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.

    Red and Blue, Quiet a bit of difference, reddish - bluish,, color of your finger when smashed,, will be red , then in a few days, blue , then a slow transition to black before it falls off. I could not resist that one. :eek:)

    one is an international spring (I think the blue one but I don't recall for sure), more throwing power. You can throw regular skeet targets with an international spring, but not vice versa, and i believe the international springs were a little more durable.

    The OD on a blue spring is different. ID is the same.

    Redish (metal primer color) was the standard Western/Winchester. Black was their International and had a larger I.D.

    I believe blue springs were made by QRP, not WW.

    Sorry Neil but you are wrong. The red spring is the international and the blue was standard skeet. I took care of 24 winchester traps for 15 years. Jeff

    I stand by what I said. We just bought the coils, took the assembly apart and replaced the coil and rebushed as needed. About 6 years ago was the last time we bought coils and they alone were almost $60 dollars , Now we have Laporte's and Super stars. I personally opened the crate on a new 1574 Skeet machine years ago and it had the small spring and standard arm. Jeff
