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.

    Gun is now sold- a Merkel 201 over and under in 12GA. This particular gun was built in September of 1962 and the workmanship is incredible. The fitting and lock up of this gun rivals any gun you will find. When you close the Kersten lock up system is sounds and feels like a bank vault closing. And, if you look at how the cross-bolt virtually disappears when the gun is closed you can tell the precision that was put into these guns.

    The particulars on this gun are as follows. The Bohler Stahl Barrels are 30 inches with 2 3/4 inch chambers and both barrels have bores measuring .734. The chokes measure .015 on the bottom for improved cylinder and .034 on the top for full. Vent rib is low profile and tapered from 9mm to 7mm with a front and middle white bead. Bluing is very good and original with only slight wear.

    The Prince of Whales grip stock has the following measurements 1 1/2 X 1 7/8 X 14 1/4 over the pad which appears to be original. Cast at heal is neutral and 1/4 inch cast off at the toe. Gun has a nice three piece forend. It appears someone added a coat of finish to the butt stock and this is really the only detraction from the gun. If someone were to refinish the butt you would end up with a beautiful high end gun. Oil finish on the forend is original. All screws on the gun are excellent condition and well timed.

    Receiver is scalloped and has wonderful game scene engraving with a Setter and birds on one side and pheasants on the other. Engraving is very high quality. Gun has a single, selective, MILLER single trigger. Gun also has cocking indicators. Trigger guard is engraved and has a deep rich bluing in excellent condition. Weight of the gun is 7 pounds 5 ounces.

    Pricing on this classic over and under is $3000 plus actual shipping to your FFL. As always there is a three day non-firing inspection period. I have personally fired this gun and it functions perfectly with extremely strong and well timed ejectors and that great selective Miller trigger. Contact me at esetter5@me.com with any questions you might have on this gun.
