I always enjoy this thread DF! Photobucket is now back to what it used to be? I haven't been to that site since the "change", will have to go look.

From what I've read, PB fired the CEO who came up with the initial extortion scheme. Their new CEO wants to charge a fee, but more in line with reason. They opened up the site, restored previously blocked photos.

I don't know if they'll keep previously posted photos on line, or try extortion on a different level. Time will tell. Don't know if I'm gonna play that game, not too happy with PB. I'm glad this thread has been restored. I did re-post some select photos from Imgur, a much easier site to use.

Glad you enjoy this thread, I sure did enjoy putting it together, met some great folks along the way. There is a wealth of knowledge and expertise on this site.

Yes I've learned ALOT here from these folks. It's always fun to log in and see what's being discussed. The pics are very enjoyable. I signed up for PB... it's $1.99 a month so not a big deal since I have so many pics already there and its easy to use.

After they came to their senses and priced the service accordingly, I also signed up. Too many photos, too much time involved to not play their game. The first offer was extortion and I understand that CEO is now history. Imgur is easier to use, hope they don't go crazy down the road like PB.

lowgun,

I think the serial number is in the 5,000 range. I don't have the gun yet, nor the exact number, but was told it was a 1933 model. Do you think I should not refinish the wood? Although I do pretty good work, I don't know about a pre-war finish. From the pictures it looks like the finish may have had added varnish, but I haven't examined it yet. I had conversed with Scotty on this wire and he's sending his early double trigger gun to Art's for restoration. I would appreciate any advice, etc.

BTW, what's the scoop on the Browning historian and letter?

It is YOUR gun. Do what makes you happy. I will add, though, if it were mine I would leave it just the way it is. That's just me.

I would have thought that this thread would have had much more input that what I have seen here, but then again, just how much can be said about the superposed. I know I am about as luck as I could be to have Dad's gun back under our roof. It's been a long 18 years in the making.

Thanks, Slim.

There is an amazing level of expertise on this site, many contributions to the body of info here on the Askins clan and Browning Superposed shotguns. And, thanks to Bill Askins, who added a lot of info not otherwise published about his family, his Dad and Grandad's guns.

I learned a lot, had a bunch of fun researching this old gun and interacting with the contributors.

DF
