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.

    Selling for a friend - One Win. model 12 pigeon grade trap with 30" full choke barrel. This really nice shotgun has "B" carved wood and has been modified by the previous owner. It has an adjustable comb and Gracoil LOP adjustable recoil unit. The metal is in very nice condition with exception of some pitting under the forearm around the "pigeon", which is not detectable unless you look under the forearm. The barrel has been ported, but tastefully done with small holes in lines of two. The wood has some handling marks with one scratch on the buttstock. My Win. DOM book dates this Model 12 to 1949.

    Before you "pricing experts" go out of your way to down-grade this shotgun because of the modifications, the current owner had nothing to do with them and he can't change them now.

    The price is $1,400 + shipping & insurance to your FFL. Those living in Indiana and contiguous states can make arrangements to pick it up.

    He is also offering a nickel plated trigger group for an additional $100. This group is in excellent condition.

    Thank you for looking,

    Steve

    Surprised it doesn't have choke tubes also.

    kolardude, You need to see a Winchester book on factory checkering patterns. This checkering pattern only has a slight resemblance to the factory 12 B pattern. I do the factory 12 B pattern on special wood and would be ashamed to put out a job like that. That looks like about maybe 18 lpi and the factory jobs would be 22 or 24, never less. Actually, the checkering mess ruined the value of pretty nice wood. And I certainly am not a prospective customer trying to run the price down. No Thanks!

    Larry, I think you're wrong and it may be because of the way the flash hits the checkering. I have seen many "B" carved stocks and these look like all of the others and it is 22 LPI.

    But I do thank you for your opinion.

    Steve
