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.

    MOVED TO GUNBROKER: search 31 TC starting bid $749 no reserve


    Was not planning to sell but someone was looking for a Remington 870 and I said I would sell my 31 TC for $899.00 delivered to FFL.

    All numbers match. Action is remarkably smooth and the wood is in my humble opinion spectacular.

    Includes extra firing pin.

    30 inch full choke. 12 gauge

    I refinished the wood. The metal is nice but it has some age freckles and normal wear.

    Pad is a 1960's or 70's Mershon new old stock professionally fitted.

    Any interest in a Remington 31 TC?
    $899.00 delivered to your FFL.

    I do not think the barrel lug was ever tightened in its 69 year history

    You may want to move it over one notch

    In my opiion, however, this gun is ready to rock and roll!

    I enjoy tremendously.

    The threads of the barrel turn into threads that fit in a bushing that fits in the receiver

    The bushing can be rotated if a tighter fit is wanted

    The bushing is held in place by a thing with teeth that fits into teeth on the bushing. The bushing can be rotated I think six to eight teeth as necessary.

    The bushing is currently in the position where it has never been tightened.

    I think the Winchester Model 12 has a similar system. It is an example of the high quality hand fitting that makes these guns so special

    Hope this helps

    This is an awsome pump trap gun with low recoil and the wood is real nice.

    I am selling because a pump is less than ideal for use with my son. The action is so slick that with the action open and the muzzle pointed down the action can close by itself.
    My son would rather a break open so that while waiting his turn on the line he can keep the gun open with a shell in the chamber. Then he can bringing the gun up to close, shoulder and fire.

    This is a fine gun that is for sale here. It was bought from me a while back and the new owner made it look great.

    There is not a thing wrong with the action on this gun. I shot it quiet often before I sold it, You wont go wrong with this fine gun if you like the 31-TC, that's for sure.

    Please note:

    I shoot lefty (lefty not lefties) and this pump os better suited to a right handed shooter.

    Also, my internet is on the fritz and I am working off my blackberry.

    As soon as I get my internet working gun will be put on Gunbroker

    Regards

    Lou

    The Remington 31 is probably the best pump shotgun ever made. I know model 12 guys, especially from home, will give me a hard time about that but I believe it to be true. They are the slickest and shortest pumping action there is.

    What Bushy was trying to describe above is an adjustment feature designed to tighten the barrel to the receiver should heavy loads cause it to loosen from wear. Model 12's use the same feature and that greatly lengthens the life of these guns. What Bushy calls a 'bushing' is called a 'chamber ring' by Winchester. It is a male threaded steel ring that screws into the receiver's female threads. Both guns have a geared, manually removable 'lock' to keep the chamber ring from unscrewing and for removal of the ring.

    Both guns are great. I give the edge to the Remington for easier and shorter shucking.
