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 bought this gun here on TS a few months ago and had it shipped directly to AIM / Silver Seitz for a cleaning, tuning etc. While it was there, Richie did a rebluing of the barrel and replaced all springs, worn parts etc. When I got it, the gun was just like new - and still is. I am selling it because I just don't shoot it as well as my SS #007 with a fixed rib/fixed choke.

    This one is the stainless steel receiver, serial # 539. Right now the sideplate is engraved with my name on it but that is easily changed. The barrel is the 35" version with an adjustable rib that can be adjusted to shoot 60/40, 70/30, 80/20 or 90/10. Also included are 4 Wilkinson thin-walled, flush mount choke tubes made specifically for this barrel. The receiver has the gold anodized serrated pull trigger, gold anodized trigger guard and gold anodized sideplate screws, all extra upgrades.

    The wood is the original wood that came with the gun and, except for a small blemish that's been repaired on the forearm, is in excellent shape with an adjustable comb and butt plate. I'll measure LOP when I get home later and post it.

    The gun comes in a burgundy lined Silver Seitz Americase with a black cordura case cover.

    New, this gun is priced over $15,000. I'm asking $9500 and I'll cover insured shipping to your FFL in the Continental 48 via UPS.

    OK, I'll accept the reminder cheerfully, despite the slight sarcasm. As you view these, bear in mind that these pics were taken in differing lighting. The wood is a very nice shade, not light or dark but just right.

    Please note that the choke wrench on the left side in the one the photo with 2 wrenches DOES NOT come with this package.

    Pretty wood.

    For an adjustable rib gun just gone over by Rich Phillips, re-blued barrel, Wilkinson tubes, Americase and an adjustable butt-plate, all in very good condition, $9,500 sounds like a very reasonable price. I suspect you'd be over $16k to buy the exact same gun new.

    LOP with the pad in the pic is 14 3/4". The pad is a 3/4" Kick Eeze and has a 1/8" spacer added in.

    Some additional pics to show the comb, palm swell, butt pad, and that the wood is factory.

    southjblue, they do make a combo. This one isn't a combo.
