    Looking at a 700 in 85 to 90% condition. Very nice wood, receiver is fully engraved, broadway rib, F/IM. I've only owned Browning O/U's. What is Greener cross bolt action? Is there any major problems with this model? Thanks in advance for any info, Wayne

    Wayne: Greener Cross Bolt. When you open gun you will see two large lugs. There will be another Lug which protrudes out the right side of reciever. When you close the action this protruding lug goes across the other two. This design has been around for probablly 150 plus years. Very strong, prevents barrels from seprerating from back of receiver. Sometime known as head space wear. I own an SKB 600 trap mfg. in early seventies. After all these years only had replace 1 vee spring. Same set up as some P-Guns.

    This is a Greener action from a good while back. If you are familiar with the DT10, same crossbolt; strong & heavy.

    A fairly rare and originally expensive gun

    I have one I bought used and saw one new for sale at $1750, in 1977

    Solid heavy gun
