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.

    24 Inch Moder 59 barrel. nice condition good bore. Not sure who installed ribs on these as I don't think it was the factory. Used to collect 59's and shoot them for quail. Need to clean up the gun safe so thought I'd try here. Asking $150.00 shipped. Will also sell the Model 59 if anyone is interested. PM if you need pictures of the gun.

    Interesting. I've never seen a rib on a 59. How is it held on, epoxy? Mod. choked as on the other non-tubed models?

    This is cyl. choked barrel. I assume it is on with some kind of epoxy. The gun is a win choked model with IC.

    Lookks like a Simmons rib to me. I've got one on a 59 with 26 inch barrel. Got the gun new as a kid (10 yr.) for quail hunting with my dad. New 59 cost $199.99 at Belknap Hdwre. in Louisville, Ky. Rib installed at Simmons cost $112.00 with shipping.

    I suspect the barrel pictured was a re-fit form a poly-choke or Cutt's Compensator. More than likely the Poly-Choke as it had replaced the Cutt's as the newest "go-to" gadget. Winchest 59's weren't offered in 24 inch barrels and were never made with factory vent ribs.

    Doesn't hurt anything as it looks like a nice cut job. Notice no bluing on the end of the barrel. Shows the fiberglaased barrel off really well.

    Just trying to add what I know. By the way, I've still got my Winchester 59 Vent rib I/C quail killing machine. Try to get it in the field once every year yet.
