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.

    Unfortunately, without the barrel that they were fit to, their value is almost nil, because the likelihood of fitting them to, or being able to have them fit another set of barrels is almost non-existent. The Purbaugh tubes were one piece aluminum, so they are not as refit friendly as modern tubes are (even the practice of re-fitting to a non-original barrel is discouraged with modern tubes).

    Even with the original barrel, there is only a slight increase in value over the barrel by itself. They are fun to play with, but are not in use by any serious competitors anymore.

    If you can find someone to give you $200-$300 for the lot on the hopes that they can make it work, take it and run.

    Why not do the right thing and get them to the buyer of the gun?

    It sounds like he did the right thing, he sold a K-32 to someone, he didn't know it had a tube set and didn't price the gun with a tube set.
    He could offer them to the buyer of the gun if he can locate the person.

    Purbaugh was a pioneer in the production of tube sets in the 1970's. I believe the principal's name was Claude Purbaugh. His equipment was very "good stuff". What knocked them out of the market for Briley and others... I do not know.

    I believe the guy who bought the gun had the 28" skeet barrels listed on here awhile back for $900, maybe he'll see this.

    Purbaugh tubes were the only game in town for tubes until Skeetmaster started making tubes in the 70's. Both tube makers had their sets with individual and separate extractors/ejectors. I'm not positive but Skeetmaster may have sold to Briley. If Claude was not in his 80's in the early 70's he was near there. If Briley did not buy Skeetmaster it might have been a coincidence that when Briley and then Kolar came out with their tube sets with integrated tubes it was 'game-over'. Extractors were gauge specific and with two per gauge they were not difficult to lose or break. Purbaugh tubes stuck out from the end of the barrel about a 1/4" so it was easy to tell on the line who was shooting a sub-gauge. Go back and check the records, it was these tube sets that took took skeet scores to a higher level. Ammunition did improve but the tube set revolution was started in the 70's with Purbaugh's and 4x4's were being posted almost every month it seemed. Tube sets set the stage for the demise of the 4 barrel sets. The balance was much more consistent.
