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.

    In my experience, the barrel would likely need fitted. Your forearm may not fit flush when the gun is closed. Now, if your barrel is ruined, then it may be worth the hassel. Back about 25 years ago Leo in Library, PA sold me a barrel out of a 2 barrel set and 10 minutes later he fitted it to my BT-99; unfortunately, the forearm did not fit properly and would work loose as the forearm lock would work open after 25 rounds. I then contacted Browning and of course they wanted more than the cost of the barrel to fit it. Boy was I stupid for attempting this. Darrell

    Some ribs are higher than others, causing a mismatch where the barrel meets the receiver, most barrels fit the receiver with a minimum or no fitting required, but as stated the forends are a problem. If you are trying to make a two barrel set the likelihood of the forend fitting both barrels is slim, however if you have a receiver, iron and wood I'd say go for it. I've bought and sold barrels in the $300 to $400 range. I have two back at the shop and I believe one has a fitted forend on it. I'll be away until the middle of next month. If interested email me and I'll see what I can do when I get home.
