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.

    I will skip the smart remarks. Pretty gun. How much are you asking? Definitely interested at the right price.

    It looks as though his "other" thread states a price of $2500.00
    My estimate of DU gun values must be way off.

    His other thread says "Made in Japan"! WTF? Must be a Browning, not a Winchester. He's proud of it.

    coot shooter, your DU gun estimates are probably correct. Most of the DU guns are bought at DU dinners via auction. The auctions usually start several hours after the free bar opens. I had a lawyer friend that asked me to sell some of his father's DU guns, the father had owned a Pontiac dealership and was a die hard DU member. The two of them would pay a small fortune for these guns and thought they would make a big fortune. Most of their guns were valued about $50.00 more than a standard model. While the "engraving" is decent on these guns it is usually either etched or rolled.

    There were 4500 of them built. Cabela’s in Lacey WA had a couple of them on the rack for over a year. Nice little guns but very few guys are going to buy one for duck hunting.

    These guns like most DU guns are way over priced for what you get. Last year I sold to 12 Ga. Browning Gold DU gun for about 23 or 2400.00. The guy wanted something that looked good in the duck blind. He walked straight from my table over to a gunsmith and had sling swivels installed. We were all shaking our heads over that one.

    The gun on Gunbroker is a Browning, the one offered here is a Winchester.

    I think, based on his other threads, he said it is marked "made in Japan".

    I believe it was made by Browning under a license from Winchester, probably by Miroku, like all the other Browning Model 12's. I could be incorrect, but I would not pay Winchester prices for this.
