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.

    To summarize about the " Salt wood debacle"........During the mid-60's, Browning Arms had difficulty finding higher grade wood for their fast selling Superposed guns.The claro walnut, and some french walnut was, instead of kiln-dried, covered in salt, to pull moisture from the wood, in order to "speed" up the drying process, and in turn, have better quality wood available in shorter time. This was common on many browning firearms, both the Superposed, and bolt-action rifles, built between 1967 and 1969, although it did show up as late as 1972. The easiest way to visually check for this salt damage from a stock that was dried using this process, is to check where the stock meets the receiver. You'll see pitting all around where the stock meets the receiver. Also, if you are unsure, pull the two screws holding the pad or buttplate on, and if they are clean, no rust, then you are safe. Salt damage was more evident on higher grades, but can be found on the Grade 1, which I am selling.
    I am selling because I prefer side by sides, thats all. This is a very nice gun, still very tight throughout.........Thanks,.........Rob
