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 pending receipt of funds. This is another of my recently deceased best friend's guns. This is a Merkel 147EL Custom in 20 gauge. This gun is new, unfired, in original box with all original paperwork. Gun is a straight grip, splinter forend, double trigger, automatic safety and ejectors. Has super strong Greener style cross bolt with double under-barrel Locking lugs. It is an Anson and Deely box lock action with disc set strikers. Gun is hand engraved by master engraver Sebastian Weiss (signed) with game scenes on both sides. Wood on this gun is Luxury Grade Turkish Walnut and is beautiful as you can see in the pictures. Gun has 28 inch barrels and is fixed choked IC and Mod. Weight of the gun is 6 pounds 5 ounces. Stock dimensions are 1 1/2 X 2 7/16 X 14 1/2 to the checkered butt. Neutral cast at heel, slight cast off at toe of stock for the right hand shooter. List price on this gun is $6299 from Merkel dealers. Price on this new, unfired, gun in perfect condition is $4500 plus actual shipping charges to your FFL. As always there is a three day, non-firing inspection period on this gun with buyer paying shipping both ways if returned. Contact me at esetter5@me.com with any questions you might have on this beautiful little 20 gauge gun.

    He shot a lot of his gun, but some he bought just because he liked them and he put them away.

    Gerry, the LOP is to front trigger I assume, right? Never owned a Merkel before, but they are top quality. Quail hunter in TX I know, shoots a 16 ga. Merkel O/U, nice guns. Thanks,.....Rob

    This Merkel has all the features you want in a Merkel sxs.
    I have a couple,and can attest.
    I have 30k shells thru mine,not a lick of trouble,and still tighter than most new guns.
