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.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Send it to Krieghoff and have them do it with the proper tools. If you crossthread it, repair is going to be VERY expensive or impossible, and I doubt you can buy a tool that will to as good a job as the tools Krieghoff owns.

    I use a 10 gauge brass brush chucked up in a cordless drill and run it in reverse after I jam it straight in half way past the threads. It just unscrews itself along with any crap in the barrel threads.

    One of the ways we deal with a flat thread in industrial maint. is to unscrew it about a quarter turn from tight and tap it straight into the barrel using the butt of a hammer handle. Then loosen it another quarter turn and repeat, until you've done it for a couple of full revolutions. Failing that, send the barrel to Ottsville inside a piece of PVC pipe with threaded end caps and lots of bubble wrap around the barrel and a dish towel inside each end of the tube.
