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.

    Posting for friend: Early 60's I am told

    Superposed Pointer Grade 12 Gauge Browning.

    Gun is in very good condition.
    Engraving is complete as made, there has been
    no attempts to brighten or polish finish.
    Few handling marks. Usually one like this
    has a value of somewhere around $7500 blue Book listing.
    This pointer has been modified (Sorry to
    Say). The barrel has been messed with by
    Briley, Cut from a 28 in. to 26 in. to install ThinWall choke tubes.
    Case is included, do not know if this is
    Browning or aftermarket.
    Lever looks to be in middle.
    Other items look normal, pictures
    shows items included.
    $4000 plus ship to your FFl

    How are you going to get a new barrel from FN? They wont make you a new barrel for this gun. I new a gentleman that called them for a pigeon grade salt gun that he had bought. The barrels were cut down and had briles thin walls in them. He had contacted FN. They told him the only making barrels for custom shop guns.

    Did not know this. I assumed the Custom Shop would do anything for a price. I guess not.
