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.

    As they say, you need a release mouse!

    That piston attaches to the bottom of the barrel and slides into the "magazine tube" as the barrel is installed onto the receiver. It is propelled backward by combustion gasses and what would be the magazine spring in a normal 870 propels it forward again to take recoil off the shoulder. It's much like an 1100's bolt being moved back with gas pressure and forward again by the recoil spring in the stock. And it works just as effectively - an 870 Competition feels and sounds just like an 1100 when you shoot one. There's very little recoil, you feel the weight movement and you hear a "clunkety-clunk" sound through the stock. You just don't need a shell-catcher.

    This piston residing in the magazine tube is why Competitions are single-shot 870s.

    The guns were only made from 1980 through 1986 and were considered to be too expensive "for an 870" so they didn't sell well back then. But they are very unique.

    Their barrels are considered to be Remington's best work - they all were choked Full with between .035" and .040" of constriction and were overbored to as much as .740". The stocks all had straight combs but those combs were higher than other 870 trap stocks of any style, so the guns shoot higher than typical 870 trap guns. The stocks also have a fuller and more curved pistol grip, the forend wood extends back to the receiver and the checkering pattern is unique to the Competition model.

    I've owned a few and all have been a lot of fun to shoot; the photo above is of my favorite two. By the way, that extra barrel in the photo shows the sliding weight as it attaches to the barrel.
