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 need a higher rib on my BT-99. The temporary one, made from balsa wood, gave me my first 100-straight, but fell apart after two years and I either place a permanent higher rib on it or sell it. I may send the barrel to Keen-Sights but thought I'd try here first just on the off-chance that someone may have a 32" add-on rib left over from a project. The ideal elevation would be .5 inches at the back end and .25 inches in the front. Many thanks.

    LA, look for a store called "Metal Supermarket". They carry almost any size aluminum square section bars. A 32" piece will cost $8-10 . Take it to a mill, give them the dimensions and they can cut it for about $60-75 . Glue it on your gun with the black silicon from the auto parts store. I did mine on a Charles Daly and it looked like a million bucks. I would post pics if I knew how, Peter.

    I have been thinking about that for years. Had several Browning BT 99's an BT 100's. The problem I have found is some of them especially the BT 100 shoot to high for me. I did build a couple test blocks for the 100 raising the rib on the end 1/4 inch. The 100 shot a lot flatter which helped a lot. A couple of raising blocks are easy to build as when looking down the rib when gun is mounted it appears the rib is full length.
    As son is buying a machine shop I was wondering if there would be any interest in professionaly manufactured rib's to order. ??? Thanks Steve
