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.

    Edited for content.

    These are some of the firearms that I will need to sell for the Widow of a long-time acquaintance and friend. Thanks for looking and telling anyone you know with such interests.

    Please do not use PM system for contact, thanks, since it won't notify my email to check. Straight email is listed above.

    Any particulars can be discussed by either emailing your phone# and/or calling the number posted on my website. Barrel prices are lower than you would get at the well-known resellers out there.

    Much appreciated.

    This (NOW SOLD) really nice piece is a boxed A-5 with Japanese mfg. and Belgium engraving limited edition that they called the Classic (1 of 5000), from the early mid-eighties.

    There are just the beginnings of rub marks on the barrel from the forend and a light smudge on the bolt face that shows firing has occurred, since even the factory test-fired every gun and barrel. This has evidently had minor shooting beyond that and then was wrapped back up. I do not know if he originally bought this new or if another owner was between him and the factory distributor.

    This was evidently put under his bed 25 years ago and forgotten up to now.
