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.

    Hi Harvey,

    I don't have a M61 that I'm willing to part with but could you educate me on what a 'routledge' M61 is. Just never heard of it and it sounds interesting.

    BTW the two M61s that I do have are both excellent shooters and it is a shame that they don't build rifles of this quality these days.

    Greg-The Winchester routledge bore was a smoothbore shot for the first 10 1/2 inches and then a counterbore .375 barrel for the last 13 1/2 inches that was made only in 1939 for indoor clay target shooting ranges. The end of the barrel actually looks like a 410. There were supposedly about 75 guns of this variation made. After that time they made counterbore and straight bore .217 barrels.

    I've owned several Remington Model 121's that were marked "Routledge"., but never a Model 61 Win.
