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.

    Well, ya gotta admit that it does ask you real special like if you know WTF you're doing. It really ain't that hard to figure out, is it?

    Maybe Gary is getting old like me and his frustration tolerance for certain kind a things is getting low.

    BTW Doc, if you come across on that has the 28/30 combo set and a schnabel forend that was mine. I swapped forends w/ Winchester. I don't recall the name of the gentleman there but he was just way helpful. Roman put me in touch w/ him.

    I purchased one about 15 years ago NIB put less then 500 rounds thru it and sold it. It was one of the few guns that I actually made money on.Nothing wrong with it just did not fit me well and I had a lot of brusing.If I remember correctly flat or oil finish, choke tube on the top with a fixed barell on bottom or vice versa 28.5/29/5" barell

    You will love it - that is my favorite gun of all of mine. No, it's not for sale. If possible, get the two barrel set with choke tubes. Some came with fixed chokes.

    Dr Larry,

    If it is OK with Gary.

    Winchester made tha American Flyer for only 3 years. The rib on this gun is special to the American Flyer.

    When they first came out you had the chioce of 28 inch x-full over Win Choke. Then you could get a 29-1/2 inch model which were tubed in both barrels. Then you could get the 2 barrel set which was 28 and 29-1/2 barrels, both were x-full over WinChokes.

    At the end of production they were making them with the 28 inch guns with x-full over Winchokes, 29-1/2 inch with Win Chokes in both barrels and the 2 barrel sets were Winchoked in all 4 barrels.

    My understanding is they only made 50, 2 barrel sets total, but I cannot confirm.

    I have not seen any of these gun without great wood. They were all sweet.

    I bought 1 in the 1st year with the 29-1/2 barrel so I could get the tubes. I also have a 2 barrel set with tubes in all the barrels. They both shoot nice and they balance well with either barrel set.

    They also have thier own special hard case and mine came with 2 x-full chokes, 2 full chokes and 1 modified choke.

    When you whack a flyer right out of the box with a x-full choke and 1-1/4 oz of copper 7-1/2's, they die real fast.

    There is what I know,and you get what you pay for.

    OB

    ps. I also have the original Winchester "Classic Doubles" literature.
