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 have a Special Sporting, 12ga 30". Factory Adj comb. Wood has nicks/scratches, gun was a shelf gun @ a local gun shop. I cleaned the packing grease out and the gun hasnt had 1500 rounds since.

    Does not come with box or paperwork. Bought it with the 2 invector+ tubes that were in it.

    Lever to the wood, tight as new.

    Looking for $1300 shipped. Email above.

    I had one of these in the hi-post rib model about ten yrs ago. I could just pound trap doubles, sporting clays, and skeet with this gun. Then I thought I needed an XT and traded it in...one of the worst mistakes I ever made.

    Have a 28" Special Sporting Clays. The barrel had some issues (external rust - interior surface perfect) so I had it re-blued at Glenrock Bluing. Wood is in very nice shape. Will sacrifice for $950. Photos upon request.

    Bought mine in February from Guns Unlimited: 12 ga, 30" bbl; comes with invector choke tubes (M, IC, S) and 3-trigger shoes for approximately 13-3/4" to 14-1/2" adjustable LOP for $1,995 plus tax. Also purchased a Browning hard case(32"-bbl)due to receiver/stock accomodation and CTs (IM, F). You can also get a Gracoil adjustable comb for another $175 plus tax, as applicable.

    Ask for Dan at (402)339-0771.

    Oddly enough, I can also shoot Skeet, Trap, or Sporting with my 12 ga Special Sporter. It is NOT for sale.

    I know better than to sell it, it fits me better than any tournament gun I have ever owned.

    The 20 and 410 are the most fun guns I have. The 20 will boil a bird with the right chokes. The 410 will not smoke a Sporting target, but it will break them further away than one would think. LOL

    My first sporting clays gun was a Special Sporting Clays with 30" barrels. I still have it and really don't want to part with it. Great guns for the money. I have a friend that claims he has had one rebuilt by browning 3 times. I don't know about that but I do know a ton of shells have gone through it so I really don't doubt it. I bought mine used in 1992.
