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'm looking for a set of flat comb "non" factory K-80 wood. The standard K-80 wood gives me a sore elbow, due to the slope in the grip. The New American or custom wood with a deep grip will work for me. I shoot a lot of drop. Please email or send pictures to Bubba.w@att.net. Take care and shoot well.

    "This stock and forend set was made by Paul Hillmer, Hillmer Custom Gunstocks, Hudson, IA for Jxxx Fxxx Kxxx. The wood is English walnut with an ebony cap. The adjustable butt plate was added after it left the shop. The roll comb and grip cap are the "Anton" style. Paul Hillmer apprenticed for R.J. Anton in the early 70s. It was made in 2003.

    Original comb 1 7/16 x 1 7/16 x 2 3/8. LOP 14 1/2. Pitch 4"...1/4 " offset. Replacement cost would be around $5000. I think that answers your questions, if not would you be able to call next week with any questions you might have."

    1 7/16" drop is more drop than usual on a trapgun --- you might list the dimensions you're looking for to make it a bit easier.

    It is not for a trap gun, it is for a sporting gun. I shoot about 1&5/8" to 1& 3/4" drop. Thanks and take care,

    No offense Bubba but as this is mainly a site for trapshooters.com ---- and poster's who no one else would listen to, it might have helped to put that in your initital post ---- you aren't left-handed are you.
