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.

    I would like to know what a fair price would be for a Browning Superposed Diana. I know what it would be worth if it were perfect, but it isn't. It is the trap model with the Broadway rib, and manufactured in 68. It has 32 inch barrels and is choked full over improved modified. It was made in the middle of the salt era, but is not a salt damaged gun. The buttstock is a midas grade and not numbered to the gun. It has been cut so the lop is thirteen and three quarter inches. It only has very minor dings on the wood and metal. The forend is original and numbered to the gun and matches the butstock for color and grain. Mechanically the gun is in very good shape, but the lever is all the way to center. I would send it to Trap2's gunsmith as he only charges $125 to rebuild the locking block, but I need to sell it now. So for you Superposed experts, what would be a fair price that would get this gun sold?
    Thanks,
    Cliff

    Unloader,
    The rib hasn't been resoldered, the chokes are original, and the trigger is pull pull.
    Thanks,

    Ajax, Sorry I haven't settled on a price yet. I was hoping to get a little more input first.
    Thanks, Cliff

    According to Blue Book, which is just a reference book, 95% would be $4,200, 90% would be $2,750 and 80% would be $2,450. Since it has been altered and needs to be tightened-up, it makes it difficult to evaluate. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and therefore it is worth what someone will pay for it.
