to post a pic the pic must exist on the internet .
if you have webspace or a webpage it can be uploaded there , or a place like photo bucket
many internet providers give you limited space with your account

once the photo exists on the web its a matter of copying the location

its kinda hard to describe but reletivly easy to do.

Field grade 16 gauge. Serial number 433xxx, made in 1926.
Not a pristine example but in pretty good shape. Like all the early NID 16s this one has 2 9/16" chambers.

Very nice, guys! Considering their age and I am sure were used constantly, I would say they are looking great!

I would not classify that double as a gun so much as I would call it a museum piece.

it is simply magnificent.

Most of the field grade guns have been used a lot and show some wear. This is the nicest one I've seen!

Thanks 1977cutcher! The crazy part is I bought it on Gunbroker and the seller's photos were so poor I thought the wood (and maybe the metal) had been refinished. His description didn't make any fancy claims, he just it was "in good condition." I didn't bid very high, but fortunately I was the high bidder.

I was shocked when I unwrapped the gun and saw it was all original and in mint condition! Most of my Gunbroker purchases have not been this lucky. :lol:
