, from the early mid-eighties.

    Those that have an interest can email me or call the number on my website.
    I can send specific pictured areas for those serious about owning something special that looks to be no more than occasionally fired.

    There are just the beginnings of rub marks on the barrel from the forend and a light smudge on the bolt face that shows firing has occurred, since even the factory test-fired every gun and barrel. This has evidently had minor shooting beyond that and then was wrapped back up. I do not know if he originally bought this new or if another owner was between him and the factory distributor.

    This was evidently put under his bed 25 years ago and forgotten up to now.

    ps
    There will be some single shot rifles of many varieties, so if there is an interest in them, let me know and I'll have a special email made to let me respond to all that want notice as they are made available.

    Anybody know of good places to post those rifles, please email me.
    There is a Quigley in the bunch, you know, that big 45-120 Sharps, plus a number of Browning singles and a few A-5's and barrels, like a NIB Buck Special barrel.
