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.

    This might sound a little nuts but I have a custom rifle stock for a long action Model 700 I'm not using and it's driving me crazy. Accordingly, I'm looking for a rifle to put into it. The rifle can be an ADL or BDL, blued or stainless and I prefer a 24" barrel but a 22" will also do, depending upon caliber. Obviously, the condition of the stock (if any) is unimportant but a nice stock can always be sold for $50 or so. Metal finish isn't terribly critical but bore wear is. And please - no .30-06s.

    Ed,
    Would you be interested in getting rid of the custom stock?

    Ed, I have an older 7mm Mag if you're interested. I've had it 37 yrs, stock is rough, but worth selling. Medal parts are very good, just some bluing wear. Send me a PM if you want to visit about the gun. Thanks David

    David, in terms of condition, your rifle sounds like an excellent candidate but I'm not partial to belted magnums. To get about the same level of performance, I'd rather go with a 280 Rem and have it rechambered to 280AI. I'll keep yours in mind, however.

    There is a large gun show in York, PA, this weekend and I'm hoping to find time to attend it. If I don't find something there, I might be in touch. Thanks for posting!

    Ed
