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 sourced prices for these off of GA and Gun Broker. Let me know if I'm out of line. I'll pay shipping.

    Thanks for looking.

    I just went by the description that was on other websites. "Fully shrouded" describes the shell removal rod. The early versions of this gun the rod was "exposed". I'd post a picture of 2 versions but that would probably cause more confusion?

    Thanks

    Wouldn't a gun with the Hammer not showing be hammerless or shaved hammer gun? I always thought the barrel shroud referred to the rod as the OP stated.

    Nice guns by the way. I had a Colt Police Positive and traded it off on something i just had to have at the time. I regreted getting rid of that gun the moment i did it. Live and learn. Up for Jim.

    There are barrel shrouds and there are hammer shrouds.

    This has a barrel shroud.

    The guns where the frame covers the hammer (rather than a separate shroud) - like a S&W Bodyguard - are also sometimes called "hammerless". Obviously a misnomer.
