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.

    Nice.

    Made in late 1914. Lightweight takedowns are not common.

    Notice the wood appears to be 'proud' (raised above the metal). This is a good indicator the wood was never sanded down and refinished, though it may have been resealed.

    I used to collect these as well as the 1885 Single Shots. Still have one 1886 project gun, plus a couple of Browning 1886 clones.

    Up for a nice gun...the 33Win was highly underrated and I'm a firm fan of 33-35 cal rifles..the bullets used in the 33 work awesome in my favorite levergun..the 338 Marlin Express...If I had the funds this gun would be mine
