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.

    Gun has been sold, thanks. What a rare find! This is an Ithaca SKB in the popular model 280 which is brand new, unfired, in original box (just noticed serial number is a few numbers off) with the owners manual. Just like it has been locked up in a time capsule (actually a good friend's safe). This gun is perfect in every way, not a mark on the bluing or the wood, and the only negative I can say about the condition is the box is a little worn as you can see in the picture. Other than that the gun is perfect with not a mark on it. As a matter of fact, I don't believe the gun had ever been assembled before I took these pictures. This gun has 26 inch barrels, with 2 3/4 inch chambers and is choked improved cylinder and modified. Has straight grip, beavertail forend, very nice engraving as you can see in the pictures and long trigger tang. These 280's are so popular a gun that is being produced today, the RBl, uses the same action. Stock dimensions are 1 1/2 X 2 1/2 X 14 3/16 over the original butt plate with neutral cast. The gun weighs 6 pounds 15 ounces on my digital scale. What a great pheasant, quail, grouse, gun this will be. This model was discontinued in 1980 so the gun is at the very least 31 years old and probably older. Price of this lovely little gun is . Contact me at esetter5@me.com with any questions you might have on this brand new, old SXS.

    If it were a twenty it would be about $800 more but I wish it was too. My best friend has hunted grouse with a 20GA 280 for years and loves it. This would be a perfect pheasant gun.

    A great gun from a great seller. These 280's are the bargains of the double gun world. WAY undervalued for what you get.........
