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.

    I've decided to sell my Merkel 47 SL because I just never shoot a 12 gauge gun. This particular gun is in near perfect condition and has been shot very little as you will see in the photos. I cannot find a mark on the wood and there is no wear to the bluing. I will say the gun is 99% condition. This is a true sidelock in the Holland and Holland style and has cocking indicators, with side clips. Uses the Greener cross-bolt locking system with double under barrel locking lugs. This is a double trigger gun with automatic safety and ejectors. Gun has 28 inch barrels, 3 inch chambers, and has a bore of .732 in both barrels. Chokes are .010 in the right and .016 in the left making this a great upland gun, perfect for pheasant. Stock is straight grip, splinter forend, luxury grade, oil finished walnut, and has dimensions of 1 1/2 X 2 1/2 X 14 5/8 over the original butt plate. Gun has 5/32 inch cast off at the top and 1/4 inch at the bottom for the right hand shooter. Gun has hand cut Arabesque engraving. Weight of the gun is 6 pounds, 12 ounces, and balances wonderfully. Price of the gun is $3800 delivered to your FFL in the continental US. Email me at esetter5@me.com with any questions you might have on this fine sidelock.

    Very nice gun, I have been thinking I need something like this.
    When I was much younger I shot a Winchester 21 trap model with a beavertail forearm. I was hoping for a beavertail forearm.
    But I like you would likely enjoy 20 Ga. better !
    By the way, very nice gun !!

    The 20's are nice, but if you are hunting wild pheasants or sharptails flushing wild, or maybe ducks this would be the perfect little gun.

    I'm pretty sure you haven't been that good, but she should buy it for you anyway, just because she feels sorry for you.

    If it were a 20 it would be at least $1000 higher in price, and as you said, this is a great set up for sporting clays.

    Owner really prefers a cash sale rather than a trade. He is trying to thin out his collection of guns.
