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.
  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    I have an original orange Winchester Model 12 Recoil pad. It's in excellent condition. First $75.00 takes it.

    How can you identify a repro from a original?

    If you can't tell by just looking, push on both. The old original has probably turned to wood.

    Boys this is not a matter of being practical. Many old Winchesters had these recoil pads and to be 100% original the gun needs an original pad.

    Like one poster said... The old pad may be as hard as wood. It's true and that is exactly why many were replaced. Those same guns are no longer original and whoever trys to sell them will find out it is a sticking point.

    It is not based in logic or common sense. It is a collecter thing... Jeff

    Patina and a slightly glossy look from years of being rubbed by oily and sweaty hands. The old ones aren't as hard as you think.

    The punctuation mark after the June date, before the 1922, is a "period" on the originals, and is a "comma" on the reproductions.
