      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

whats it worth J Purdey Shotgun

Recommended Posts

leechlake

I haven't won the lottery yet...

however I did get bequeathed a J Purdey and Sons 20 gauge side by side shotgun, circa 1975. It does not have a spare set of barrels and no wooden case but I still have the gun. It is beautiful to say the least. It has some gold inlay and the only imperfection is a slight hair line crack in the "pistol" grip area.

I have no plans on selling it however any guesses on what it's worth with the above information?

I did some fast digging just looking at the sites and the cheapest one was $19,000 without the case and a small crack it will affect the value. If you decide to get the stock fixed please do me a favor and don't try and save money with a bargain shop gunsmith take it to the best of the best it's a gun that's worth the extra $$$$.

Something great to hand down to future generations, but I wouldn't have the crack fixed if it wasn't for sale. I have a double barrel 12 gauge from one grandfather and a 30-30 from my other grandfather and these guns are invaluable to me and will never be sold by me, but will be handed down hopefully for ever. The value is in who used it and the memories with it. I'm very greatful to have these to pass on. My oldest son also has my fathers shotgun.

Depending on the condition it could be worth $30,000+. The pistol grip is a buzz kill. Does it have a splinter forend or a beaver tail forend. Ideally it'd be straight through the wrist with a splinter forend, double triggers and a swamped rib.
