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.

    Yes, I saw that the other evening. Was it an option to have no side ribs on a superposed?

    I have a ST100 and it is a great gun. This is the first regular Superposed that I have seen with no side ribs.

    FYI this is not an ST100, someone sent a lightning to simmons and had the side ribs stripped off and a k80 barrel hanger installed. Barrels look nothing like the ST100

    George, I sent you a PM.

    I'm not sure what it is called, but Glen Jensen the Browning historian looked up the serial number and confirmed that it was originally sold as a trap gun. He did not state a model number. If you contact the seller he will give you the serial number and you can call Glen to confirm.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    What good will that do? Of course it was an original trap gun, but what about the barrels. I agree, it is probably a Simmons conversion if the poster is right about it not looking like an original ST100. The gun has been well used and could easily have been modified from original. Can anyone send a picture of the original ST100?

    I'm not sure where all the discussion aboyut ST-100's came from. It is a Browning Lightning based on the receiver markings and a 30" trap configuration based on Browning's records. The barrels are Browning barrels. So how does that rule out the separate barrels? I thought that was an option.

    Never say never but I don't think a Superpose ever left the plant in Belgium without side ribs.
